Public photo contest
We are hosting a photo contest to gather photos of the Mississippi River. To participate in the photo contest, people can post pictures of the Mississippi River in Saint Paul to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #STPriver. Winning photos that capture the river in one of the four categories below will be chosen on a monthly basis.
* The natural river (wildlife, landscapes)
* The working river (industry, barges, boats, public works)
* The urban river (city, architecture, infrastructure)
* The people’s river (recreation, activities, events)
Winners will be featured online and published as a part of the culminating project for the Great River Passage photography residency. The Great River Passage will use select photos on its website and social media accounts. Winners must follow the Great River Passage on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Current #STPriver Photo Contest Winners
A new winner will be chosen each month through December 2017.
