Our Second Annual Celebrating Rivers Photo Contest

CWT News

September 15, 2017

The Water Trust is pleased to announce the return of our photo contest, Celebrating Rivers! 

We know you love Colorado’s rivers and streams as much as we do, so we would love to see your favorite spots captured on film. The photos will be published online and in various print materials for the Water Trust, as well as framed and offered for auction at our annual fundraising event, RiverBank, next year on June 12, 2018. Specifically, we’re looking for pictures of rivers, streams, canals and ditches in Colorado.

Photos will be judged by a panel including professional photographers, with 5-10 photos selected as finalists. Of those finalists, one photographer will be named the grand prize winner and two photographers the runner-up finalists. Prizes will be awarded for finalists, the runner-up finalists, and the grand prize.

The contest opens on September 15, 2017 and will close at 5pm (MST) on October 20, 2017.  A copy of the full rules and regulations, including submission guidelines is available in the PDF document below. 

The following information is required with each photo submitted for entry:  

  • Entrant’s name, mailing address, email address, and phone number.
  • A brief caption including the name of the river, stream, canal, or ditch in Colorado that is featured in the photo with a description of the location (city, if applicable, and/or county) of the picture.
  • The date the picture was taken.

Any photos submitted without this information will be disqualified.

Please submit your entries by email with the subject line "Photo Contest Entry" to Missy Yoder at MYoder@ColoradoWaterTrust.org. 

We can’t wait to see your world!
