Calling all photographers! There’s still plenty of time for those who love to take pictures of Miami Beach to enter the Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority’s (MBVCA) photo contest on Facebook. The MBVCA is sponsoring a photo contest via their Facebook page to solicit creative and aesthetically awesome images of beautiful Miami Beach. To encourage submissions, the MBVCA is offering world-class prizes: First place, roundtrip airfare from any major city in the continental U.S. plus a 4 day/3 night stay at The Betsy Hotel in South Beach; Second place, $1,000 cash; Third place, an Apple iPad Mini.
Miami Beach is used to being in the spotlight as one of the world’s most photographed destinations, home to iconic backdrops like Ocean Drive and South Beach. The Miami Beach Visitor and Convention Authority hopes to capture amazing images in one location and share them with the world.

Facebook fans are encouraged to vote for their favorite photo, with the top ten photos moving on to a final round of judging by the Miami Beach Convention and Visitor Authority Board of Directors.
