Curator's Choice: #NewTerritoryCo Instagram Contest

Contemporary landscape photography from around the world is surveyed in the Denver Art Museum’s summer exhibition New Territory: Landscape Photography Today. The exhibition reflects on the environmental attitudes, perceptions, and values of our time through “observed” and “constructed” landscape imagery.

We challenge you to capture the essence of New Territory through a single photograph. The museum’s photography department will review submissions to select the top 10 photographs. The top 10 submissions will win great prizes from Mike’s Camera.

How to enter the #NewTerritoryCO contest

1. Take or create a landscape photo that captures the spirit of the New Territory exhibition.

2. Upload it to Instagram between June 27 and August 9. Hashtag it with #NewTerritoryCO, tag @denverartmuseum @mymikescamera, and make sure your Instagram profile is set to public to officially enter. Share a story with your image that describes your image and photo process.

The top 10 photography submissions will be announced August 23 via this blog and on the museum’s Instagram, Twitter and Facebook social media channels.

How the winner is selected

Members of the Denver Art Museum photography department will review all of the entries. Based on their expert knowledge of the genre and image caption, they will decide on the top 10 submissions and top photo submission.

What you win- 10 prizes in all!

One Grand Prize winner will be awarded a Nikon D5600 Digital SLR with 18-55 VR Lens, a Mike’s Camera Perfect Picture Pak and a $100 Mike’s Camera Gift Card!
