Pogue’s Run Greenway and Waterway Photo Contest

Monday, April 15, 2019


We are pleased to announce a unique opportunity along the Pogues Run Greenway and the Pogues Run waterway.  Photography buffs and neighbors are invited to submit photos related to the Pogue’s Run Waterway in this unique contest to encourage use and appreciation of the waterway and its greenspaces. Here’s how it works: Amateur photographers (adults & youth age 6+) may submit 2 digital photos (only 2 per person) between April 15 and June 15 to Susan Vogt ( The photo subject is the Pogue’s Run, Waterway, adjacent greenspaces, the Pogues Run Greenway, and ROW rest stops. Eligible Indy Parks include Spades, Brookside, Forest Manor, and the Pogue’s Run Art & Nature Park. Winning photographers will receive cash prizes and gift cards to Near Eastside businesses (over 30 prizes will be awarded). Printed 8×10 photos will be exhibited in the Near Eastside community beginning July 5th and through the month of July at Brookside Family Center, area businesses, and other locations (to be determined). Digital images will also be shared (with credits) via social media. This program is sponsored by Reconnecting to Our Waterways (ROW), Near East Area Renewal (NEAR), the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, The DaVinci Pursuit and the Indianapolis Greenways Partnership.


Please note there is a special category just for kids from the ages of 6-17.

In support of this contest, there are some additional programs to help provide guidance to the waterway, its ecology, and photography.  These events include:

  • Art and Nature Walk at Brookside Park on May 4, 2019 from 2:00-3:30 pm.
  • Introduction to Photography and Ecology at Spades Park on Wednesday, May 15 from 6:00-8:00 pm at Spades Park.
