Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- It's time to light up the city of Duluth as we enter into the holiday season and what better way to make the city shine than with a holiday lighting contest.

Residents and businesses within the Duluth city limits, or at a 558 zip code, are invited to take part in the 2012 Duluth Holiday Lighting contest.

Contestants will be judged on the best lighting display with a new category that allows the public to vote on their favorite holiday display called the "People's Choice".

Deadline for submissions is on Monday, November 16th at 5pm. Those interested in participating can access an entry form from the Lake Superior Magazine's website.

Lighting display entrants will be announced on November 22nd in the Duluth News Tribune.

A panel of reviewers will judge each display with final judging taking place between December 1st and 4th.

Winners will be announced by Mayor Don Ness and recognized with trophies and prizes at the Bentleyville VIP event on Thursday December 13th at the Inn on Lake Superior.
