    Life at Lake Carl Blackwell - Photo Contest!

    April 1 - October 31

    2022 Life at LCB Photo Contest What do you love most about Oklahoma State University's Lake Carl Blackwell (LCB)? As America's Brightest Orange lake destination, so many things make this place unique. What better way than to capture those moments with a photo! Entries will be considered in the following categories: Nature/Wildlife - On the lake, at the lake, in the lake, and above the lake! Lake/Landscape - A sense of place, space, and beauty People - People enjoying activities on the lake and by the lakeshore This is a monthly competition open to all amateur photographers 18 years of age and older. Entries will be due no later than the last day of each month, starting April 30, 2022, and continuing monthly until October 31, 2022. There is no limit on how many photos an entrant may submit. After taking your photo, post it here along with your name AND the hashtag #lifeatlcb, as this will help us quickly locate all images. Let us know the intended category of the photo and why it is meaningful to you. The more "likes" a photo receives will also be considered. The winner EACH month will receive an Annual Permit for LCB. After close of contest, we will review ALL photos from all entrants. From those photos selected, a 2023 calendar of "Life at Lake Carl Blackwell" will be made available. The winners will receive a two-night stay in one of LCB's beautiful cabins (#09, #10, or #13), valid between December 1, 2022, and April 30, 2023. All proceeds received from the sale of the calendars will go back to the lake fund for future enhancement. We look forward to seeing your photographic talent in capturing this special place!
