The President’s Commission on the River is sponsoring the competition. Gift cards will be awarded for first, second and third place.
Photographers of all skill levels are encouraged to enter the contest; cell phone photos will be accepted.
Students are limited to a maximum of three separate photo entries. Digital manipulation should be limited to basic light and color correction.
Entries should include a high-resolution jpeg image of the Ottawa River on Main Campus and can focus on scenic views, wildlife, nature, people or any river-related topic or theme.
A panel of photography and Ottawa River experts will judge the entries. Decisions of the judges will be final.
Entries must be received by 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 16.
Email photos, along with student name, Rocket ID and phone number, to Dr. Patrick Lawrence, UT professor and chair of the Department of Geography and Planning, and chair of the President’s Commission on the River, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Awards will be presented Thursday, Sept. 19, at noon at the Student River Plaza, located between the Student Union and Carlson Library, as part of Celebrate Our River Week.
