8th Annual Photo Competition: Rules & Regulations

Did you snap a photo of some breathtaking vistas? Capture hilarious moments of your travel buddies on the ground? Get a shot of something so extraordinary no one would believe it happened otherwise? Share photos of your travels with our community of backpacktivists and you could win $1000 credit off of the 2019-20 program of your choice (transferable to family and friends)! That’s truly nuts, because $1000 could cover up to 70% of your program fee 🙂  

So how does it work?

  1. Submit up to three (3)  high resolution photos to photos@operationgroundswell.com by October 16 at 5pm. Add a short caption (up to 100 words) to go with it.
  2. Voting opens up on our Facebook page the next day, October 17. For a vote to count, your friends and family must like our page, then like your photo.
  3. The photo with the most likes by 11:59 p.m. on October 31st is the grand prize winner!
  4. Winner will be announced on November 1st on our Facebook page and right here on our blog.
 

What are the prizes?

  • 2nd Place: $500 credit on any OG program until September 1, 2020
