Photos can be of any subject (scenic, wildlife, recreational) but all photos must have water in them and they must have been photographed in Illinois. The first place winner will receive $50 and the second place winner will receive $25. One entry allowed per person. Entries should be submitted via email to abartolai2@lakecountyil.gov with heading “ILMA Photo Contest” and please include your name and number in the email.
