From professionals to hobbyists, photographers are encouraged to enter our annual contest.
St. Croix Valley Magazine enjoys showcasing the Valley’s community in a number of ways, and that includes sharing readers’ points of view through what they see, appreciate and capture with their cameras.
Each August, we encourage readers to submit their favorite photos to our Lens on St. Croix Valley photo contest. Whether it’s a picture of their family, pets, a local landmark or a beautiful landscape they saw while out and about, we want to see it!
St. Croix Valley Magazine accepts photo submissions during the month of August through our website stcroixvalleymag.com. Submitted photos are reviewed by our editorial and art departments to determine winners.
Winning photos are decided by consensus, so each submission is carefully considered. Though we certainly consider subject and photo quality, our favorite photos are the ones that illustrate and celebrate this community through the perspective of the photographer. We select runners-up and honorable mentions as the number and quality of photos allow.
Readers can also vote online for their favorite photo submissions in the Readers’ Choice category during the month of September.
Winners, runners-up and honorable mentions in the following categories receive consideration for photo placement in an upcoming issue of St. Croix Valley Magazine and on our website and social media pages.
- Activities & Events
- City Landmarks
- People & Families
- Wildlife & Nature
