Take your best shot in our "Discover True-Blue Texas" Flickr Photo Contest

Do you like to take pictures of friends and family having fun? Have we got a deal for you! LCRA's Colorado River Trail invites you to enter our photo contest - the "Discover True-Blue Texas" Flickr Photo Contest. Share your best photos of people enjoying the fun things to do on the Colorado River Trail, and get a chance to win exciting prizes.

Entering the contest is easy! Starting April 5 enter through Flickr, and online photo-sharing service, and add your contest entries to the Colorado River Trail group. Enter as many photos as you like. Remember that we want action! Photos should show people doing something. The possibilities are endless: fishing, kayaking, hiking, cycling, shopping, eating out and more.

Contest Deadline: April 30, 2010

Here's How To Enter:

  1. Visit - For more information about the contest, rules, judging and some FAQs, visit the "Discover True-Blue Texas" Flickr Photo Contest Web page. You'll be glad you did.
  2. Log on - To submit your photos via Flickr, use your Yahoo ID. If you don't have a Flickr or Yahoo account, that's okay. You can sign up for a Flickr account for free.
  3. Upload your photos - Once you have logged on, upload the photos you want to enter in the contest to your account. Do this by clicking on the blue letters that say "upload photos and videos" and follow the prompts.
  4. Join the Colorado River Trail group - If you aren't already a member, join by clicking "Join this Group" on the group's homepage.
  5. Send your entry to the group - From your photo stream, select the photo you wish to enter int he contest. Use the "Send to Group" function above the image to add your photo to the Colorado River Trail photo pool.
  6. Tag it! - Once added to the group, tag each photo with CRTContest using the "tag" feature in the right-hand column of the individual photo's page. This identifies your photo as a contest entry and distinguishes it from existing photos in the group. Also tag each photo with the location of where the picture was taken so we can ensure that it is in one of the 11 counties of the Colorado River Trail region.

You be the Judge. The five finalists will be selected by our judging team during the first week of May 2010. The you will have the chance to vote on your favorite to help us choose the grand prize winner. Voting will be open for one week (May 10-16). The grand prize winner will be announced no later than May 17.

The grand prize winner will receive a Light O' the Moon Float Trip on the beautiful Colorado River, courtesy of LCRA's McKinney Roughs Nature Park. Prizes will also be awarded for second- through fifth-place winners.
