Judging and Prizes
Photographs will be judged on originality, artistic and technical merit, and their portrayal of BearVault products. The winning photograph as well as honorable mentions will remain posted on our website for at least one year. There will be one winner, who will receive a brand new BV500, shipped to your home filled with a variety of camp foods – a total value of $300.
We support the principles of “Leave No Trace“. Respect wildlife and do not approach or invite encounters with people or man-made items, including your BearVault, food, or waste. Any photographs that appear to violate Leave No Trace principles will be disqualified.
Photographs should be in original resolution, and unmodified. We require a release (sent by email) for any people who are identifiable (faces clearly visible) in the pictures, prior to the submission being accepted into the contest.
All submissions are subject to initial approval, entirely at the discretion of BearVault, for adherence to the guidelines, rules, and goals of the contest. All approved photographs will be displayed on our website at least until the close of the contest, but may be displayed longer.
We collect some of your personal information for the purposes of this contest and communications about your experience with BearVault. We do not share your personal information with others.
You may choose whether or not you would like the photo credited with your name when displayed or used.
