WARSAW – The Watershed Foundation has announced plans for its annual photo contest.
‘Picture your Watershed,’ is a creative way to connect residents with their local natural resources and community, the Foundation said in a news release. “Each submitted picture displays how our local lakes play a role in an individual’s life.”
“At TWF, one of our favorite things is connecting others to the watershed we all share. The photo contest helps promote understanding about how we are all, in some way, connected to and benefit from our natural water resources,” The Watershed Foundation, Executive Director Lyn Crighton explained.
There are four categories:
- Lovin’ the Lakes: People engaged in lake activities – tubing, swimming, walking along the shore, etc
- Wet ‘n’ Wildlife: Animals and wildlife
- Nature’s Studio: Landscapes and watery reflections
- Pollution Solutions: Capturing volunteer efforts and the fixes that protect our lakes
Rules, conditions, and photo submission are available at: watershedfoundation.org/2021photocontest/. The deadline for submitting entries is Dec. 31, 2021. Voting for the ‘People’s Choice Awards will run from Jan. 1 – Jan. 31.
TWF was founded in 1997 to protect and improve water quality in the Upper Tippecanoe River Watershed; spanning from Crooked Lake in Whitley County to the Warsaw-Winona Lake areas.
