WARSAW — The Watershed Foundation has kicked off its annual “Picture Your Watershed” photo contest.
Participants can enter photographs into the contest at watershedfoundation.org/events. Rules and instructions for entering the contest can be found there.
Photographers are encouraged to submit their favorite pictures from the land and lakes within the upper Tippecanoe River watershed.
The competition is limited to photos taken in the upper Tippecanoe River watershed, spanning from Crooked Lake in Whitley County through the Tippecanoe River downstream of Warsaw. This area includes Big, Crooked, Loon, Goose, Old, New, Barbee, Center, Chapman, Pike, Ridinger, Tippecanoe, Webster and Winona lakes; Tippecanoe River; and all of the land within.
“We are looking for photos that really capture the spirit and beauty of our watershed,” said Jennifer Romano, communications coordinator for The Watershed Foundation. “It’s quite impressive to view our watershed through the lens of our very talented local residents, to see where they find peace and enjoyment in the vastness of our watershed.”
The deadline to submit photos is Dec. 31. After that, the organization will begin open voting for the “People’s Choice” award through www.watershedfoundation.org.
TWF was founded in 1997 to protect and improve water quality in the upper Tippecanoe River watershed. In the past 25 years, TWF has worked with farmers and lake residents to implement more than 200 water quality improvement projects, keeping lakes healthy and stopping pollution at its source.
