This week we launch a photo contest with ECCO, including a grand prize trip to Canyonlands National Park with Moab-based Deep Desert Expeditions. In addition, 29 gear prizes — including the premium ECCO BIOM Hike 1.1 and BIOM Terrain Plus footwear — will be awarded. 30 readers in all will win!
‘Take A Hike’ Photo Contest — The Rules: Send us your best hiking, scrambling, peak-bagging, or trail running images. We’ll display the image on the site and will judge based on quality, originality, fun, humor, and the overall “I-wanna-go-there” factor of your photo.
To Submit: Email your photos here. (mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if the link doesn’t work on your system). Include a one-sentence description + click the “Like” button on this page to share the contest with your Facebook friends.
Photo Rights: You keep all rights. Submitting an image gives GearJunkie and ECCO the option to display the images on a blog post or social media. Full contest rules are here.
The Prizes: 30 prizes in all, including the custom adventure trip with Deep Desert Expeditions, which is an immersive 3 – 4 day backcountry adventure in Canyonlands National Park, Utah. Goal Zero, Suunto, Wigwam Socks, and (of course) ECCO will provide 29 additional prizes for readers.
Deadline: Submit your photos here starting today. Final submissions must be made by November 15, 2013. Good luck!
