The annual Life in Louisville photography competition preserves images and reminders of Louisville for future generations by challenging student, amateur and professional photographers to submit photos that capture the essence of life in Louisville, Colorado. All images were taken between September 2015 and December 2016.  

 All entries are added into the City of Louisville’s photo collection. Images are archived and also utilized in City publications, giving exposure to local photographers and helping to promote and celebrate the City of Louisville.
