2015 Photo Contest

The Shelby County/Lake Shelbyville Digital Photography Contest has begun!

The Shelby County Office of Tourism in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers/Lake Shelbyville are sponsoring a digital photography contest that began on May 4th, 2015 and entries will end on July 31, 2015.  Photos can be placed on a CD and mailed to SCOT, 315 E. Main, Shelbyville, IL 62565 or digitally to photo@lakeshelbyville.com.

Online voting will then take place from August 11th-24th.  Voting is allowed once per day in each of the four categories per IP address.  The categories are Parks and Recreation, Scenic, Wildlife (NO Human interaction), and Faces at Places.  The winners will then be announced on August 25th.

All photos must have been taken at Lake Shelbyville or Shelby County.  Digital photos must be 5 megapixels or above.  The contest is open to everyone except SCOT & U.S. Army Corps of Engineers employees.  Each individual photographer may enter up to two photographs in each category.  An entry form must accompany each digital photograph.  SCOT reserves the right to refuse entries (ex:  poor resolution, questionable content).  All entries will become the property of the Shelby County Office of Tourism. 

Last year's Grand Prize winner was titled "Breathe".

Use your summer to enjoy the great outdoors, bring your camera and take pictures along the way to enter our photo contest and maybe you will win!
