The Ohio Lake Erie Commission (OLEC) sponsors the annual contest and encourages camera aficionados to submit photos that convey the “Life on Lake Erie” message as they enjoy Ohio’s Great Lake year-round. The photo contest aims at capturing the day-to-day lives of people, plants and animals that live and thrive in the Lake Erie watershed. Winning photos from 2018-2019 are featured in OLEC’s traveling Lake Erie Photo Gallery and will travel throughout Ohio. The Ohio Statehouse is proud to be a host gallery during the month of June 2020.


The ongoing contest is open to amateur photographers, age 18 and older. For contest information, please visit the OLEC webpage at
