Contest — Hidden Gems of Southern Utah
Hidden Gems of Southern Utah
Sponsored by Cedar City/Brian Head Tourism Bureau
& Alive! Utah
It’s obvious, we love Southern Utah here at Alive! Utah. We especially love its sweeping vistas, hidden waterfalls, rugged trails, sunsets, mountain glades and breathtaking views. So we are ready to reward some adventurous photographers in our First Annual Hidden Gems Photo contest. Photo contest opens on April 7th, 2012 and closes on June 7th 2012.
We are looking for scenery photos in this contest. Whether they are sweeping vistas or close-up macro photography they should reflect our theme — Hidden Gems of Southern Utah. We want to see your view on Southern Utah and we are looking to see the hidden nooks and crannies of a slot canyon or the way the shadow dances across the plateaus and cliffs found in our valleys and mountains. We have some of the most varied and vast topography and scenery in the world – well we think so anyway. Show it to us.
A few hints; Pay attention these are important.
Think outside the Zion Narrows.
OK we love the Narrows and we want to see those amazing photos too. But make sure you don’t show us the same stuff we have already seen in a thousand other photos. Reveal Southern Utah.
At least one of our top prizes will be of Iron County. The sponsor’s choice photo prize is for an Iron County photo.
We only accept photos digitally. So please don’t send us the hard copy. We are an online magazine and that is how we roll. See our official submission rules.
