‘Life on Lake Erie’ photo contest is open

The Ohio Lake Erie Commission is seeking submissions for its 32nd annual “Life on Lake Erie” photo contest, which invites amateur photographers to submit their favorite photos of Lake Erie and surrounding landscapes.

The contest is open to amateur photographers who are at least 18 years old and who submit original photos of Ohio’s Lake Erie watershed. Entries may include photos of the lake itself or surrounding landscapes, boating, swimming, people, wildlife or events around the lake, for example. Photos must be taken between Aug. 1, 2023, and July 31, 2024. The entry form and official contest rules can be found at lakeerie.ohio.gov. The deadline to enter the contest is July 31.

Winning entries will be announced at the September meeting of the Ohio Lake Erie Commission. Winning photographs may be displayed on the commission’s website, social media platforms, publications to promote Lake Erie and photography-viewing tours throughout Ohio with Lake Erie partner organizations. ∞
