The 2024 “DLLT Photo Contest” is happening now! Submit your pictures before the deadline. With its varied landscapes, abundant wildlife, local traditions, and colorful characters, there are many different subjects to be captured and immortalized on film. Show us your best photographs of the area!  Rules and guidelines for the DLLT Photo Contest are listed below.  All photos must be submitted by emailing

The deadline for submission is May 15, 2024.


Photo Contest Rules

1. All photos submitted must be shot in the Downeast Lakes region.

2. All photo submissions must be completed electronically and in the digital format of JPEG, JPG, PNG, or GIF. All photos must also have a minimum resolution of 5 megapixels.

3. Please do NOT submit the following:

  • Photos that violate or infringe upon another person or other entities’ privacy or other rights, including but not limited to copyright.

5. Categories are: Waterways, Forests, Wildlife (no pets or domestic animals), Traditions, Community, Sunrise/Sunset, and Storm Damage.
As you can see we have a new category this year. The storms in December caused a tremendous amount of damage that will be around for generations. We would like to document the storm damage and use it as a learning tool.

7. Each submission must have an accompanying Name, Address, Phone Number, and Email Address.

Photos will be selected for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category. The 1st place winner of each category will receive a $25 gift certificate to The Pine Tree Store.  And, the overall, “Best In Show” winner, as voted on at this year’s Grand Lake Stream Folk Art Festival will win a free guide day in Grand Lake Stream, courtesy of DLLT!!! Winning entries will be featured in our biannual newsletter, Downeast Lakes Traditions.

Good luck!!!
