City of Clearlake announces 2021 City Photo Contest

CLEARLAKE, Calif. — The city of Clearlake is accepting submissions for the 2021 City of Clearlake photo contest themed “Living the Lake Life.”

This year, the city is co-sponsoring the contest with Council member Joyce Overton to offer cash prizes to three winners: First prize will win $200, second prize is $150 and third prize will win $100.

Photos should show what the city’s official motto, “Living the Lake Life” means to the photographer, focusing on activities, events, and people.

The photo contest will run until Sept. 12 and the winners will be announced at the
annual State of the City on Oct. 13.

Entrants can have their photographs displayed at City Hall, the new visitor’s center or the community center, as well as on the city’s website.

“We are excited to see what ‘Living the Lake Life’ means to Clearlake,” said City Manager Alan Flora. “We are looking for photos of events like the July 4 parade, concerts in Austin Park, and fishing off the pier at Thompson Harbor. As COVID-19 restrictions are being eased and people are getting active in our community again, the photo contest is another part of showing how resilient Clearlake can be.”
