2021 Grassy Waters Nature Photography Contest

This contest is to showcase the natural environment and diversity in Grassy Waters Preserve (Preserve). All entries must be taken on/of the Grassy Waters Preserve property by amateur photographers.

Solid Waste Authority lands and trails (shown on some Grassy Waters maps) to the east of the Preserve are not part of the Preserve. The Preserve is defined in the following map…click here.

Reminder...if an entry contains the image of a person(s), the person(s) should not be able to be identified.

For the complete 2021 rules…click here.

The Youth contest has now been combined with the adult contest as a category. Please see the specific rules for the Youth category.

Again this year we will be offering a "People's Choice" winner. This winner will be selected from all the entries based on votes by you, made through the contest website. The "People's Choice" winner will be the entry with the most votes on the website. There is no limit to how many times you can vote for an entry, and each $1 vote is a tax-deductible contribution to the Conservancy. Youth category entries are not eligible for "People's Choice" voting.

The other selected winners will be judged by the Preserve and GWC staff, as well as a professional photographer.
