Adults may submit one photo to the category of their choosing: Plants, Animals, Landscapes, or People. Teens and children 12 and younger can submit one photo to an open category in their age group.

This contest is for amateur/non-professional photographers only. Photos must be taken within Mission Trails Regional Park from an authorized trail and have MTRP as their subject.

The entries will be scored by our judges, then selected entries will be printed and on view at the Visitor Center from May 6 – June 16, 2023. Photos that have been printed will be given to the photographer at the end of the show. All qualifying entries will be featured on the MTRP website beginning on May 6, 2023.
