There’s nothing like spending “island time” with your family, taking in the Galveston coast while making memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime. While your memories may be priceless, capturing them in a photograph could lead to some extra bonuses.

The #LoveGalveston2017 Photo Contest began on Valentine’s Day and will run through April. Photographers have a chance to win $1,000 cash for first place, $500 for second place and $250 for third place.
