Conservation Minnesota sponsors 'This Lake Matters' contest

We all have a special lake.  Maybe you have a cabin next to it, maybe it’s in the city and you visit it all the time, or maybe you’ve only been there once. But your memories of it are fond ones.  Whatever your reason, Conservation Minnesota wants to know what lake matters to you and why.

Photographs and videos will be collected through Sept. 6, 2010, for a “This Lake Matters” contest.

All submissions must legibly include the words “This Lake Matters,” and feel free to get creative!  After September 6, Conservation Minnesota will pick five finalist images, giving weight to the number of Flickr comments a photo or video receives.

To become a finalist, the photographer or videographer may need to submit, if requested, an Image release and a release with the signatures of all subjects in the Image.  If the contestant or subjects are under 18, their parent or legal guardian must sign Conservation Minnesota’s release.  You must agree to all terms and conditions to be eligible.

The finalist Images will be posted on the Conservation Minnesota web site.  Web visitors will then have a chance to vote for their favorite finalist Image (photograph or video) from Sept. 15 through Sept. 30.   The photograph or video with the most votes will be awarded a Flip Camera.
