Judging:

The contest will begin April 1st and end April 30th. In that time the judges will review the many photos that you will be posting to instagram with the appropriate hashtag. There will be three main categories that you may be placed in with prizes for First, Second, and Third. Along with one grand winner. Announcements of the winners will be made one week after the contest with their photos and appropriate recognition. Judges will pick winners based off quality of the photo, the difficulty and skill needed to take it, when and where the photo was taken, and significance of the post. Multiple posts are accepted, but you can only win one prize.

 


InstameetupDay:

Point Reyes National Seashore Association will host a #InstaMeetUp day for all the participants of the contest on April 20th. We will spend the day hiking to cool scenic spots that you may or may not know about. Our staff will guide you around the park and interpret the surroundings for you. This event is not mandatory for any contestants, just a good chance to maybe get a leg up on the competition.
