Prizes will be awarded, and photographs submitted for the contest will be used by the City for marketing, promotional and public relations purposes. The theme of the contest is “Find Your Florida in Palm Coast.” Winning photos will illustrate what makes Palm Coast special. Examples of what the City is looking for include: family fun at our festivals, sports activities, cultural clubs and organizations, and on our parks and trails; active lifestyle such as walking/running/bicycling, sports, swimming, fishing and boating; and nature such as beautiful landscapes, birds and other wildlife, and waterways. The City wants to share what’s special about Palm Coast. First, second and third place will be awarded, plus special awards for a new people-focused category, “Palm Coasters” and for the Best Photo taken by a youth age 17 and younger. For the first time, a concurrent photo contest on Instagram will be held, and prizes will be awarded for the best Instagram photos, too. To enter via Instagram, be sure to use the hashtag “PCpics2018” and include the photo location (where in Palm Coast?) in the caption. Gift certificates to local businesses will be awarded in the following amounts: First Prize, $200; Second Prize, $100; Third Prize, $50; Instagram winner, $100; “Palm Coasters” winner, $50; and Youth winner, $50. Gift certificates will be offered to a variety of businesses, and winners will be able to select from the list. In addition, honorable mentions will be awarded as determined by the judges. Winning photographs will be displayed on the City’s website, and winning photographers will be recognized at a meeting of the Palm Coast City Council. Photographers may submit up to 20 entries. It is free to enter. Entries must be submitted no later than midnight May 31, 2018.
Photographs submitted for the contest must be taken in the City of Palm Coast.

SENATE HOLDS FLOOR SESSION: The Senate is scheduled to hold a floor session. (Wednesday, 10 a.m., Senate chamber, the Capitol.)
HOUSE HOLDS FLOOR SESSION: The House is scheduled to hold a floor session. (Wednesday, 10:30 a.m., House chamber, the Capitol.)
JURY RECOMMENDATIONS AT ISSUE: The Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments on four issues, including a debate about jury instructions in death-penalty cases. The issue stems, at least in part, from a 2016 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in a case known as Hurst v. Florida and a subsequent Florida Supreme Court decision. The 2016 U.S. Supreme Court ruling found Florida’s death-penalty sentencing system was unconstitutional because it gave too much authority to judges, instead of juries. The subsequent Florida Supreme Court ruling said juries must unanimously agree on critical findings before judges can impose death sentences and must unanimously recommend the death penalty. (Wednesday, 9 a.m., Florida Supreme Court, 500 South Duval St., Tallahassee.)
SCOTT, CABINET MEET: Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet will take up a series of issues, including a proposal that would help conserve 772 acres in Madison County that was the site of a Spanish mission in the 1600s. Scott and Cabinet members will decide whether to spend $660,060 to purchase what is known as a conservation easement on the property, which is owned by R.N. Koblegard III and Charlene Koblegard and has been farmed for more than 80 years. (Wednesday, 9 a.m., Cabinet meeting room, the Capitol.)
PAROLE CASES HEARD: The Florida Commission on Offender Review will take up a series of parole cases. (Wednesday, 9 a.m., Betty Easley Conference Center, 4075 Esplanade Way, Tallahassee.)
