Butts County is now an official member of the Ocmulgee Water Trail Partnership. The goal of the OWTP is to promote the importance and usage of the Ocmulgee River. One means of promotion is through the OWTP Annual Calendar which includes photos of the river.

The 2019 calendar’s theme is “The Hidden Treasures of the Ocmulgee River”. Photograph submissions for the Ocmulgee Water Trail Partnership’s 2019 Calendar are now being accepted.

Photos should convey the recreational, nature, conservation, or beauty of the Ocmulgee River. They must be the original photograph taken by a non-professional photographer. There is a limit of two photographs per photographer. No prints are accepted and all photographs must meet the resolution and format requirements.
