Come spend a night in the heart of the Sierra just outside Yosemite National Park at Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging.

Got a Great Photo? Win a Night in Yosemite

| December 21, 2007

Grab your cameras and your photo collections shutterbugs Tom over at has something really cool going on, a photography contest. New year, resolve to win the Yosemite Explorer New Year’s Photography Contest! Round up your best two Yosemite pictures and send ’em in. You could win a night at Tenaya Lodge (something like a $330 value I think).

Why this contest? Why that prize?
Last year I won the end of the season ski race and the prize was a fully transferable gift certificate for a free night at Tenaya Lodge, a luxury hotel on the southern border of Yosemite National Park.

I have no interest in staying in a hotel so close to home, and every time I offer it to a friend or family, they always prefer to stay with us. Now the expiration is approaching (voucher expires April 27, 2008). So I started thinking. It happens sometimes. In this particular case, I was thinking I might sell it on EBay, then I thought a photo contest would be much more fun. Then for the past couple of months I keep saying I’ll announce it as soon as I get the site fixed up to take submissions. That’s not going to happen, I realized, so submissions will be via email (see below) and I’ll just post them manually. I’m hoping this will be fun, that I’ll get a handfull of submissions (but not a huge flood) and it will be a good chance for an amateur photographer who loves Yosemite to win a contest.

    Just an update. I’ve got a few submissions and if you simply want to see what’s getting posted, rather than read through the contest guidelines, you can go straight to the contest photo gallery
