The phrase, “take a picture; it’ll last longer,” takes new meaning as you take your impressive imagery of Lake County.
The second installment #LetsSnapLakeCounty Photo Contest ran from mid-September to Halloween. By utilizing our third-party gallery aggregator Crowdriff and the #LetsSnapLakeCounty hashtag, we received 300+ submissions. Continue here to view the 2020 photo contest winners.
Your friends at the Lake County Convention and Visitor Bureau were astounded by our visitors’ and residents’ photography talent. We asked you to showcase where you live, work, eat, play and shop and you did not disappoint. The snaps were downright #InstaGood.
Visit Lake County rated your submissions, and in this announcement, and we will reveal the winners of the following six categories: “Grand Prize Winner,” “Outdoor Photos,” “Family/People Imagery,” “Dining/Libations,” “Lake County Event Photography” and “Other Travel Culture (including architecture, downtown areas, photo manipulation, shopping, drone, etc.” Visit Lake County would like to thank the winners and those that took the time to enter a submission.

While we loved all of the snaps you submitted, there were a few more debated at lengths to win one of the categories. Visit Lake County would like to revisit, highlight and commend those shutterbugs that submitted beautiful and inspiring imagery.
