LCHD hosting amateur photography contest

For the Tomahawk Leader

LINCOLN COUNTY – The Lincoln County Health Department (LCHD) is hosting a photo contest for amateur photographers.

LCHD said it is “seeking out the best parts of Lincoln County.”

“When you think of Lincoln County, what is your favorite part?” LCHD stated. “What makes Lincoln County healthy? When you brag about the county you live in – what do you picture?”

LCHD said photos should represent its “vision of a safe and thriving Lincoln County where everyone has the opportunity for optimal health and quality of life.”

“Please submit one or two sentences as to why your photo represents optimal health and quality of life,” LCHD stated.

Photos must be taken in Lincoln County and must be submitted as high-resolution JPEG files to [email protected] by Saturday, July 15.

No panoramic, digitally-enhanced or altered photos, and only one photo per person, will be accepted.

“Tall thin, photos from phones do not reproduce well for our use,” LCHD stated. “Please send photos that can be used as 4×6-inch or 8×10-inch prints.”

Each photo submitted must include where, when and why the photo was taken, as well as the photographer’s name, phone number, mailing address and email address.

Professional photographers and individuals who sell their photos are not eligible to enter the contest.

“By entering the contest, photographers are verifying that the image is their own and are agreeing to have their submitted photos used/copied/displayed (without fee or compensation) for the contest voting purposes in local publications, in articles relating to the contest, saved for any future use by LCHD, and on the Facebook page,” LCHD stated. “Photos that are picked will be contacted via email to sign a consent form for the use of your photograph.

LCHD said it reserves the right to reject any photo submitted that does not comply with the contest rules, is not properly labeled or is deemed inappropriate.

First-place winners will receive a 2024 Wisconsin State Park vehicle sticker. Second-place winners will receive a gift certificate valued up to $15.00.
