If you’ve spent any time in Wyoming’s wide open-spaces, you know how it excites the senses: the song of a meadowlark darting over mountain wildflowers in summer; the smell of sagebrush freshly washed by an afternoon rain in spring; the shifting shadows on a distant snow-laced hilltop in winter.

If you’re like us, these moments probably compelled you to snap a photo — or a few dozen — including that one shot you keep returning to and remember fondly. We want to see these glimpses of your Wyoming and learn how your experiences in Wyoming’s open spaces helped define your past year? Was it a nighttime shot of stars draped over a mountain skyline, or a moment with your best friend on a hike? Share these Wyoming images and stories with us in our annual calendar contest. After reviewing all of the submissions in the fall, we’ll choose our favorites for the Wyoming Outdoor Council calendar.


This year, we’ll again offer you the chance to enter your photos through Instagram or email. To submit your photo(s) via Instagram, you must have a public Instagram account so that we’re able to view your submission. Upload your photo(s) and add the hashtag #MyWyoming.

To submit your photo(s) via email, send your photo(s) to claire@wyomingoutdoorcouncil.org.


Entries must be submitted between July 15, 2018, and before midnight on September 15, 2018, either via email (claire@wyomingoutdoorcouncil.org) or Instagram, using the hashtag #MyWyoming. By entering, all contestants agree to release their photo to the Wyoming Outdoor Council for publication purposes. The Wyoming Outdoor Council will select the winning photos, which will then be used in the Outdoor Council’s 2019 calendar. All submitted photos are subject to use.

Your entry to the contest constitutes your agreement to allow your entered photographs, as well as your name and the place the photograph was taken, to be published in the Wyoming Outdoor Council’s 2019 calendar and on the Wyoming Outdoor Council’s website to promote the annual photo contest.

Photograph entries constitute permission to use the images in this manner with credit to the photographer without monetary compensation. Contest entrants retain ownership and all other rights to future use of the photographs they enter. Use of the entered photos in any other fashion or in any other publications will only occur with permission from the entrant.
