Photo Contest

The 2016 East Lansing Community Photo Contest is officially underway! 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 2017 Community Calendar & 2016 Annual Report. Winners will also receive gift card prizes!

Submit Your Photos

Up to five photos taken in East Lansing during any of its four seasons can be submitted online. Photos should be high resolution and should not be significantly edited. Participants do not have to be residents of East Lansing, but all photos should be taken in East Lansing. The deadline to submit photos is Sunday, October 16, 2016 at midnight.

Winners will be contacted after the contest deadline to fill out and submit a Photo Contest Entry & Model Release Form (PDF). Model signatures will be needed for any photos containing people. If preferred, participants can print, fill out and submit their forms ahead of time.
