If you were in or around the Scotchman Peaks sometime since November 1 of 2016, and you took a picture you think is really cool, attach it to an e-mail, tell us where you took it, when you took it, and maybe even why you took it and send the whole kit and caboodle to sandy@scotchmanpeaks.org. High-resolution (2-megabyte or higher in jpeg format) are preferred. Pictures should have been taken within the wilderness or of the wilderness from outside (pictures taken within the wilderness are preferred.)

We take submissions all year long, beginning now. An individual can submit up to six photos, of which FSPW staff will choose what they consider the best of the bunch. We will then put those chosen up in a Facebook album after the contest closes on Halloween, 2017.

Second runnerup Ken Vanden Heuvel was camped at Horseshoe Lake on July 4 when he took this.

The final pictures will be judged by that highly qualified panel of Facebook Friends of Scotchman Peaks, who will vote with their “likes” on pictures posted in a special album. Ties will be decided by FSPW staff.

Prizes: Top three photo takers will be awarded a swag package from FSPW including a hat, bandana and t-shirt.

The grand prize: Your picture professionally framed by Ward Tolbom of Hen’s Tooth Studios in Sandpoint. Ward is an expert framer, as well as a renowned water color artists and huckleberry picker.

The way to win: Send those pictures in and invite your friends to vote for your photo(s) on the Scotchman Peaks Facebook page!
