Contest Rules

A Path in the Woods PhotographyPLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE SUBMITTING!!!

**This contest is sponsored by the Go Take a Hike Photography Group; any images submitted should represent things that one may find out on the trail, in a natural setting – unless contest rules specifically allow exceptions.**

Contest Logo: Almost a Rainforest – a trail through the forest in Glacier National Park, Montana USA.


Show us any natural scene in the woods or a forest where a footpath has been worn, following these rules:


1. Photography Only. No digital alterations, digital painting, mixed media, selective color, false backgrounds, added graphics or text allowed.


2. Your photo must show a clear and obvious trail (footpath, not road) through nothing but woods/forest. Your trail must be a naturally worn footpath – no gravel, sidewalks, boardwalks, or pavement is allowed. Also, no broad landscapes, open terrain, fields, open sky, and certainly no buildings…just a trail through the trees IN THE WOODS! See contest logo for an example.


3. Your images must be of natural scenes found within a natural environment. Scenes captured in yards, gardens, marinas, neighborhoods, or built-up areas are NOT allowed. People, pets/domestic/captive animals, dead animals, or man-made objects (to include dirt roads and vehicle trails) are NOT allowed.


4. As always, there is ABSOLUTELY NO VOTER SOLICITATION ALLOWED in any Go Take a Hike Photo Group contest. Please allow your images to speak for themselves! Also, no position-bumping. If you submit images, then leave them where they are. Pulling and resubmitting to get your images to the front will result in your images being removed.



I reserve the right to remove any photos which do not meet the contest parameters. I look forward to seeing everybody’s work!
