Shutterbugs, start your cameras!

Suffolk County announced Thursday a photo contest in which the winner—whoever takes the picture that gets the most likes on the county executive’s Facebook page—wins a new digital camera.

“Capture that uniqueness and beauty of Suffolk County and share it,” said Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, who dubbed the contest #SuffolkSnapshot.

Photographers are encouraged to take pictures of county parks, landmarks, downtowns or anything else that conveys “the beauty, history and/or spirit of Suffolk County.”

The first place prize is a Canon PowerShot SX280 HS digital camera valued at more than $200. Second place wins a $100 gift certificate to Blend Wine & Tapas in Hauppauge and third place takes home Mets memorabilia.

Contestants can email their photos to photocontest@suffolkcountyny.gov by Sept. 14, when the images will be posted on Facebook.com/SteveBellone. Winners will be determined by how many “Likes” each photo receives on that page. Voting runs through Sept. 28 and the winners will be announced on Sept. 29.

County employees, contractors, their employees and employees’ families are not eligible. For official contest rules and entry information, visit SuffolkCountyNY.gov/photocontest.
