Protecting Jacob's Well and the Springs of the Wimberley Valley

2013 Hill Country Photo Contest runs through May 31

Loving and learning about the Hill Country

Now in our 7th year, the HCA photo contest is a wonderful way to explore, learn and teach about the special qualities of the Texas Hill Country. We’re not only looking for photography that captures the spectacular beauty of this region, but also illustrations of the rare qualities worth protecting and stories that need to be told.

  • Unique recharge features that are so important to our water supply, habitats for endangered birds, spring-fed creeks and streams, native plants, natural stream banks, and great examples of wise land stewardship practices.

  • Unblemished scenic vistas, native wildlife species, fields of wildflowers and sprawling old oaks, pecans and cypress.

  • Your favorite swimming hole, scenic vista, bend in the river, state or local park, stretch of roadway, working ranch or rugged landscape.

  • Historic places or cultural icons that reflect of the spirit and heritage of the region.

Capture what speaks to you and what you’re compelled to share with others. Together we can inspire a culture of conservation and a community of informed participants.
13 winners will appear in the 2014 HCA Hill Country Calendar. Other photos will be featured throughout the calendar in cameo appearances. In addition to a full page photo feature, winners will receive a cash prize.

  • Grand Prize: $300

  • First Prize: $200
