Kansas Water Office photo contest still on

Slideshow: Get inspired with a look through submissions to the 2019 photo contest.

Kansas is blessed with an abundance of great natural resources, and Kansans are encouraged to capture images of the most vital of these: water.

This year, the Governor’s Water Conference will be a virtual event, but the annual photo contest that is featured in conjunction with the conference is still on, and photographers are invited to submit their best work to be voted on by participants in the conference.

All photos need to pertain to water or water use in Kansas. Examples include all bodies of water, irrigation, agriculture, recreation and fun, or other water infrastructure.

The winning photo will earn feature photo display at the 2021 Governor’s Water Conference. It will also, along with second and third place, be displayed in the Kansas State Capitol and KWO during the year. Oct. 31 is the deadline to submit photos at

Another popular feature of the conference, student research, will also continue to be a feature of the virtual conference.

Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to submit abstracts on their water-related research to be presented as posters. Any research that involves water quantity, quality or water education is eligible and cash awards are available. The submission deadline is Oct. 26.

Visit the Kansas Water Office online to learn more about both contests as well as tentative conference agenda and speakers. Conference registration will be free and available to those planning to attend any of the virtual conference.
