Photo Contest: Show Us Your Patch of New Jersey and Win! Sponsored by Unique Photo

Show off your favorite photos, from 'down the Shore' to your own backyard.

We know New Jerseyans have a serious love affair with their state. From “down the Shore” to our own backyards, our state has beaches, cities, forests, mountains and more. For the next month, share your favorite photos of the Garden State in our Your Patch of New Jersey photo contest, sponsored by Fairfield’s Unique Photo.

The only qualifications are that the photos you upload are your own and that they say “New Jersey” to you in content, tone and spirit.

For the first two weeks of March (March 4-18) we will be collecting local submissions. Vote in the comments for your favorite by referencing the photo’s number in your comment. One vote per user.

The winners of each local contest will go onto a regional battle against 20 other Patch winners. On March 18, we’ll announce the local winners. On April 1, we’ll announce the grand prize winner.

Each local winner will receive a $50 gift card to Unique Photo. The grand prize winner will receive a $200 gift card to Unique Photo.
