We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Water Resources Research Center Photo Contest. This year we gave photographers only two criteria - that photos be water related and that they be taken in Arizona. We received an array of stunning images that took our request to heart. People, nature, economy and other topics were covered by the many photographers who submitted their images.
We would like to sincerely thank all of the participants. We had entries from throughout the state and even a few from out of state. We were very impressed by the quality and variety of photographs entered. This made choosing the winners a daunting yet exciting task.
And the winners are:
Best in show: John Bartholow – Oak Creek Evening Near Sedona 2011
Economy: David Schafer – Wating by the Windmill Camp Verde
Nature: Suzanne Schorr – Arroyo Chico Tucson 2015
People: Ben Lepley – Central Arizona Project Goodyear 2016
