Photo contestants are encouraged to capture an image that reflects natural living in the Saginaw Bay Watershed. Images can include waterways such as rivers and streams, plant life or flora, forest and natural wooded scenery, and even wildlife, birds and insects and people, although releases will be obtained for any human subjects captured on film.

Valerie Roof, Executive Director, said, "This contest is not only popular with our community, it's a great way to effectively promote the natural beauty of our region and give visual proof that our land is worth protecting."

Contestants will have plenty of room to choose their best shot. The Saginaw Bay Watershed is the largest watershed in the state, filtering 15 percent of state inland waters. It features more than 175 inland lakes and nearly 7,000 square miles of rivers and streams. Hundreds of contestants snapped digital and film-based photos for the 2007 contest. The winning photos are displayed at Bay City State Recreation Area.

The contest is open to the public, with no entry fee. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three winners in each photo category and winning photos will be posted on the Saginaw Basin Land Conservancy website as well as in the organization's newsletter, "The Watershed Wire." Contestants can choose from five photo categories: Landscapes; Plants and Flowers; People in Nature, Student Category and Wildlife.

The Saginaw Basin Land Conservancy's second annual photo contest is sponsored by The Saginaw News and The Bay City Times. Photos entered in the contest will judged by a select panel of professionals with backgrounds in environmental protection, art and photography. Photos will be judged on originality, composition and subject matter.
