Recreation Photo Contest

Our recreation areas are rich with opportunities for both amateur and professional photographers. Each year we conduct a photo contest for our recreation permit holders, looking for the best photographs taken at RWA recreation areas by you, our permit holders. Bring along your camera while hiking, biking or fishing, and snap away!

The contest has five categories: Wildlife, Plants, Water Scenes, General Scenes and, new for 2017, a Youth category. Each category has up to four finalists. All finalists are invited to attend the Annual Meeting where the winners are announced. The winner in each category receives a $100 gift certificate; the other finalists in each category each receive a $20 gift certificate
