The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District (HCSWCD) is accepting submissions for the 8th Annual Photography Contest from amateur photographers throughout Hamilton County. We will accept photographs in both the youth and adult age categories.

Each participant can submit up to 5 entries showcasing our contest theme – Indiana Conservation in Color. Digital files and entry forms must be submitted by June 24, 2022. Remember to add a descriptive caption to each entry portraying how the photo relates to this year’s theme.

“We are excited to showcase various aspects of conservation through this year’s photo contest,” said Diane Turner, Conservation Technician and Outreach Coordinator. “Our chosen theme is Indiana Conservation in Color, and we hope to receive many great photo entries displaying conservation practices throughout the county. Hamilton County is well-known for the creativity of the residents living here, and we know this year will be very competitive.”

Once again, People’s Choice Award winners in each of the categories will receive a $50.00 prize. A panel of judges will choose additional winners for a total of four winners to be honored. Photo entries will be showcased at the Hamilton County 4-H Fair July 14 – 18, 2022.
