MADISON – Wisconsin’s Great Lakes photo contest is now accepting entries. This year there’s a new category to highlight the businesses and industries that rely on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior.

Winning photos will be featured in the Wisconsin’s Great Lakes 2013-2014 calendar distributed at the 2013 Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to our annual contest this past year. Now we’re especially excited about our new category, Wisconsin’s Working Lakes,” says Steve Galarneau, who leads the Department of Natural Resources’ Office of the Great Lakes. “Lake Superior and Lake Michigan are critical resources for many Wisconsin businesses and industries, and we look forward to entries that reflect their important economic role.”

Photos of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior as well as their tributaries, wetlands and harbor towns are eligible, with all submissions due by Feb. 1, 2013. Photos in all seasons are needed and will be accepted in the following categories: Natural Features and Wildlife; Cultural and Historic Features; People Enjoying Wisconsin’s Great Lakes; and Lake Protection Activities, and the new category, Wisconsin’s Working Lakes, according to Jo Temte, the Great Lakes specialist coordinating the contest.

The Office of the Great Lakes is also accepting writings about Lake Superior or Lake Michigan. Statements, short essays, stories, poems and songs can be submitted to the Office of the Great Lakes. Photos and writings may be used in the calendar and other Great Lakes publications as well as on the DNR’s website and in displays and presentations.

For more information, contest rules, and submittal instructions, search the DNR website for “Great Lakes photo contest.”
