Wisconsin's Great Waters 2019 Photo Contest and Writing Project submissions

The Office of Great Waters received more than 250 beautiful photos of Lake Michigan, Lake Superior and the Mississippi River for this year's photo contest. Photos were submitted in four categories. Submissions were judged by a panel of DNR employees. Winning photos in each category are featured in our 2019-2020 Wisconsin's Great Waters calendar [PDF].

Eligible photo submissions

Each category is a separate PDF file and each page corresponds to one submission.

Thank you to everyone who shared their photography talent with us this year.

Writing project submissions

This year we received 18 lovely poems, short stories and creative writings from Wisconsin authors. Their work appears in our 2019-2020 Wisconsin's Great Waters calendar [PDF].

Thank you, writers, for sharing your talent with us.
