National Forest Foundation

Summer of Trails Photo Contest

Win Roundtrip Southwest Airlines Tickets and more!

Submit your National Forest Trail Photo Today!

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System Act, the National Forest Foundation is hosting a month-long photo contest: The Summer of Trails Photo Contest. The grand prize winner will receive two roundtrip Southwest Airline tickets and more. The NFF will award first through third place as well as up to three honorable mentions. 

Photos should feature trails on National Forests and Grasslands with or without people. Photos should also be at least 1-2 MB. We prefer photos without watermarks. Submissions will be judged on their quality of composition and whether or not they fit within the parameters of the contest. There is no limit to number of entries per person.

Photos must be submitted by 11:59 p.m., July 31, 2018.

Summer of Trails Crowdfunding Effort

In addition to holding a photo contest to celebrate the anniversary of the National Trails System Act, we're also fundraising to support National Forest trails. Through September, we invite Americans to support the largest trail system in the country with a donation that will be matched by the U.S. Forest Service. Learn more and donate now.
