1 Mississippi Photo Contest 2010
We are looking for striking images of the Mississippi River and surrounding wetlands that show what an awesome resource it is and its relationship with people and nature. These images may show wildlife, Mississippi River landscapes, weather or people enjoying the River on trails, boats or river banks. Ideal photographs will convey a sense of the Mississippi River as a national treasure, cultural icon and source of community pride.
