RWD, WCI, WJ Team Up For Photo Contest

For its second annual photo contest, RiverWorks Discovery (RWD) and Waterways Council Inc. (WCI) have joined forces with The Waterways Journal. The contest, which runs August 1 through October 31, is called #waterwaysbuildamerica and will focus on the four “Cs” of RiverWorks Discovery—commerce, culture, conservation and careers.

The name for this year’s contest was a collaborative effort between Capt. Ken Eaves of Marathon Petroleum, who came up with the hashtag, and RWD’s Executive Director Errin Howard, who incorporated the four Cs into the contest.

Photos should represent one of the four Cs and be submitted to facebook.com/riveroutreach with one of the following hashtags: #waterwaysbuildamerica_commerce, #waterwaysbuildamerica_culture, #waterwaysbuildamerica_conservation, or #waterwaysbuildamerica_careers. All submitted photos should include the photographer’s name; the name of the towboat, building, bridge, river or scene of the photo; and the location of where the photo was taken.

There will be prizes for first place from each category. Winners will be announced on the social media pages run by WCI, The Waterways Journal and RiverWorks Discovery. Prizes include a one-year subscription to The Waterways Journal, a one-year membership to the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium and other accredited AZA institutions across the country; a photo recognition at the Waterways Symposium, being held in Chicago November 14-16; and a copy of “A River of Memories with Captain Charlie Jones,” based on the life of a living river legend in the industry.

For more information, contact Howard at 513-403-9312.
