We walk beside it, wait for its bridges, maybe let the grandkids dangle a fishing pole in it. If you’ve shot a special photograph of Lake Worth Lagoon, now’s your chance to show it to the world.
Sponsored by the Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Management, the 2nd Annual Lake Worth Lagoon Photo Contest is open until July 15. The competition is designed to create awareness of (and affection for) the 20-mile stretch of estuary located off the island’s western shore.
Photos must have been shot on or in Lake Worth Lagoon, and submissions may include these images: landscapes, underwater, plants, wildlife, man-made objects, people interacting with nature, sunrises, or activities such as boating, fishing, birding or snorkeling. A total of 16 winning entries will be selected in two groups, one for adults and the other for children younger than 16.
Winning photographs will be published in the 2017 Lake Worth Lagoon calendar, which will be available at the LagoonFest celebration Nov. 12 along the West Palm Beach waterfront. For contest rules, submission guidelines and other information, please visit the LagoonFest website.
