EAST LANSING, Mich. — The deadline is less than a month away for the City of East Lansing’s 2019 Community Photo Contest, officially sponsored by Meijer, the East Lansing Downtown Management Board (DMB) and the East Lansing Farmers Market (ELFM).
Community members who submit photos by Sunday, Oct. 13 at midnight will be in the running for fantastic contest prizes. Meijer has generously donated $500 in gift cards for the photo contest winners, including a $150 gift card for 1st place, a $100 gift for 2nd place, $50 gift card for 3rd place and $25 gift cards for honorable mention photos (8 total).
The DMB and ELFM have also generously donated prizes for this year’s Downtown East Lansing and ELFM categories. The participant who submits the best photo of downtown East Lansing will receive a $100 downtown East Lansing parking voucher and the participant who submits the best photo of the ELFM will receive a $20 ELFM gift card market bag and t-shirt.
In addition to the prizes, the winning photos will also be featured in City of East Lansing marketing materials – online and in print.
Community members from throughout the region are invited to show off their photo-taking talent by submitting up to five high resolution digital photos that illustrate what they love most about the East Lansing community – from its beautiful parks, community events, venues, facilities and more! Photos must be taken in East Lansing.
Photos can be submitted online at www.cityofeastlansing.com/photocontest. Winners will be contacted after the deadline to fill out and submit a signed entry/model release form. The model release portion only applies if the photos contain people. The forms are currently available on the website for those participants who would prefer to submit their forms ahead of time.
