AUSTIN -- What does your Texas drought look like? With more than 97 percent of Texas suffering from drought conditions, that’s what the Texas Department of Agriculture, Texas Water Development Board, and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department want to know. This coalition of state agencies launched an interactive public awareness campaign inviting Texans to submit personal photos capturing what the drought looks like for them and how it has impacted their lives.

From now until Monday, Sept. 30, Texans are invited to share their original photographs of the drought on Flickr, Instagram, and other social media platforms. Photos should illustrate how the drought is affecting daily life -- whether it is dry creek beds, withered crops, native plants flourishing in the dry climate, or the innovative water conservation measures Texans are using to combat drought.

Texas’ many diverse regions are each experiencing the drought in unique ways. This project aims to educate Texans on the critical nature of drought and water conservation. By providing the photographs, the public will help the coalition garner an in-depth view of local drought conditions, ultimately helping manage and conserve the state’s water resources.

According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, nearly the entire state of Texas is experiencing some form of drought, and more than 65 percent of the state is suffering from severe to exceptional drought. The state water plan dictates nearly 25 percent of our future water needs will be met through water conservation.

Photographs may be submitted to our Flickr group, “What does your Texas drought look like?” at http://www.flickr.com/groups/texasdrought. This is a public webpage that anyone with an Internet connection can view, even those who are not members of Flickr. The Flickr page above provides instructions on how to share photos.

Photographs also may be posted to Twitter or Instagram. Please use the hashtag #txdrought when sharing your photos. The campaign’s Instagram account is texasdrought. Tag photos with date, location, and a short description. Additionally, you can email up to three photos to TexasDrought@yahoo.com, and the coalition will post the pictures to their Flicker page. All user-submitted photographs must be original content.
