Grab your camera; the Great Lakes Forever photo contest is back!

I’m writing to you as the manager of a photo contest that may interest you. With summer vacations to the Lakes just around the corner, the sixth annual Great Lakes Forever Photo Contest is accepting submissions from May 20 – July 18, 2010. Through the 2010 Great Lakes Forever Photo Contest, photographers can help defend the Great Lakes with their cameras—and get noticed throughout the Great Lakes region.
Biodiversity Project’s Great Lakes Forever program has again partnered with Budweiser to sponsor a photography contest that celebrates the beauty of the Great Lakes through the incredible talent of local photographers. Great Lakes Forever is a non-profit education and activism campaign designed to raise awareness about our vulnerable and valuable Lakes.

The grand prize winner in both the professional and amateur categories will be featured on the 2010 Great Lakes Forever/Budweiser beer coasters. These coasters will be distributed to bars and restaurants throughout the Great Lakes region. In addition to being featured on the 2010 beer coasters, the top three photos in each category will also receive awesome Budweiser prizes.

I hope you will spread the word about this great opportunity to your members. Interested photographers can visit the Great Lakes Forever website,, for contest rules and submission details. The submission deadline is July 18, 2010.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then these photos can make a powerful statement on behalf of our Great Lakes. Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can provide you with more information.

I look forward to seeing your photos!
