Kansas is blessed with great natural resources and Kansans are encouraged to capture the most vital of these, water. The Kansas Water Office (KWO) is accepting water photos to be featured at the 2016 Governor’s Water Conference this coming fall. The photos need to pertain to water or water use in Kansas. Examples include all bodies of water, irrigation and agriculture, recreation and fun, or other water infrastructure.
Worthy entries will be selected for display at the 2016 Governor’s Water Conference, scheduled for Nov. 14-15, 2016 in Manhattan, KS. Attendees at the conference will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite photo. The winning photo will earn feature photo at the 2017 Governor’s Water Conference. It will also, along with second and third place, be displayed in the Kansas Water Office during the year.
Entries should be sent to [email protected] with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. The following formats are accepted: .jpg, .png and .gif. Participants have until Oct. 15, 2016 to enter a maximum of five photos that follow contest guidelines.
