Great Outdoors Photo Contest Overview

Summer is here, and there is no better time to get out and be "one with nature". From birds and bees to mountains and trees, the Great Outdoors provides some of the most breathtaking and awe-inspiring photography subjects. For our Great Outdoors photo contest, we want to see how you capture the beauty of nature and the joy of summer.

We also have a video contest and a digital art contest that you can enter.

How to Enter
  1. Save your photo as a JPEG file no larger than 5MB.
  2. Click on the Enter tab on our Contest page.
  3. Enter your Name and Photo Title. You can also enter a description of your photo (which we love reading!) but that is optional.
  4. Upload your photo.
  5. Click on the Submit button.

And that’s it! We can’t wait to see your photos!

  2. By entering the contest you are giving us permission to use your photo for marketing and promotional purposes. Please see the full contest rules for how to revoke this permission.
  3. You must have permission from anyone in your photo to share their likeness publicly
