"The winning photo will appear on DHEC's 2015 annual tide table poster," said Director of Environmental Affairs Elizabeth Dieck. "We're looking for coastal South Carolina scenes including marshes, beaches or wildlife - something that would be appropriate and eye-catching as an image for the tide table."

Printed photographs should not exceed 8.5" x 11". Horizontal orientation is required. All entries must be submitted between September 15 and October 15, 2014.
