Sixth Annual GayOutdoors Photo Contest Underway

By Mike Boisvert.

GayOutdoors invites all men to enter your stunning outdoor images in our sixth annual photography competition.

For the sixth year in a row, we're looking for your best outdoor adventure shots that would look great in a gay outdoors calendar. Your own original digital images of the outdoors comes in many subjects such as mountain vistas, sunsets, foliage, flowers, and wildlife. Capturing guys in the great outdoors is also great provided they are ACTION shots. (Do not include nude photos or photos of pets/domestic animals).  

How To Enter

Each contestant will submit five photos to form their collection. You must submit five photos to qualify. Make sure we are able to download your photos on Flickr if you've disabled this ability; otherwise you'll be disqualified.  

To enter your images, upload your photos to the GayOutdoors Flickr Group.   Not familiar with Flickr? Find out more about this easy way to enter way down below.

The Prize

Our judges will select 10-20 finalists. We'll then post the collections from our finalists in the order we received them at our website starting from "1" to "?" and then turn the voting over to our members. We'll then post the final tally by posting the collections with the least votes first and counting down to the number one finisher. The top place finisher will receive $50, be recognized on our website and get bragging rights.  

The Fine Print

Photo submissions must be uploaded or received by 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time on October 22, 2012. By entering the contest, you hereby grant to GayOutdoors a non exclusive, worldwide, irrevocable, royalty-free license to reproduce, distribute, and publicly display the photographs you submit to GayOutdoors. And good luck!
