Capture Berkeley Lake life through The Berkeley Lake Lens – the City of Berkeley Lake’s Photo Contest. Help celebrate the beauty and spirit of our community with photos from within the city limits of Berkeley Lake.
Open to amateur photographers living in the City of Berkeley Lake, the contest encourages residents to enter images of Berkeley Lake’s uniqueness, its place and its people. Look for the Mayor’s Message to announce the deadlines for each contest period and the contest winners. The winning photograph will be displayed at City Hall for twelve months, and contest sponsor Windsor Realty will make a $50 donation to the winning photographer’s 501(c)3 charity of choice.
Thank you for participating!
