2016 Life on Lake Erie Photo Contest Now Underway

Lake Erie enthusiasts who want to capture the essence of Lake Erie life on film – or digitally – can enter the Ohio Lake Erie Commission (OLEC) 2016 Life on Lake Erie photo contest. 

We encourage photographers to submit their favorite photos of Lake Erie. We encourage entries depicting Lake Erie scenescapes, people, and wildlife taken all seasons of the year. This may include icescapes, ice fishing, thawing, or activities that took place during Lake Erie’s frozen months.

The Life on Lake Erie photo contest is an opportunity for amateur photographers, age 18 and older, to reveal their passion for one of Ohio’s most valuable and dynamic natural features, Lake Erie. Photographs taken between August 1, 2015 and July 31, 2016 in and around the Lake Erie watershed will qualify for the 2016 contest. Entry forms are available on the Photo Contest page and entries will be due July 31, 2016.

Winning photographs will be displayed at various events and through OLEC social media. The photographs may also be used in Commission publications to promote Lake Erie.
