NEWTOWN, Conn. — October’s theme in the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Facebook Photo Contest is “Post your favorite photo with at least one individual wearing hunter-orange clothing.”
To post a photo, look for the Contests tab on NSSF’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/NSSFcomm.
NSSF launched the contest in celebration of its 50th Anniversary this year. The hunter-orange theme was selected to pay tribute to one of NSSF’s early nationwide education efforts: to promote the use of hunter-orange clothing for certain types of hunting.
The top prize each month is a $50 gift card to Cabela’s, plus a copy of NSSF’s official anniversary history publication and commemorative coin. Nine other prize winners will receive the history publication and coin. The contest runs through the end of the year, with a new theme introduced each month.
Entrants may post photos during the first three weeks of each month, with the last week devoted to voting for the winners. To post a photo, an individual must first “Like” the NSSF Facebook page, which has more than 9,000 fans.
Individuals may post as many photos as they like each month and during the course of the contest. People who post photographs can vote for their own photos and may want to encourage others to vote for their photos by using social media tools, whether it’s contacting their friends on Facebook or through postings on Twitter, LinkedIn and other social networking sites.
Click on the Contests tab at www.facebook.com/NSSFcomm to read the full contest rules, which include eligibility and how to enter and vote.
