The purpose of this contest is to promote Pontchartrain Conservancy’s Lake&Coast app. The app is slated for release on iOS and Android devices in August 2021, in celebration of Water Quality Month! All photographs must be taken at one, or multiple, of our 12 sampling sites. We are seeking night and daytime photos of each site, totaling 24 photos. There are no limits on the number of photos, or sites photographed, a contestant may submit. Photos should portray the natural habitats, recreational opportunities, or wildlife and fisheries of each of our sites.
