Submit photos to Mankato’s 2021 photo contest by 4:30 p.m., Friday (August 27). This year’s winners and honorable mentions will be featured in the City’s 2022 printed City calendar. The first-place winner will also receive a $100 gift certificate to the Mayo Clinic Health System Event Center. 

Photographers of all ages and skill levels may enter up to 10 photographs into the contest. Photos should highlight something appreciated about the City of Mankato and capture this year’s theme, Hometown Pride. Ideas include views, landmarks, Mankato spaces and places, things that highlight community values, or anything that makes Mankato special to the photographer.
