Wisconsin's Great Waters 2018 Photo Contest and Writing Project submissions

The Office of Great Waters received more than 200 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 2018-2019 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 16 lovely poems, short stories and creative writings from Wisconsin authors. A sampling of their work appears in our our 2018-2019 Wisconsin's Great Waters calendar [PDF].

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