Updated: May 5, 2021

Ripple Effects Photo Contest

Ripple Effects: Exploring Water in Louisville photo contest is presented by Louisville Free Public Library, the Kentucky Division of Water, Kentucky Center for African American Heritage, University of Louisville College of Education, Louisville Water Company, Waterfront Park, and River City Paddle Sports. The contest invites all K-12 students in the Louisville area to capture images of what water means to them. What is the most beautiful aspect about water in our community? What water-related problems do we need to address? How do we use, recreate, and interact with water?

Cash prizes for 1st ($200), 2nd ($100), 3rd ($50), and honorable mention ($25) will be awarded for the best photographs in the following age categories: kindergarten through 2nd grade; 3rd through 5th grade, middle school, and high school. The winning entries will also be featured in an exhibit this fall as part of the Louisville Photo Biennial.

Photo submissions are due by June 10 (one photo per student) and the winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony on June 21 at Waterfront Park.
