News and views, and history and humor, about the lake I love.

"I can hear my granddad's stories of the storms out on Lake Erie, where vessels and cargos and fortunes, and sailors' lives were lost." ~ James Taylor, Millworker

Lake Erie Living Photo Contest

2010 First Place winner, 'Marblehead Lighthouse,' taken by Thomas Liskai of Helena, Ohio
If you fancy yourself a photographer,  you could have a chance to win a $500 gift certificate and other prizes by entering the Lake Erie Living Photography Contest. The contest is open to amateur photographers who are at least 18 years old. People who derive more than half their annual income from photography and employees of Great Lakes Publishing are not eligible to enter. One grand prize winner will be selected as well as first place winners in each of the three categories: nature and wildlife, architecture and the man-made environment, and people. Winning photos will be featured in the March/April issue of Lake Erie Living magazine.

Amateur photographers may submit up to three previously unpublished color or black-and-white images, taken in the last three years and captured somewhere within a 30-mile radius of Lake Erie (both the U.S. and the Canadian sides of the lake). Photos must be at least 300 dpi resolution.

Photographers can submit up to three previously unpublished color or black-and-white images, taken in the last three years, and captured somewhere within a 30-mile radius of Lake Erie (both the U.S. and Canadian sides of the lake). The three contest categories are drawn from those subjects of special interest to Lake Erie Living magazine. Photos submitted via mail will not be returned.

Copyright of the image remains the property of the photographer. Entry into the contest constitutes consent to use, reproduce, print, publish, transmit, distribute, sell, adapt, enhance or display submissions for any purpose, in any media, by Lake Erie Living's publisher, for no other consideration beyond photographer credit.

All entrants must hold all rights to a photograph. For a photo in which a person is recognizable, the entrant must acknowledge they have sufficient written permission of anyone appearing in the image to grant Lake Erie Living the right to publish their photo. Photographs previously published or pending publication, or photos that violate or infringe upon another person's copyright, are not eligible.

Lake Erie Living will not accept digitally or otherwise enhanced or altered photos. Minor adjustments, including spotting, dodging, and burning, contrast and slight color adjustments or the digital equivalents, are okay. If the judges see that a photographer has obviously altered a photo, they reserve the right to disqualify it.
You can enter either via email or snail mail. If you are using email, send your submission to photos@glpublishing.com along with your name, phone number, address and a brief description of the photo, including where it was taken. If submitting via regular mail, entries should be unmounted prints made from the original negative, slide or digital file. Prints should be at least 5x7, and no larger than 8x12. Images will not be returned. Please include your name, phone number, address and a brief description of the photo, including where it was taken. Send photos to:
