This year’s popular ‘Share the Experience’ Photo Contest is accepting entries through Dec. 31, 2015.
If you’re an amateur photographer, this is a great chance to get your photos seen by millions of people simply by submitting inspiring images of America’s federal lands, national parks, forests, waterways and historical sites … and, maybe earn a little money for your efforts. The 2015 contest features more than $30,000 in prizes and, best of all, it will determine the pass image for the 2017 ‘America the Beautiful’ National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass.
‘Share the Experience’ showcases amazing photography that highlights the endless recreation opportunities and breathtaking scenery offered by America’s federal lands. In 2014 more than 21,000 images were submitted.
