WRRC 2020 Photo Contest - Arizona & Arid Zones
The WRRC photo contest is back, and we are excited to see what our contestants will bring to the table this year. As with the last few photo contests we’ve held, the main criteria are that the photos be taken in Arizona and feature water. This year, however, we have added a special category* for photographs of water taken in arid regions outside our state. We want to see water in cities and towns, water in nature, water and people, water and industry, water and anything that sparks your imagination. So what are you waiting for? Show us what you’ve got. We look forward to seeing your unique and amazing photos! Check out previous winners!
