Backroads invites past and present guests to submit digital photographs of their Backroads trip(s) for the annual photo contest. View tips & specs.
There are five Grand Prize winners for the photo contest: 1st place wins $5,000 in trip credit, 2nd place wins $4,000 in trip credit, 3rd place wins $3,000 in trip credit, 4th place wins $2,000 in trip credit and 5th place wins $1,000 in trip credit. You can redeem your trip credit immediately by calling one of our Trip Consultants and booking your next trip. Credit is applicable to any Backroads trip of your choosing and will never expire.
In addition to the five Grand Prize winners, Backroads may choose to use additional photo contest entries in our publications or on our website at any time during the year. Photographers will be reimbursed $250 in trip credit by Backroads for purchase and all future use of that image. Trip credit is applicable to any Backroads trip and will never expire.
Each guest may submit a maximum of 25 photos per trip. You may submit photos from more than one trip, from any past trip. Photos must be in JPEG format. Contest winners are chosen annually. Submissions for the 2018 contest are due by December 31, 2018. Winners will be notified by February 14, 2019. (Submissions arriving after December 31, 2018, will automatically be entered in the 2019 contest.)
