The Watershed Foundation seeks entries in annual photo contest

Get ready to let your creativity flow like the gentle waters of our beloved lakes! The Watershed Foundation is thrilled to announce the launch of its annual “Picture Your Watershed” photo contest!

Capture the breathtaking beauty of our land and lakes within the upper Tippecanoe River watershed through your camera lens. This is your chance to share your perspective, your moments of peace and your connection to this remarkable environment.

Remember, your photographic masterpiece should be set within the upper Tippecanoe River watershed, stretching from the serene Crooked Lake in Whitley County to the graceful Tippecanoe River downstream of Warsaw. This inviting expanse includes more than 60 lakes and the land surrounding them in Noble, Whitley and Kosciusko Counties.

The calendar pages are turning, the summer days are waning and the deadline to enter is December 31, 2023. In January, you’re also invited to help choose our People’s Choice award-winning photo. Awards will also be presented in several categories, including: 

– Lovin’ the Lakes:  People engaged in lake activities – tubing, swimming, walking along the shore, etc

– Wet ‘n’ Wildlife:  Animals and wildlife
