The Hill Country Alliance holds a yearly photo contest encouraging photographers to capture memorable images of the diverse wildlife and stunning rural landscapes of the Texas Hill Country.

The four prize photographs were selected by a panel of judges from over 400 entries. In addition, the public was able to to view the photo contest entries and vote for their favorites. Steger Chapman won this People’s Choice Award for his impressionistic image of a glassy river titled Wimberley Reflection. All of the winners will be featured in the alliance’s 2021 Hill Country Calendar, along with photographs by other contestants. The calendar is available for purchase on the Hill Country Alliance website.
