Amateur photographers are encouraged to submit their work to the 2012 “Life on Lake Erie” photo contest. Photographs taken only over the past year on and around Lake Erie can be submitted to the OLEC no later than July 30.
Contest winners will receive beach bags filled with useful beach items promoting Ohio Healthy Beaches, along with a copy of Ohio’s Lake Erie Public Access Guidebook.
Winning photographs will be displayed in an online photo gallery as well as on the OLEC Facebook page. The photographs may also be used to promote Lake Erie through environmental and educational programs and publications.
Submissions must be the original work of the photographer and can portray sustainable use, development or protection of Ohio’s Lake Erie coastal resources. They can incorporate shoreline landscapes, wildlife, plants, economic uses, or people enjoying various coastal activities. Black and white and color photographs will be accepted. Digitally altered photos will not be accepted. All submissions become the property of the OLEC.
