Photo Contest

The White Rock Lake Photo Contest

This year we will have 2 separate Photo Contests, one in the spring and one in the fall. The winner of each contest will win a membership to the Conservancy for one year ($50 value). In December the 4 final images (2 from spring and 2 from fall) will be judged by Conservancy Members and Board Members to win an engraved stone placed in our Pave the Way area at White Rock Lake. The stone is a 6x12" custom engraved stone with up to 3 lines of text ($400 value).

Spring 2023:

There are 2 ways to enter. Submit via the form below OR post your photo to Instagram with #23wrlcphoto1. All of the submissions will be judged by a panel of Photographers and Board Members of White Rock Lake Conservancy and narrowed down to 2 options that will be posted on social media. The photo with the most likes will win a membership to White Rock Lake Conservancy for one year and be in the running to win an engraved stone at White Rock Lake Park.

The contest will run from March 21, 2023 at 12:01am to April 11, 2023 at 11:59pm..
