Photo Contest

The White Rock Lake Photo Contest

The 2021 White Rock Lake Conservancy Photo Contest is going virtual! This year we will have 2 separate Photo Contests, one in April and one in October. The winner of each contest will win a membership to the Conservancy for one year ($40 value). At the end of 2021, the 4 final images (2 from April and 2 from October) will be judged by a panel of Photographers and Board Members to win an engraved stone place in our Pave the Way area at White Rock Lake. The stone is a 6x9 inch engraved paver with up to 3 lines of text ($275 value).

April 2021:

There are 2 ways to enter. Submit via the form below OR post your photo to Instagram with #wrlcphoto1. 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.

We want our members to choose the winner!

The 2 options will be posted on the White Rock Lake Conservancy Instagram and Facebook pages. Whichever photo collectively gets the most likes between both Instagram and Facebook wins a membership to the Conservancy for one year ($40 value).

The contest will run from Thursday, April 8, 2021 at 11:59pm to Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 11:59pm.
