AMC Photo Contest - View Entries

Participants submitted up to three photos in each of the first four categories below (My AMC, People Outdoors, Landscapes and Nature, Recreation Close to Home) and could designate one of their entries for the People’s Choice contest as well:

  • My AMC
    What does AMC membership mean to you? Group hiking, paddling, or cycling trips? Learning new outdoor skills? Volunteering? Visiting a lodge or a hut? Show us your AMC.
  • People Outdoors
    Can you capture the joy of being outside? Here’s your chance to spotlight family, friends, and fellow explorers engaged in all manner of outdoor activities.
  • Landscapes and Nature
    The natural splendor of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic comes in many forms: mountain vistas, sunsets, foliage, flowers, streams, and wildlife. Share the views that inspire you.
  • Recreation Close to Home
    Savoring the outdoors doesn’t require remote wilderness. AMC members find adventures in parks, preserves, and bike paths near them. Show off your own favorite spots within your chapter’s region.
  • People’s Choice
    Designate one of your photos for this category, and we’ll include it in a special People’s Choice runoff, with voting taking place in November at outdoors.org.

One grand-prize winner, selected by a panel of professional photographers, will receive a free stay at an AMC full-service lodge. The first-place winner in each category, chosen by the judges, and the People’s Choice winner will receive outdoor gear prizes donated by Deuter, ENO, Forty Below, LEKI, and LifeStraw.
