The Delaware River Basin Commission has announced its Winter Photo Contest, highlighting amateur and professional photography that conveys the beauty, diversity, function, and significance of the water resources of the Delaware River Basin, a 13,539 square mile watershed that includes the Schuylkill River watershed.

“From the headwaters to the ocean and everywhere in between, winter brings a different perspective to the basin’s water resources, and this contest provides an opportunity to capture, share, and showcase winter’s beauty through your photographs,” said DRBC Executive Director Steve Tambini.

The winning image, to be selected by a panel of judges at DRBC, must be taken in the Delaware River Basin. It will be published in the commission’s annual report, on its social media pages, and will also be featured on its website. All entrants will receive a certificate of appreciation from the commission.

Interested persons can visit for complete contest details, including instructions on how to submit their original, high resolution photographs.

The deadline for entries is Feb. 1, 2018.

The DRBC is a federal/interstate government agency responsible for managing the water resources within the Delaware River Basin without regard to political boundaries. The five commission members are the governors of the basin states (Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania) and the commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ North Atlantic Division, who represents the federal government.
