Prizes to be awarded include a $100 State Park Inns gift card for the highest vote-getter, and a 2018 annual pass, annual lake permit, horse permit or off-road cycling permit for the top 10 runners-up. There will also be a random drawing for winners of 20 one-day passes.
To participate take photos of spring wildflowers, spring scenic beauty or selfies of spring activities in the 32 Indiana State Parks or seven State Park Inns between now and May 12, the last day of Visit Indiana Week. See a list of eligible locations at StateParks.IN.gov/2392.htm.
Post photos on the Indiana State Parks Facebook page Facebook.com/INdnrstateparksandreservoirs or on Indiana State Parks Twitter feed @INDNRstateparks or the DNR Instagram feed @indianadnr.
Tag photos with #INStateParksSpringPix and include the location and date to help contest coordinators find them.
There is no limit on the number of entries per person.
Photos submitted should be natural photos of great spring stuff in Indiana state parks, taken without using filters that enhance or alter colors. Photos will be placed in albums on Facebook for two weeks of voting in late May.
Winners will be based on the number of likes in the albums, and there are no limits on the number of images a person can vote for.
The DNR may use photos entered in the contest on social media or in other locations in the future.
