"This photo contest is a fun way for the Corps of Engineers to interact with the visitors to Dale Hollow Lake and to see the recreation, scenery and activities ongoing on the lake and in our recreation areas," said Stephen Beason, resource manager at Dale Hollow Lake. "Pretty much everyone has a digital camera these days, so I’m excited to see the entries that we get."

Some notable rules of the contest are photographs containing nudity, obscenity, profanity, pornography, violence, and anything that is lewd or offensive in nature, or otherwise inappropriate images will be excluded from the contest.
