Submit your best photos for American Whitewater's annual calendar!


The deadline is August 6th, 2017.


Via our online submission form. Images must be submitted as high-resolution files (suitable for printing up to 10", at least 1MB) for inclusion in the calendar, without monetary compensation. Maximum 10 photo entries per person.


Any and all photographers, from professionals to complete novices. Have you taken a photo before? Then you're ready.


First, you'll get a free copy of the calendar if your photo is chosen. Secondly, you'll know you helped support AW's river stewardship projects as we sell these calendars as a fundraiser. Third, fame. 


High resolution photos (>1MB) featuring rivers from within the United States. Photos of people paddling on rivers will be welcomed as will images of river lifestyle, and near river activities.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, so we'll give extra special consideration to photos of Wild and Scenic Rivers, or potential Wild and Scenic Rivers (which include lots of rivers on public lands). We also like photos that feature one of AW's ongoing river projects or past successes in some way.

We aim for diversity in seasons, boat types, river trip type, river difficulty, and geography. Got a snowy shot, fall leaves, or a steamy summer shot? How about photos of SUP, canoe tripping, or inflatables? Dont worry, we love kayaks too.


We have received so many awesome photos over the years and we really appreciate folks donating their photos!  We can't wait to see the entries for the 2018 calendar.
