The photo and caption below is an example for contest guidelines, taken by Todd Yamashita.

A young Kaoli Kahokuloa skates the open road of Honoulimalo`o Bay near Rock Point. In the distance, two boys watch surfers on the waves. To me, the photo captures the youthful essence of Molokai and the great opportunity that seems to be just beyond the horizon. The photo would go on to be used as the cover for local musician Sashamon’s debut album, One Day Maybe. Kaoli, now 15, has since become a world renowned surfer carrying major sponsors and winning a number of high profile surf events.
