2017 Photo Contest

On January 1, 2017 Trakkers will once again launch our annual photo contest. This year Trakkers members have a chance to win one of four $50 MEC gift cards. Four themes have been chosen to inspire your photography. A prize will be rewarded to the winning photo for each theme. Keep the themes in mind throughout the entire season; you may want to snap a photo in advance for a future week's theme. Interpret the themes as you wish and let your creativity soar!

To enter members may post one photo with the theme title each week to the Visitor Posts on our Facebook page.

Trakkers members and their Facebook friends will choose the winning photo for each theme by voting with a "like" on our Visitors Page. The winning photo will be chosen based on the most number of “likes” accumulated between the opening and closing dates for each theme. All Trakkers members are encouraged to "like" as many photos as they choose for each theme.

To be eligible, the photo must be taken on a Trakkers trip and posted by a Trakkers club member within the timelines specified. A Trakkers member can only win one time per season. The winning photo of the week will be announced on the Sunday Bus Trip and on the Trakkers' Facebook page.

The entry deadlines, rules and weekly prize schedule are as follows:
