Announcing the 2023 MITA Photo Contest!

Presented by


Despite a record-setting summer for wet weather on the Maine coast, the Maine Island Trail continued to captivate and inspire those who ventured out to experience it. We know that many of those moments were captured in photographs, and we want to see the results!

We are once again hosting the MITA Photo Contest, presented by Hamilton Marine. This year’s submission deadline has passed. Take a look at the incredible images that are in the finals and vote for them here!


  • GRAND PRIZE: Our Grand Prize winner will receive a gift certificate to Hamilton Marine, full-page publication of their winning photo in the upcoming edition of our printed newsletter, “The Island Trail”, recognition through MITA’s digital channels, and a special prize from MITA.
  • SECOND AND THIRD PRIZE: Our second and third prize winners will receive recognition through MITA’s channels as well as special prizes from MITA.


Thanks for participating, and good luck!
