Introducing our 2024 Picture of the Year contest

Following the success of 200+ submissions in 2023, we are getting a jump on our 2024 contest.


It’s hard to catch KC’s bad side.

Shutterbugs, rejoice. Our Picture of the Year contest is back after hundreds of submissions and 1,000+ votes in 2023.

That means whenever inspiration strikes — picture-perfect park moments, aesthetic summer fests, landmarks and local lattes — you can submit your stills for a chance to win.

The rules are pretty simple: pics must include a visual element that directly connects to KC + nudity or offensive language aren’t allowed. Let’s keep it PG, please.

Finalists will be selected by the KCtoday team early next year. We’ll open up a vote via the newsletter and social media after that.
