Annual Photo Contest

2024 Winners

In 1979, Brian Shortsleeve founded Cape Cod Life with two specific goals. First, to share his love for the Cape & Islands, and second, to do so through beautiful photography.

Our Annual Photo Contest pays homage to Brian’s original mission by sharing the hard work of local photographers, honoring the early morning hours they spend out in the marshes of Sandwich or along the dunes of Truro trying to immortalize one perfect Cape Cod moment.
