DRBC Announces Delaware Basin Fall Photo Contest Winner

“Bridge Between Two Seasons” by Kevin Haines

The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) on Tuesday announced that Kevin Haines’ photograph, “Bridge Between Two Seasons,” was chosen winner of the commission’s fall 2018 photo contest.

Forty-three photographs were submitted by 12 individuals for the contest.

“I have been hiking, canoeing, and photographing the Delaware River since 1972 and love every trip,” said Haines, a resident of Brick, N.J.

The winning image was chosen by a judging panel of four DRBC staff members, and will be featured on the commission’s website and social media sites.

“We thank everyone who entered this season’s photo contest,” said DRBC Executive Director Steve Tambini.

DRBC’s seasonal photo contest highlights amateur and professional photography representing the beauty, diversity, function, and significance of the water resources of the Delaware River Basin, a 13,539-square mile watershed. Approximately 15 million people (or about five percent of the nation’s population) rely on the water resources of the Delaware River Basin to support a variety of significant uses including public drinking water, industry, agriculture, power generation, recreation, fisheries, and aquatic life.

The DRBC Winter Photo Contest begins on Dec. 21 and has a deadline of Feb. 15, 2019. Complete contest details, including instructions on how to submit photographs, are available on the DRBC website.

The DRBC is a federal/interstate government agency responsible for managing the water resources within the Delaware River Basin without regard to political boundaries.  The five commission members are the governors of the basin states (Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania) and the commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ North Atlantic Division, who represents the federal government.
