Photo Of PA's Neshaminy Creek Winner Of Delaware River Basin Commission Summer Photo Contest; Fall Contest Starts

The Delaware River Basin Commission Wednesday announced Paul Michael Bergeron’s photograph, titled Lazin’ at Neshaminy Creek on an Early Summer Day, was chosen as the winner of the Commission’s Summer 2018 Photo Contest.  
The Neshaminy Creek is a Pennsylvania tributary to the Delaware River.  Twenty-four photographs were submitted by 13 individuals for the contest.
“I became enthralled with the Delaware River from living on the waterfront for over twenty years,” said Paul Michael Bergeron of Andalusia, Pa.  “Nature, bird, and wildlife photography is my passion, especially capturing the beauty and magnificence of the historic Delaware River and its environs.”
The winning image was chosen by a judging panel of four DRBC staff members and will be featured on the commission’s website at and on DRBC’s Twitter and Flickr social media sites.  The photo will also be published in the commission’s 2018 annual report, and the winner will receive a certificate of recognition.
“We thank everyone who entered this season’s photo contest,” said DRBC Executive Director Steve Tambini.  “While there were many great entries to choose from, Paul’s photo stood out for highlighting one of the best parts of summer and something that we at DRBC love to see: people outside, connecting with nature and enjoying the waters of the Delaware River Basin, be it fishing, wading, or simply relaxing and taking in the view.”
The purpose of DRBC’s seasonal photo contest is to highlight 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.
Fall Contest Opens Sept. 24
The Fall Photo Contest will begin on September 24 and has a deadline of November 1, 2018.  Complete contest details, including instructions on how to submit photographs are available at DRBC’s Photo Contest webpage.
