Photo Contest

We think the Harbor District presents an immense opportunity for the future of Milwaukee – for new jobs and businesses, for an improved environment, and for public access to our shared waterways. As we work with partners to carry out the recommendations of the Water and Land Use Plan over the coming years, we also want to document the current and changing conditions of the area, from your perspective. 

Take part in our first annual Harbor District Photo Contest and help us capture the ships, people, wildlife, and changing landscapes of the Harbor District. There are 12 themes – one for each month of the year.
