As RVers we take photos to document our travels. And because we travel to some beautiful places, we sometimes take some beautiful photographs. If you have a few photos you think are extra beatiful here’s an opportunity to show them off and maybe win a prize.
The Department of the Interior announced the start of the 2013 “Share the Experience” contest, giving amateur photographers the chance to join the ranks of Ansel Adams, Thomas Moran, and others who have found recognition for their photographs of the nation’s public lands.
The “Share the Experience” photo contest showcases our nation’s public lands, including national parks, wildlife refuges, forests and recreation areas – and draws entries from all across the United States. It is the largest national park and public land photo contest for amateur photographers.
“Photography has the power to make the great outdoors accessible so that we all can see some of the most beautiful places in the world through the eyes of people like Ansel Adams,” said Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell. “This is a fun competition that helps strengthen the connection between Americans and their public lands, and I look forward to seeing the submissions from across the country.”
This year, a new Let’s Move Outside! photo category will encourage families to explore the outdoors and lead active lifestyles. Let’s Move Outside! is part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative to raise a healthier generation of kids.
The winning photograph will appear on the 2015 America the Beautiful pass for entrance to 2,000 federal recreation sites, including national parks, national wildlife refuges, and national forests. All entries have the chance to be featured on the Interior Department’s popular Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts.
Prizes provided by the National Park Foundation, Active Network, Air Wick and Historic Hotels of America include a $15,000 cash prize, a Columbia backpack, a pass to the national parks and other federal lands, and other items for the grand prize winner. Second and third place winners, as well as 7 Honorable Mention winners, will also receive prizes.
The “Share the Experience” begins May 10, 2013 and runs through December 31, 2013. Amateur photographers can participate by uploading photos on www.sharetheexperience.org.
“Share the Experience” is sponsored by Active Network, Air Wick, Historic Hotels of America and the National Park Foundation in partnership with the National Park Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S. Forest Service.

Cinematographer John Holod will present a program of highlights of his RV adventure films to attendees of this week’s 45th Annual Chicago Camping and RV Show, kicking off Wednesday (Feb. 13) at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont.
Holod has traveled the world producing travelogues, but in recent years has focused on travel by recreational vehicle, with productions on most regions of North America. Highlights from his most popular series of DVDs, which spotlight RV travel to and in Alaska, will be included in his Chicago program.
The veteran filmmaker released his newest DVD last month, “Route 66 RV Adventure.” Holod will debut highlights of that production at the Chicago show, its first major audience of RV enthusiasts.
“Driving Route 66 is right up there with the Alaska Highway on most RVers’ bucket lists,” said Holod. “Many RVers — if not most — do not realize that about 80% of the old highway is still there and can be easily driven with any RV. The film is especially relevant to the Chicago audience because that’s where Route 66 began on way west to Santa Monica, Calif.”
Watch a 3-minute preview of John Holod’s “Route 66 RV Adventure.”
Holod’s programs will begin at the top of the hour throughout the show. More information about his productions, all of which are available on DVD, is available at Holod’s website RVadventureVideos.com.
