The annual Kahshe Photo Contest celebrates the beauty of our lake, its people and its good times.

Here are the rules.  

There are five categories. Four are for adult (over 12) photographers:

*Kahshe Nature: Landscape (the natural beauty of Kahshe throughout the year)

*Kahshe Nature: Wild Life: Flora and Fauna (the wide range of wildlife from insects to birds to animals to flowers) 

*Life on Kahshe (people and good times on Kahshe)

*Kids on Kahshe (kids being kids at, on and in Kahshe).

Plus, there’s *Kids’ Eye View, a special category for photographers 12 and under and an opportunity for young people to use their imagination and capture special moments on Kahshe.


The contest period runs from the end of the last contest (July 21, 2023), until 4:00 p.m. July 27, 2024.

That means any Kahshe photo taken after noon July 21, 2023 and submitted before the deadline can be eligible.
