Our readers love Hawaii as much as we do. So we’re always thrilled when they share their Hawaii experiences and memories with us.

One of the ways they most often share with us is through photos. Lots of photos. The best of these give even longtime residents like us new perspectives of Hawaii, and reaffirm why we are so very fortunate to call the Islands our home.

Got an amazing photo you took on your last Hawaii vacation? And we mean, truly amazing.

It could win you a return vacation in the Islands in our 16th annual HAWAII Magazine Reader Photo Contest! The contest is open to entries now through Aug. 8, 2014. Our grand prize this year is a round-trip for two to Maui on Hawaiian Airlines and a six-day/five-night stay at the Aston Kaanapali Shores hotel, plus a whole lot of other good stuff to make your vacation perfect.
