@COWaterTrust: “Celebrating Rivers” 2017 Photo Contest

Here’s the release from the Colorado Water Trust:

Send us your best pictures of your favorite river!

Second Runner Up, 2016 Celebrating Rivers Contest
Grace Carberry, Watching the River – Platte River

Our second annual “Celebrating Rivers” photo contest is underway!

Last year, we announced our first annual photo contest in celebration of our 15th anniversary. We were thrilled to see over 70 photos, including the second-runner up winner above, from Grace Carberry. Grace is a junior high student in the Denver metro area who works on river restoration projects on the Platte River, and her affection for “her river” is seen in her photo above.

We loved sharing her story and her photos last year, so are you ready to share your story about your favorite river? We’re accepting photos now through next Friday, October 20. More details about the contest, including the contest rules, can be found here.

We’re lucky to have generous and loyal friends, like Peter McBride and Down River Equipment, who have offered prizes for our contest winners and finalists. Our grand-prize and runner-up winners will receive a free ticket each to our annual fundraising event, RiverBank, in June 2018, gear from Down River, and this gorgeous hard-copy book, “The Colorado River, Flowing Through Conflict,” featuring two award-winning National Geographic contributors, photographer Peter McBride, and writer Jonathan Waterman. All this and bragging rights? Get your entries in!
