Susquehanna River Basin Commission Hosts Traveling Photo Gallery

HARRISBURG, Pa. – On December 14, 2017, the Commission will begin hosting the Susquehanna Greenway Partnership’s Traveling Photo Gallery that showcases the winning images from the 6th Annual Susquehanna Greenway Photo Contest. The Susquehanna Greenway Partnership (SGP) holds their annual photo contest as a way of showcasing and inspiring connections between communities and the Susquehanna River. Winning images from the photo contest are then printed and framed to travel throughout the Susquehanna Greenway the following year. The gallery will be open to the public at the Susquehanna River Basin Commission, 4423 N. Front St., Harrisburg, PA, 17110, from 9am-4pm through January 8, 2018. Please note that the Commission will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

All photographs were taken within the Susquehanna Greenway Corridor, which runs about a mile on either side of the Susquehanna River within Pennsylvania. Photographs were presented anonymously to a panel of five judges and evaluated based on composition, technical quality, and adherence to the category themes. This year’s contest categories included Treasured Landscapes, Treasured River Towns, Susquehanna Adventures, and a Youth Category for young photographers under 18 years old.

While the photographs are not for sale, SGP produced a beautiful 2018 calendar with all the photographs, which is now available for sale through their website at www.susquehannagreenway.org/calendar. All funds raised through the sale of the calendars will go directly to the 2018 photo contest and traveling gallery.

The winning photos will be travelling up and down the Susquehanna River on display at seven locations through July. The Commission offered to serve as host for the winning photos to emphasize our interest in connecting people to the shared water resources that are so important to their communities.
