Limit 25 photos and/or 10 videos per guest per trip. Should Backroads choose to use a photo/video in a print publication, DVD, video, e-mail or on our website (excluding the voting page and our social media), $250 in Backroads trip credit will be awarded to you (the "Photographer/Videographer"). Trip credit is applicable to any future Backroads trip and has no expiration date. The Photographer/Videographer will be notified of use by e-mail after the publication has been printed or the photo/video posted online. Backroads retains the right to use any photo/video submitted at any time in the future. Once the Photographer/Videographer is compensated for a photo/video, Backroads retains the right to reuse it at will, for all time, for no additional payment.

Submissions arriving after December 31, 2015 will automatically be entered in the 2016 contests. There are three Grand Prize winners in both contests: 1st place wins $3,000 in trip credit, 2nd place wins $2,000 in trip credit and 3rd place wins $1,000 in trip credit. Trip credit is automatically applied to the winner's account and is redeemable immediately. Trip credit is applicable to any Backroads trip and has no expiration date. Backroads retains the right to use any photo/video submitted at any time in the future.
