Voting is now closed.

It's that time of year again: The Lens on the Lake photo contest has returned for its 8th 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 August 1—August 30 at 5 p.m., and Readers' Choice voting will take place September 9—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. Be sure to read the Lens on the Lake FAQ and our official Rules and Guidelines before submitting your photos.
