Death Valley National Park Announces “#HikeDeathValleyArt” Contest
DEATH VALLEY, CALIF.—Death Valley National Park invites artists and photographers to participate in an art contest for the Hike Death Valley program.
Hike Death Valley encourages park visitors to get out on the trails by earning points for each featured hike completed. Upon earning four points, visitors are eligible to receive a free commemorative decal by sharing their photos with a park ranger and learning how to share their experience online. Each year, a different group of hikes and a new version of the collectable decal are featured.
Two categories of artwork are included in the contest—a decal design and a promotional poster design. Participants may share their entries by using #HikeDeathValleyArt via park social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, or by email @ firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line #HikeDeathValleyArt.
Winning artwork will be featured on the decal and promotional poster, and winners will be awarded an Interagency Annual Pass that covers admission to national parks, wildlife refuges, national forests and other federal recreation areas for one year. Second place winners will receive a $50 gift certificate for Death Valley Natural History Association bookstores. Prizes are complements of Death Valley Natural History Association.
The deadline for submissions is July 31, 2016. Contest details are available at nps.gov.deva.
