Lens on the Lake 2016 Photo Contest

We're gearing up for our annual photo contest and we can't wait to see what you've got to show us!

The 2016 contest is now closed.

It's that time of year again: The Lens on the Lake photo contest has returned for its 4th year of beautiful photos of our community. This photo contest, presented by White Bear Lake Magazine, showcases the best photographers in our community—not to mention the subjects that give them inspiration.

We're looking for photos that show off the core values of White Bear Lake in five categories:

  • Activities & Events
  • City Landmarks
  • Wildlife & Nature
  • Pets
  • People & Families

We'll accept submissions July 31—August 31 at 5pm, and Readers' Choice voting will take place September 10—September 30. A panel of judges from White Bear Lake Magazine and the community will select the best in each category and announce around October 1.

Start looking back at your favorite photos from the past year and select some favorites. You'll be able to submit your photos via this page beginning July 31, so keep this address bookmarked! Be sure to read the Lens on the Lake FAQ and our official Rules and Guidelines before submitting your photos.
