  • Thank you for this photo contest, and also for posting the photos from previous years. I really enjoy going through them and being reminded of how beautiful and picturesque Cuba is.

    I have picked up photography as a hobby recently and this has given me a chance to enter my very first photo contest.

    i am sending about 3 photos for each category, however, I did not take these photos for this contest, My photos were my way of documenting the sights on my trips to this beautiful Island we call Cuba 🙂

    Searching through my files to find the right photos was a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle and the daily grind of everyday life out here in Los Angeles.
    THANK YOU H.T.

Submit your pictures to our Photo of the Day section
You don’t have to be a professional photographer, just send an image (in black and white or color), with a photo caption indicating where it was taken (city and country), type of camera or cell you used, and a small description about it.
Note: it is better for our format if you send horizontal orientation pictures. Even square will work but vertical is a problem.
Send your picture with your name and birth country, or where you reside, to this email address: [email protected]
