Got great photos of Utah? Enter them into our bimonthly photo contest "Monumental Exposure." First-, second- and third-place winners will win cash prizes ($150, $100 and $50 respectively) and see their work in print. We invite photographers of all experiences levels to submit photos based off of the themes below. Our finalists will be featured on our social media sites, where people will vote on them to help us decide which photos to publish. Subscribe to Utah Life to see examples of previous winners and read our list of photography tips to make sure your photos have the best chance they can have.

If you have any questions or concerns, don't be bashful! We want to hear from you. Contact us at photos@utahlifemag.com or give us a call at (801) 921-4585, and we'll get back to you faster than a race car on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Photo contest instructions

All eligible photographs must be taken in the state of Utah. Check out the themes for each issue's contest. Although we publish photos according to a theme, feel free to submit a photo that doesn't correspond to a specific theme; we might hold on to your photograph for future contests. We do not claim any license on your photos until we ask you if we can print them in the magazine. Photographers can withdraw their submissions at any time. We'll hold on to them because though some photos are wonderful, they might not match with the theme we're publishing in that specific issue, so we want to hold onto them so that they will be eligible to win the contest in future issues if they are more applicable to that theme. We won't ever use your photos without your permission.

You may submit as many photos as you like. Please submit them one at a time using the form below so we have the correct information associated with each photo. Please upload high-resolution photos if possible.
