The Lake Erie Center’s ninth annual photo contest is accepting entries through Friday, Nov. 2.
Amateur photographers of all ages and skill levels are invited to share their nature photographs featuring the beauty of the region extending from Oak Openings to Maumee Bay.
“We host this contest every year because we feel it is important to mesh art and science, and we enjoy showcasing the amazing photographs we receive each year,” said Rachel Lohner, education program manager at the Lake Erie Center.
The theme of the contest is “The Nature of Our Region: From Oak Openings to Maumee Bay.”
Color and black-and-white photographs will be accepted. Entries are limited to three per person.
Prizes will be awarded in multiple age categories. First-place winners in each category will take home $25, and the grand-prize winner will receive $100.
Winners of the contest will be invited to attend an awards reception and receive their prizes in January.
