What You’ve All Been Waiting / Clicking / Snapping for—The Employee Photo Contest

With so much to do and see each summer in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, there’s just not enough time to experience everything.  Luckily for us the Employee Photo Contest allows us to see the GYE through many eyes.  Grizzly cubs playing on Mount Washburn, wranglers laughing at the Roosevelt corrals, early morning mist rising off the Firehole—Yellowstone employees capture amazing moments.  Share your photographic artistry and your summer experiences by entering the photo contest.  The five categories are Landscape, Close-Up, Wildlife, People, and Humorous. The top three finishers in each category will be awarded $50, $30, and $20, respectively, and have their winning photos displayed with full credits on the YCERP webpage.  For details and entry forms stop into your location employee recreation office.
All entries must be submitted by 5:00 pm, Monday, August 11th.  Photo contest judging will be held in employee recreation halls on August 19th, 20th, and 21st in tandem with Winter Job Fairs hosted by Xanterra.
