Katherine Hawkins of Hyde Park, N.Y., earned the grand prize in the 2012 Share the Experience photo contest, with a camper’s eye view of the Tetons chosen to grace the 2014 Federal Recreation Lands Pass.

 

Hawkins also won $15,000 and a Federal Recreational Lands Pass.

 

Second place went to Sue Cullumber of Chandler, Ariz., for her photo of Salt River at the Phon D Sutton Recreation Site on the Tonto National Forest. Third place went to Adam Jewell of Conshohocken, Pa., for his photo of Isle Royale National Park.

 

In the 2011 contest, Glen Maki of Wofford Heights, Calif., successfully captured the high-adrenaline moment as a kayaker maneuvered the waters at the Seven Teacups on the Sequoia National Forest. That photo was the first time a national forest was featured on the annual pass.

 

The annual contest encourages amateur photographers to explore the nation’s federal lands and share their experiences by capturing and submitting their favorite shots. More than 26,000 photos were submitted over the course of the 2012 contest. A complete list of 2012 winners and their photos are available to view at www.nationalparks.org/photowinners.

 

Deadline for the 2013 Share the Experience contest is Dec. 31.

 

Share the Experience is the official photo contest of America’s federal recreation lands. The 2012 contest was sponsored by the National Park Foundation, and Active Network in partnership with the National Park Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service , the U.S. Forest Service, and official media partner Destination America.

 

The contest entries showcase the more than 500 million acres of federal lands and draws entries from all across the United States.
