We all know that San Felipe is a photographer’s paradise and that we have some of the continent’s most talented photographers living in the area.  We think it is time to showcase that talent and boost the San Felipe economy.  We want to put together a collection of the best photos displaying the wonders of San Felipe and share them with the world.

¡Sí, San Felipe!, A Photo Essay of Our Town is going to be the talk of the town and we want your input!  They say a picture is worth a 1000 words so we want to publish a “100,000 word” book sharing the San Felipe we know and love.  This collection of the best 100 photos submitted will serve a dual purpose, both promoting travel and tourism to our town and generating funds for the numerous associations and people who are working to make life in San Felipe better for all.  How would you like to see your photographs published in this sensational souvenir book?

To accomplish this, San Felipe Chatter and the Reluctant Fundraiser are joining forces to launch a San Felipe area-wide photo competition with entrance fees, specific requirements and the whole nine yards!


The top three photos will receive a cash prize of

  • $100 for 1st Place

  • $50 for 2nd Place

  • $25 for 3rd Place

Winners will be notified by email and winning photos will be posted on this website.
