2018 Kansas Water Office Photo Contest

Welcome to the 2018 Kansas Water Office Photo Contest. This years photo contest is now closed. Thank you all for the amazing photos of our beautiful Kansas waters. Stay tuned for the top finalists to be announced, with the winners being announced after our Governor's Conference coming up in November.

Water is a vital resource in Kansas, and the KWO Photo Contest looks to highlight not only the beauty of the resource, but also it's many different uses throughout the state. This year, five categories will be the focus of our photo contest, as well as a youth division for those 18 years of age and younger. (See below for category information) If you have a photo that you would like to share, but aren't sure what category it would fit under, please still submit the photo and we will find a place for it. Judges also reserve the right to move the photo to a more appropriate category.
