Do you ever do things and then completely forget you did it? Like while I was traveling in September I picked up a flyer about a photo contest of the Rainbow Bridge National Monument and when I got home at the very last minute I sent in an entry. The winner of that would get their photo on a poster to commerate the centennial of the Monument and a free boat trip to the monument...second place would be featured on centennial exhibits and third place would receive a Rainbow Bridge hat & shirt, fourth place a gift certificate from the Colorado River Discovery Store. So I won Third Place!!
Initial judging was done by the National Parks Service staff, and finalists were judged by a panel of independent photographers based on the following criteria--Overall compostion, quality, originality, and creativity.
Mr. King told me that all the photos will be posted on the Official Rainbow Bridge Website and each winner will receive a certificate as well....I was just thrilled to even be involved--let alone be sent a prize!! Im honored to be a part of the upcoming centennial of such a beautiful spot.
Here is a link to the website, hope ya'll get a chance to check it out:
