Thom Mazak

The Lake County Library System is proud to announce the first annual Photography Contest for K-12 students and adults. This year’s theme will be ¡Viva Libros! to support the 10th annual Lake County BookFest.  Awards will be announced at the 6:30 p.m. on Friday, March 15th Author’s Reception at the W.T. Bland Public Library. The winning photographs will be displayed in a separate event at the Lady Lake Public Library and also available for viewing on the Lake County Library System website. 

All students (K-12) and adults in Central Florida are encouraged to enter as many times as they wish. Original photo entries are now being accepted at www.mylakelibrary.org/photo_contest.  The photographs should capture Florida’s natural beauty and/or history as chronicled in books. Prizes will include gift cards for the first through third place winners.
