Bring your camera and explore the park to get the perfect shot and submit your photo for a chance to win! Along with recognition, the winner will be awarded two, day entry passes good for Florida’s 174 award-winning state parks, trails and historic sites, up to 8 people for most parks. Monthly first-place winners are also automatically entered to win a grand prize at the end of the 2017 Photo Contest term.
