iHeart Oswego Announces Lighthouse Photo Contest Photo provided by H. Lee White Marine Museum

     After the success of the Balloon Festival Photo Contest, iHeart Oswego is conducting yet another photography contest during Harborfest weekend: capture the lighthouse.

     Kevin Rookey placed a bright pink heart on the Oswego Lighthouse. Several H. Lee White Marine Museum volunteers who worked on that heart project including Ted Pananyotoff and Ron Wilson. In addition, the H. Lee White boat was used to shuttle the volunteers and Kevin and his brother, Tim out to the lighthouse. The heart is powered by a 12-volt battery which is solar powered. 

     The contest requires participants to capture a stunning image of the Oswego Lighthouse sporting the bright pink heart. Only three images per participant will be allowed and they must be at the highest resolution possible. All entries must be submitted by July 27 at 9:00 a.m.

     Submissions can be made by sending photos to [email protected].

     The winner, who will be announced next week, will receive a basket filled with goodies from Harborfest as well as recieve a print of their image on fine-art photography paper, courtesy of Copies in Time, Copy & Print Center. The winning image will also be featured on our official Facebook page.

     The solar-powered heart lights up the lighthouse at no cost to the city. iHeart Oswego hopes this new temporary addition to the lighthouse provides smiles and stunning images from residents of Oswego and visitors alike.
