Call for Photo Entries –

The Watershed Alliance is calling for entries for the annual photo contest for the 2022 calendar. We are looking for landscape and nature photos that show the unique beauty and diversity of the Westport River watershed (i.e. the river, streams, wildlife, plants, etc.). Photos from all seasons are being sought, limit 5 photos per person.

•Pictures should be submitted as JPG’s.   
•Image size should be no smaller than 10 x 8 inches (pixel dimensions 3000 x 2400).
•Image resolution should be 300 dpi or greater, file size 1MB or greater.
•Deadline for image submission is June 1, 2021. 

Each image should be given a title by the artist and the name of the image file should match the image title.  The artist should also include their name, so that they can be credited in the calendar. Image submissions can be emailed to outreach@wrwa.com.

By sending in your pictures you are allowing WRWA to use your pictures to inspire the appreciation and celebration of Westport’s beautiful estuary. WRWA is grateful for the talents of local photographers who share their wonderful photographs annually for the popular calendar, which also features charts of the tides throughout the year.

 

Beauty of Westport

The Beauty of Westport Photo Sales to benefit the Westport River Watershed Alliance.

WRWA has enjoyed the generosity of local artists for many years as they provide their beautiful images to our organization for the annual calendar and for sale at the annual Summer Gala.  Now you can order these images on canvas frame or as a mounted print and they will be delivered directly to your door.

This offering will help raise funds for WRWA during this time when we have had to cancel many of our important fundraising events, and it serves to remind us all of the beauty and power of nature.  We are fortunate to live and work in such a beautiful place!

We can offer a much larger selection of photographs, mounting and sizes by special order- call 508-636-3016 x 1003 or email outreach@wrwa.com.

Photograph offerings will be changed seasonally.
