2020 King Tide Photo Contest

Date: January 04, 2021

The New Hampshire Coastal Adaptation Workgroup is a collaboration of 20+ organizations working to ensure that New Hampshire’s coastal watershed communities are resourceful, ready and resilient to extreme weather and long-term climate change.

Now a regular event, the King Tide contest aims to raise awareness of New Hampshire’s rising tides. “King tide” is a term used to describe astronomically high tides, which occur when the Moon is full or new. These exceptionally high tides illustrate how coastal areas will be impacted by sea level rise. The most recent contest received over 90 eligible submissions. Members of the public were invited to vote online for their favorite submissions in each of the three contest categories from November 18 through December 2, 2020. The following submissions received the most votes in each category and are hereby declared the winners of the 2020 King Tide Contest.

Contest winners have been notified and will receive a $100 gift card to a local restaurant of their choosing.

Please direct all questions to Nathalie Morison, Resilience Project Manager with the NHDES Coastal Program, at [email protected] or (603) 559-0029.
