Third-place winners each will receive a $25 gift card to the Trailspace retail partner of their choice. Second-place winners each will receive a $50 gift card. Two first-place winners each will receive a $75 gift card, with the top photo overall receiving a $100 gift card. All winners will receive a Trailspace hat.
