Introducing our 2024 Picture of the Year contest

Following the success of 1,000+ submissions in 2023, we are getting a jump on our 2024 contest.


“Sundance Square Disco Ball Hat,” by Chelsea R., was last year’s winner.

At the end of 2023, we ran a photo contest and garnered over 1,000 submissions. Thanks, Fort Worth. We love how shutterbug-y you are.

The photo above — “Sundance Square Disco Ball Hat” by Chelsea R. — got over 32% of the votes + clinched the award.

We’re almost halfway through 2024 now (whoa), so we’re officially opening up the 2024 Picture of the Year contest. You can submit shots now + we’ll casually remind you a few more times before the end of the year. We’ll pick a winner at the beginning of 2025.

The rules

Most important rule: Photo submissions must include a visual element that directly connects to Fort Worth. Examples include a photo from a local sporting event, music performance, festival, or other 2024 happening; a picture taken at a local park; or a shot that highlights a landmark in our city.

Photos that do not include a local element will not be considered. Additionally, photos that include nudity or offensive language or visuals will not be accepted.

Finalists will be selected by our team at the beginning of next year, and then we’ll open up a vote via the newsletter and social media after that.

If you’re ready to submit a photo, you can do that now.


Where to go

Visual inspiration can arrive anywhere, but you can also strategically position yourself for an amazing snap.

Consider attending a major summer event, checking out one of 25+ awesome parks, taking your fur-ever friend on a hike, or even sipping a latte at a top coffee shop.

There’s beauty in so many moments. Document yours because we’d love to share your results with our readers.
