Each year the CWEA Annual Conference Photography Committee holds a photo contest that aligns with the conference theme. CASH PRIZES!


CWEA invites all amateur photographers to enter the CWEA Annual Conference Photo Contest. Photos may depict anything related to the clean water profession, with special attention to the Annual Conference theme for that year. Photos due March 1.
