Pictures you have taken (or are going to take) in our National Parks and on other federal recreation lands can be entered in Share the Experience, the official photo contest of our federal land management agencies. These include the Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and U.S. Forest Service. Here in Nevada, you can visit recreation areas administered by each agency in this list.
Pictures must have been taken between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2014. Contest entries are accepted from May 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014, with winners announced by May 1, 2015. The Share the Experience website has a link to the official guidelines and rules for entering the contest.
The grand prize is $10,000, a pair of Celestron binoculars, a Celestron Trek Guide, an annual federal lands recreation pass, and the winning photo on the 2016 Federal Recreation Lands Pass. Prizes will also be awarded to second and third places, plus 8 honorable mentions.
