Coastal Georgia Photo Challenge


The Coastal Resources Division of Georgia DNR needs your help! We're looking for your best photos of Georgia's 11 coastal counties -- Chatham, Effingham, Bryan, Wayne, Liberty, Long, McIntosh, Glynn, Brantley, Camden and Charlton.

We will use these photos in informational brochures, social media and on our website. If your photo is selected for use, we will mail you some CRD swag, such as a Hoo-Rag brand neck gaiter, fish decals, baseball cap or other goodies. 

The types of images we're looking for include:

  • Beaches
  • Marshes
  • Boating
  • People fishing
  • Fish and other marine life
  • Marinas
  • Docks
  • Beach crossovers
  • Dunes
  • Coastal plants
  • Commercial fishing/shrimp trawling

By submitting these images, you agree that the Georgia Department of Natural Resources can use these photos for noncommercial purposes in perpetuity. Photos should not be severely edited or color corrected (i.e. Instagram filters, extreme saturation).

Images should be high-resolution JPEG format. We cannot guarantee you will receive photo credit. Photos should be free of watermarks. You must own the rights to the photos you submit. Be sure to include the location where the photo was taken in the form below.

Most of all, we thank you for your participation! Georgians are what make the Peach State the best place to live in America!

If you have problems uploading your photos, email them to and please include your mailing address so we can send you your swag!

Please give your photos a little bit of time to upload after clicking the "Submit Report" button. You'll know they are successfully loaded when you see them listed below the upload button with a "remove" icon.
