About the Contest

We launched the 1st crowd-sourced, “Best Harbor” online contest in 2019, and have since had 4 annual events. Although we missed the 2023 event due to an ownership transition we underwent, we are thrilled to be back with our 5th annual contest this year. Each year millions of people who live and work on our coasts have a chance to vote, submit photos, and let the world know what makes their harbor special.

“We’re so honored to be able to support the passion–and connections–that preserve the vitality and resilience of our coastal communities through this event. It’s a thrill to see local communities vie for the top spot: it’s nail-biting in the last few days of voting as positions change quickly. We look forward to crowning this year’s “Best Harbor” winners.”
