Press Staff Writer

        The Ohio Lake Erie Commission (OLEC) is seeking submissions for the 29th Annual Life on Lake Erie photo contest.
        The contest is an opportunity for amateur photographers to showcase their talents for photographing one of Ohio’s most valuable natural resources – Lake Erie.
        “No matter the season, the lake always is a wonderful place to enjoy the outdoors, providing a perfect backdrop to capture breathtaking moments through the lens of a camera,” said OLEC Executive Director Joy Mulinex.
        The contest is open to amateur photographers who are at least 18 years of age. Submissions may include original photos of Lake Erie and the surrounding landscapes, as well as boating, swimming, ice fishing, people, wildlife and events that take place on and around the lake.
        Photos taken between Aug. 1, 2020 and July 31, 2021 are eligible for entry. Entry forms and official contest rules can be found at the OLEC website, lakeerie.ohio.gov. All entries must be received by July 31.
        Winning photographs may be displayed on the OLEC website and social media platforms, may be used in Commission publications to promote Lake Erie, and for photography-viewing tours throughout Ohio with Lake Erie partner organizations. Winning photographs and photographers will be featured at the fall meeting of the Commission.      
         OLEC was established to preserve Lake Erie’s natural resources, to protect the quality of its waters and ecosystem, and to promote economic development of the region. OLEC members include the directors of the state departments of Transportation, Health, Development Services, Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection. There also are five public members appointed by the governor.
