Picture Yourself in State Parks

Picture Yourself in State Parks

This is Passport to Texas

On your next trip to a state park, bring the family, a camera and start snapping; then enter your best shot in Texas Parks and Wildlife’s state park photo contest.

03—The theme of it is “Picture Yourself in State Parks.”

Chase Fountain –photographer with Texas Parks and Wildlife – says judges want to see how you engage the outdoors.

12—Imagine taking a selfie, and you’re, for example, at Garner State Park. If you’re walking up “Old Baldy” and you have your hiking poles behind you, and you’re looking up…just taking a picture of yourself with that in the background says it all.

Photos don’t have to look professional. They just need to show you enjoying Texas state parks.

09—We are looking for families having a great time in state parks. Capture those wonderful moments and share them with us. And we’ll be happy to take a look at them – and maybe you might win!

Entries are being accepted now through April 15th. There are three categories.

19—One is 18 and over; and we’re having a 17 and under category for all you kids out there. And, of course, we’re doing an Instagram category as well. And in order to do the Instagram, you need to do #MyParkPick, and upload it. Whitney Bishop – our social media director over there – will take a look at them and get them ready for the contest.

Find rules and entry forms on the activities page of the TPW website. The person with the winning photo receives a Hero Edition Silver GoPro Camera.

For Texas Parks and Wildlife, I’m Cecilia Nasti.
