Got a knack for photography and capturing Kentucky on camera? For this year’s Photo Contest, we’re on the hunt for beautiful, original photos that fall into one of five categories:

  • Animals

    “Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That’s the problem.” ― A.A. Milne

    Who doesn’t love animals? They’re beautiful, cuddly, majestic.  If you have an awesome picture of a furry, winged, or even scaly friend enter it in this category.

  • Humor

    “Laugh as much as possible, always laugh. It’s the sweetest thing one can do for oneself & one’s fellow human beings.”– Maya Angelou

    Sometimes, a single image can invoke laughter long after seeing it. If you have a photo that would make someone guffaw, snort or at least chuckle, share the fun.

  • Nature

    “Heaven must be a Kentucky kind of place.” –Daniel Boone

    From its glistening lakes to its beautiful mountain vistas, Kentucky is rife with natural beauty.

  • People

    “A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.” – Edward Steichen.

    A smile. A look. A moment of connection. There’s nothing quite like capturing a moment in a person’s life.

  • My Co-op

    Electric co-ops are all about the communities they serve. And we’re celebrating that spirit with our new Photo Contest category, “My Co-op.”

    We’re looking for photos from your co-op community. It can be a picture of a co-op annual meeting, a local festival, lineworkers maintaining electric lines, or anything that illustrates how much you appreciate having electricity in your home.
