2018 QWS Photo Contest

The Quiet Water Society is holding their 4th annual photo contest. Photos should exemplify the mission of the Quiet Water Society which is to promote non-motorized outdoor recreation and conservation of our Great Lakes Resources. Simple yet eye catching photos which include participants engaged in recreation or conservation activities work best. If chosen, your photo may be used in our advertising, on our show programs or in our billboard campaign.

Special consideration will be given this year to photos that include young people involved in non-motorized outdoor recreation. Hiking, cycling, paddle sports, camping, fishing you name it we want it.

Help us by submitting your photo for use in promoting the 2018 Quiet Water Symposium. The Society will choose up to six different photos for use in our event awareness campaign. Winning photographers will receive our undying gratitude, a warm feeling and recognition credit which will result in fifteen minutes of fame. The photographers whose photos are chosen for use in our billboard campaign will also receive fame on a much higher plane. 

  • Post one and only one of your photos to the Quiet Water Society Facebook Page with the comment “2018 QWS Photo Contest”. You must also e-mail a high resolution copy as an attachment to Allen@MackinawWatercraft.com along with a brief description. You must be the photographer or own the rights to the photo. The judges will choose from these.
  • The contest will end on August 15th. Winners will be notified soon after.
  • Once selected, the photographer must also submit a signed release from all persons (or their guardian) whose recognizable image is contained in the photo.
  • The ownership of each image submitted is retained by the photographer. Submission of the photograph grants The Quiet Water Society the right to use the selected image to promote the Quiet Water Symposium and other events sponsored by the Quiet Water Society.
