Winners will win prizes including a print of their photograph which will be part of a traveling local exhibit following the competition!

Our categories for the 5250 Photo Contest reflect the importance of the Clean Water Act to our local watersheds. We invite local photographers to submit photos capturing how the Clean Water Act has protected the rivers of the greater Winyah Bay watershed in the categories of:

FISHABLE – Photos should capture how our rivers provide for everyone. Photos of fishing, wildlife, and other interpretations are welcome!
SWIMMABLE – Photos should capture how we use our rivers for recreation. Photos of people enjoying the river and of our river landings are welcome!
DRINKABLE – Photos should capture the splendor of our surface waters. Photos of scenic landscapes – or waterscapes – are welcome!
GEORGETOWN COUNTY – Photos should demonstrate the water resources and culture of Georgetown County. Photos from throughout the county are welcome!
YOUTH – Photos should be taken by children and young adults under age 18. Photos for any category are welcome!

The contest is open to everyone. Emphasis in judging will be given to photographs that highlight the focus of the Clean Water Act to protect fishable, swimmable, drinkable water in the greater Winyah Bay watershed.
Each contestant may enter as many photographs as desired. Entry fee is $11.00 per photograph.
Entry Categories are Fishable, Swimmable, Drinkable, Georgetown County, and Youth.
The photographs must be taken in North or South Carolina. Photos submitted for the Georgetown County category must be taken in Georgetown County, SC.
Each contestant agrees to allow Winyah Rivers Alliance, and its sponsors, to use their entries without compensation to promote our vision of fishable, swimmable, drinkable water for all communities.
