Lincoln County Economic Development Foundation (LCEDF) is hosting the 2021 #LiveLincolnCounty Photo Contest and will be accepting digitally submitted photos through November 30, 2021.
The purpose of this contest is to positively promote quality of life in Lincoln County, Kansas. As we begin work on the 2022 issue of the Live Lincoln County magazine, we aim to focus on the people that make Lincoln County a great place to shop, stay, dine, hunt, work, and live! We will be highlighting all our new businesses, our outdoor lifestyles, and the events we all enjoy together.
We will award cash prizes ranging from $50 to $200 for photos that focus on People in Lincoln County:
- People being active and enjoying outdoor sports
- People participating in or enjoying local events
- People building up our communities through volunteer work
- People shopping, eating, walking our towns
- Entrepreneurs and local business activities (Global Entrepreneurship Week is Nov 8-14 – special prize for photos celebrating local entrepreneurs)
LCEDF encourages community members, alumni, and local photographers and artists to enter the contest by uploading high-resolution, original photos to this page using the form below. Look through the photos you’ve taken in the last year and see what represents Lincoln county people and our quality of life!
- Original photos only
- Taken in Lincoln County, Kansas
- Larger than 1 MB in size (no compression please)
- Uploaded at full resolution (no screenshots please)
- No filters applied (we cannot use blurry or heavily processed photos)
Entries received that do not meet these minimum requirements will not be considered for prizes. Live Lincoln County staff, along with additional volunteers, will select winners based on quality, creativity, and demonstration of contest goals.
Photos that meet the requirements of the contest will be added to a photo album on the Live Lincoln County Facebook page following the entry deadline of November 30, 2021. After a voting period of one week, the photo with the most likes and shares will be selected as the People’s Choice winner for an additional prize.
Participants and winners agree to allow their photos to be used in various print and online publications, including the LiveLincolnCounty.com website, travel guide magazine, social media, table tents, brochures, and other promotional materials. We always try to give photo credits anywhere we can! Photos that include people may require a signed model release.
Update December 1: The 2021 Photo Contest entry period is now closed. Thank you to everyone that submitted photos this year! Online voting for a People’s Choice winner will be soon on our Facebook page, as well as announcements about all the winners!
