The Downeast Lakes region is filled with unique beauty – varied landscapes, abundant wildlife, local traditions, and colorful characters. There are so many different subjects to be captured and immortalized on film, it is often hard to choose your favorite shots of the area. Pictured: 2020’s Traditions category-First Place, by Maya Woodward.

Send us your best shots of the area – winning entries will be featured in the DLLT summer newsletter and showcased at the Grand Lake Stream Folk Art Festival!
