The June Sierra Club TRAILS photo contest is now open and the theme is “wild!” You won’t get lost if you join the Monthly Photo Contest on TRAILS and enter to win a SPOT II Satellite GPS Messenger plus 12 months basic and track progress service ($319.97 value). Individuals can enter their own original outdoor photos with a “Wild” theme or simply vote for favorites. The top five photos go to our judges who choose the Grand Prize Winner. The People’s Choice Winner is the photo with the most positive comments (however, no prize for this distinction). Deadline to enter is June 11. Deadline to vote is June 18th and winners will be announced June 30th. Photos in the gallery are archived by month. Start by going to the photo contest website: www.sierraclub.org/photos
