    Each entrant in the Contest is responsible for ensuring that he or she has the right to submit the photo to the Contest per these rules (either be the photographer or have permission from the photographer). The image must be at or under 3MB, jpeg format, contain the location and a short description of how that image celebrates water. One (1) submission will be permitted per email address.

    A pre-determined panel of judges will choose the winner based on all images submitted: odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received. Winner will be selected and notified by said panel on Friday, June 13, 2014. The panel will take into consideration how closely the submitted images and descriptions represent a celebration of water in Arizona. Submissions without a description will not be considered. Once notified, winners have 3 business days to respond, or risk forfeiting the prize.

    By entering, the submitted photo will be made available for Water – Use It Wisely to use on its website, social media channels or in presentations to promote the celebration of Arizona water and the contest (photographer will be given credit).
