LEKI Launches “Find Your Place” Online Photo Contest


BUFFALO, NY – LEKI announces the launch of the “Find Your Place” online photo contest, celebrating individual outdoor experiences regardless of how big or small, or how far away or close to home, they are. From epic treks to muddy trail runs to weekend beach getaways, LEKI acknowledges that each and every outdoor adventure should be applauded.

The contest runs through May 31, 2016, and the winning submission – chosen by LEKI representatives with encouragement from LEKI fans – will receive $1,000 in LEKI gear. Second and third place will receive $500 and $250, respectively, worth of LEKI gear. To enter, fans are encouraged to submit photos via LEKI’s Facebook or Instagram page of their favorite place to be outdoors: whether it be in the mountains; on the lake; by the ocean; or in your own backyard. Extra consideration will be given to those who include LEKI gear (poles, gloves or folding chairs) in the photos. The contest page can be found at http://us.leki.com/fyp/

“We all have a special place in the outdoors that inspires us and keeps us coming back for more. LEKI’s ‘Find Your Place’ photo contest encourages fans to capture the beauty of their special place and share it with others,” said Greg Wozer, VP of LEKI USA.

LEKI recently debuted their new folding chairs, the Chiller and the Breeze. The progression into folding chairs for LEKI is a natural one, since the same German technology that is behind their poles now also stands behind their chairs. LEKI championed the term “Find Your Place” in conjunction with their folding chair launch, since the chairs are easily packable and can be taken virtually anywhere.
