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.

We are excited to announce two new photo contest categories this year!

Categories are:

  1. Breaking barriers and working together to protect our water resources – highlighting the hardworking people of the industry, and the importance of partnerships and people working together to find solutions to our infrastructure challenges. Photos may be of anyone working in the water or wastewater industry (design, construction, maintenance, laboratory, etc.);
  2. Impacts and innovation caused by climate change on Hawaii’s water and wastewater resources – highlighting the infrastructural challenges faced today and the innovation it inspires. Photos may be of water or wastewater infrastructure impacted by climate change and/or the innovative solutions used to mitigate these impacts.

Qualified photo entries will be displayed along with the photo descriptions provided on the entry form by the photographer.  The description should provide the photographer’s perspective on how the photo represents the theme of the category.  All entries must be received by Jodie at or Jeremy at NO LATER THAN 11:59 pm (HST) Friday, January 24, 2020.
