Contest focuses on St. Louis River images

The St. Louis River Alliance is sponsoring a photo contest to celebrate the seasons and beauty of the largest U.S. River that flows into Lake Superior.

Contestants are asked to submit striking digital images that highlight the diverse flora, wildlife and recreational activities that connect people to their natural habitat as well as images of the harbor activity.

The St Louis River Alliance plans to feature many of the photographs submitted to this contest in its work to help protect the river's amazing diversity of wildlife, people, plants and habitats. Winners will also receive cash prizes, exposure on multiple websites, an exhibit at a local Superior gallery and entry and recognition at the St. Louis River Alliance's Annual Winter Gala.

The contest is open to all photographers, except employees of the St Louis River Alliance and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and their immediate families, and all persons directly involved with sponsoring and promoting the contest and the final judging.

All images must be submitted through the WooBox website using a Facebook account, More information and instructions can be found on the St. Louis River Alliance website,

Complete all required fields, including name, email and other information about your photo submission. Digital images that are sent via mail or email will not be accepted.

Online entries can be uploaded through Dec. 1. Winners will be announced at the St. Louis River Alliance Open House Dec. 28.

The St. Louis River Alliance reserves the right to adjust any deadline(s), if necessary.

Photos will be voted by the public online to select the "People's Choice Photo" winner, and a panel of judges will select the top three photos in each of three categories — scenic (wildlife, birds, flora), people or recreation, and harbor activities.
