The Mission Trails Regional Park Foundation’s annual photo contest is back from a two-year hiatus, and we have some exciting news to share! This year, we will be accepting photo submissions online OR you may print and mount your entry (for details on printed entries, see item #6 in the rules). By offering the online entry option and waiving entry fees, our hope is to receive even more exceptional photos that capture the park’s beautiful, sweeping landscapes and intimate details.

If submitting your entry online, simply fill out the form below and upload the highest resolution of the image you would like to enter.

Approximately 180-200 photos will be chosen to be printed and displayed in the Visitor Center. The selected online entry printing will be facilitated and paid for by the MTRP Foundation. The award winners will be among those on view, and the winners will be announced at a reception at the MTRP Visitor Center on June 5, 2022 from 2-4PM. If your photo is chosen to be displayed, you will be notified via email by May 1.

Selected entries will be on view at the Mission Trails Regional Park Visitor and Interpretive Center from May 7 to June 17, 2022. Contest entries accepted March 1- April 1, 2022.
