Tips for good entries

Try to use fun images that encompass scouts.

Sunsets are pretty but very repetitive. Try to use photos that have interesting compositions or subjects. Using the sun as the primary subject of a photo just ain’t cutting it. 

Look for action! Portaging, cooking, catching ish and paddling are all exciting in the backcountry so try to document it as best you can!
