Photo Contest

Show us what you love most about East Lansing by submitting up to five photos taken in the community during any of its four seasons! Winning photos will be featured in City of East Lansing marketing pieces - online and in print, including the 2016 Community Calendar & 2015 Annual Report. Winners will also receive gift card prizes!

How to Submit
Photos can be submitted online. Winners will be notified after the deadline and will be asked at that time to submit a Signed Entry Form and Model Release Form (PDF). The model release portion only applies if the photos contain people.

Photos should be high resolution, full color and should not be significantly edited. Recent photos are preferred. Participants do not have to be a resident of East Lansing. 
The contest deadline is Friday, Oct. 16
