Annual Watershed Photography Contest

The Annual Watershed Photography Contest takes place during May for the purpose of reaching the general public with a water quality and watershed appreciation program. The theme is different every year but always focuses on the Beaver Lake Watershed. Check out previous winners below and stay tuned for next year’s contest! Photos can be used from the entire year though the submission deadline, so keep shooting!

In previous contests, we have had some fabulous prizes from our sponsors for the top three winning submissions including camcorders, camera gear, and prints from Bedford Camera & Video, train tickets from the Arkansas Missouri Railroad, and gift cards from Cavecloth and Columbus House Brewery.

The theme for 2017 was “Open Space” – Show your appreciation for Beaver Lake, its watershed, and the water it provides to Northwest Arkansas.

The contest is open to photographers of all ages. To find out more contact us at or 479-750-8007.
