COURTESY PHOTO - "Owl" is one of four photos people can vote on in the plant and wildlife category. The city is turning to the community to help capture the best photos for Lake Oswego's annual photo contest.

Local photographers — amateur or professional — entered Lake Oswego's 13th annual photo contest. People could enter photographs in any of the seven categories: "Life in Lake Oswego," "Places in Lake Oswego," "Positive Aging in LO," "Plants and Wildlife in Lake Oswego," "Pets in Lake Oswego," "Digitally Altered Photographic Images" and "Youth."

Community members can vote for their favorite photo by 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 15. COURTESY PHOTO - "Pacific Tree Frog" is one example of a photo that was entered into the plant and wildlife category for the city's photo contest.

Photos are being judged on quality, creativity and how well the image portrays Lake Oswego.

"Technical quality, clarity and composition are all important, but so is a flair for the unexpected and the ability to capture a picture-perfect moment," the city's website read.

For those under age 18 who submitted in the "Youth" category, their photos could be taken of any subject in Lake Oswego.

The "Positive Aging in LO" categories incorporated photographs of people 50 and older doing activities like hiking, picnicking, attending city activities and events or painting.COURTESY PHOTO - People can vote on this photograph of a woodpecker in the plant and wildlife category for the city's photo contest.

There will be a first, second and third place winner in each category who will receive a gift card of either $150, $100 or $50. And the city is looking for community members to help determine the winners.

The winners will have their photographs displayed as part of a photo exhibit at City Hall throughout the following year, as well as on the city's website and in publication as part of the city's November newsletter HelloLO and the e-newsletter LO Down.
