Introducing our new photo contest with a $50 prize

We want to share your photos with other RVtravel.com readers every Saturday and Wednesday. The subject matter can be anything, as long as you took the photo and have the rights to use it where you wish. It can be beautiful scenery (with an RV in it, perhaps?), a funny sign, or a friend or family member posed in front of a famous landmark. Or maybe submit a selfie of you and a friend that is especially fun or interesting. Anything goes (as long as it’s G-rated, of course). Be sure to include a 20-40 word caption to accompany the photo.

Each weekend in our Saturday newsletter and each Wednesday in our RV Daily Tips newsletter (sign up for our newsletters here if you haven’t already!) we’ll post five photos from five different people. RVtravel.com readers can vote for their favorite, up to one time a day through the following evening at midnight — so that’s two chances to vote, one vote a day per individual. The photo with the most votes at the deadline (Pacific time) earns its photographer a $50 Amazon gift certificate!

So, check each Saturday and Wednesday to see if your photo appears and, if so, be sure to tell your friends and family to vote for it. Post the link of the contest page (along with your photo) to your Social Media accounts, too, and urge your friends and followers to share it with others. The more votes you get, the better your chances of winning!

Photos that make people smile are always good candidates to win!

CONTEST RULES:

  • Submit a maximum of one photo per week. You must have taken the photo and own its rights.
  • Each photo MUST include a 20-40 word description.
  • You can only win the contest every eight weeks.
  • If you break any rules, you’ll be banned from ever participating again.
  • Once you are declared the winner, we will send you an email notifying you. You’ll have 24 hours to respond in order to win. If you don’t respond by then, you’ll forfeit the prize and it will be awarded in the next contest.

Use the form below to upload your photo. Your name and email will only be used for the contest, nowhere else, but we’ll need both to contact you.

Okay, let’s have some fun!

Click or drag a file to this area to upload.

When I entered the Caption for my photo, it would not allow me to add a description. I didn’t see another place for it. Maybe Virginia is right — articles on both photography and technology may be i order! lol

Obviously some of us are recreational photographers and many are at the professional level.. Maybe some articles on taking good travel photos?

I do not think my picture uploaded. I could see it uploading last week. Perhaps I did something wrong, but I do not see where I could try it again.

It won’t even respond to click or drag a photo. I’ve tried 5 times and it won’t work. The words on this page look like they are double (like double vision).

Sorry you’re having problems, Linda. I don’t see anything wrong with the page, or with dragging a photo to the box. I wonder if it’s something on your device. I haven’t heard of anyone else having issues with it. Maybe clear the cache or something? Sorry I don’t know what to suggest (not techy at all). I’ll check with one of our IT folks to see if they have any suggestions. Have a great day. 🙂 –Diane

OK. Update for Linda. Our IT dude, Kim, says: “Clear your local browser files and try again. It’s always the place to start, regardless of device.” Good luck! –Diane

I’m not sure, cee. But I’m sending an email tomorrow (Sunday) to the folks who might be able to answer this for you. Good luck! Have a good night. 😀 –Diane

Shoot. Sorry, cee. No, I never heard back. I sent your question to them that Sunday, like I said I would. I’ve just written another email to them, and scheduled it to send in the morning since it’s late now. I’m letting them know that you’re still waiting for an answer. 😯 I’m sorry I forgot to follow up long before this, so I appreciate your reminder. I’ve also asked them if there is some way to set up an automatic response acknowledging when someone’s submission has been received. I hope they can do that so folks won’t wonder if it was received. Have a good night. 😀 –Diane

OK. I heard back this morning from our Special Projects Director (and contest person, among many other things), Jessica. She said they’ve turned the feature back on which will acknowledge receipt of an entry. Yay! Also, she informed me how/where to find the entries. I looked you up in there and yes, we received two identical (gorgeous!) entries from you within minutes of each other, so I deleted the second one. Have a great day, cee! 😀 -Diane

Have tried several times to submit a photo which I took and is in my photos file on computer shown as jpg. What do you think is the problem? And how do I make this happen? Thanks

I had a hard time this past week submitting my photo so I hope it only went once. I thought maybe file was to big so I tried another. It took a bit for all to work. Hope only went once since it was doing nothing it appeared.

I clicked on Submit and it didn’t do anything. I don’t know if my pic went through or not.

Sorry you’re having a problem, Joseph. Here’s some info from our IT dude, Kim, when he responded to someone earlier with a similar problem:

2 things can cause this kind of problem. 
1) You’re blocking some of our scripts that we need to make our website work. This can be a default setting in your browser (if you use Safari, Firefox, Brave or Opera) or it could be security software you have installed on your computer. So make sure that you’re allowing all cookies and scripts to run on rvtravel.com.
2) Our firewall decided that the situation was risky and blocked you. I checked our firewall log files and didn’t see anything that stood out linked to our forms pages. If you can google “What’s my IP” and send me the result I can narrow down my search a little more.

I hope that works for you. Have a great day. –Diane
