CLWA 2022 Photo and Video Contest


CLWA’s 2022 Photo and Video Contest winners were announced at our annual meeting on August 16th. Our panel of judges reviewed entries based on overall creativity, aesthetics, and representation of the watershed. The most popular winner was chosen by the general public based on the number of Facebook votes it received. Congratulations to all our 2022 winners! Find the beautiful photos below.


Winners received amazing local prizes from Simply Crepes, Nolan’s on the Lake, Arbor Hill Winery and Grapery, and The Vine Valley Store. They will also receive placement in our 2023 CLWA Photo Calendar!
