Chippewa River Watershed Project seeking photos for 2011 calendar contest

The Chippewa River Watershed Project is sponsoring a photo contest and is seeking entries that feature the Chippewa River Watershed. The winning photos will be published in a 2011 calendar and featured on the Chippewa River Watershed Project website and other publications.

The "Best in Show" winner will have their winning photo professionally matted and framed. Photo submissions are due to the Chippewa River Watershed Project by September 15, 2010.

Anyone is eligible to enter the contest; you do not need to live in the watershed to submit a photo. The photo must be taken in the Chippewa River Watershed, which includes many tributaries and lakes. Entries should include a river or lake feature or have a water quality theme.

Photos from all seasons are encouraged. Submissions are limited to a maximum of three photos per person. Photos can be submitted digitally or as paper photos. All photo entries must include a submitted registration form to be eligible for the contest.

For more complete contest rules and registration forms, visit the Chippewa River Watershed Project's website at or call (320) 269-2139 extension 120. Maps of the watershed are also available on the website.
