Share the Experience Photo Contest Launches

Bug spray? Check. Tent? Check.
Sleeping bag? Check. Sunblock? Check. Camera to capture an amazing photo of your experience in one of our nation’s parks, forests and recreational lands? Absolutely!

If you’re getting outdoors this summer, triple check your gear list so that you don’t forget your camera! Today, alongside the National Park Foundation and several other partners, we kicked off the annual Share the Experience photo contest where you can submit pictures taken at any federal lands site for the chance to win great prizes and have your image selected for use on the America the Beautiful Federal Recreation Lands Pass. Roughly 500,000 passes are issued each year, so your photo will be enjoyed by tons of outdoors enthusiasts across the nation!

Active Network and the National Park Foundation will manage the photo contest on behalf of the National Park Service and other participating federal agencies. Active Network is also sponsoring the three top prizes, including a $15,000 grand prize.

On average, the contest receives approximately 14,000 submissions from all across the country each year. There are more than 500 million acres of Federal Lands in the US, so get outdoors this summer and start clicking!
