The 2020 Pacific Water Conference Contest is held to promote awareness of water and wastewater issues and environment, and to recognize the men and women in the industry, through compelling and artistic imagery.

The categories for entries are:

  1. Breaking barriers and working together to protect our water resources;

Besides the top three for each category, qualified photo entries also have a chance to be voted by the conference attendees.  The photos will be displayed along with the photo descriptions provided on the entry form by the photographers.  The description should provide the photographer’s perspective on how the photo meets the theme of the category.  The photo receiving the most votes in each category will be the People’s Choice winner.
