“I Wish I Was There!” Photo Contest at The Clymb

The dead­line to sub­mit your pho­tos into our “I Wish I Was There” con­test has passed and all sub­mis­sions are now avail­able for view­ing on our Face­book page. We want to give a sin­cere thank you to all the entrants. This began as a fun Face­book con­test, but it has evolved into a tru­ly inspi­ra­tional expe­ri­ence with oth­er mem­bers and Face­book fans in absolute awe of all the adven­tures you’ve embarked on. We are hon­ored that you shared these mem­o­ries with us.

We received an unprece­dent­ed num­ber of entries and we had to lim­it each per­son to 2–3 pho­tographs per cat­e­go­ry. It seems a shame to pit them against each oth­er, yet we must. Here’s how we’ll do it:

Over the next few days our team at The Clymb will nar­row down each cat­e­go­ry (action and land­scape) to ten final­ists. We’ll then put the pow­er in your hands, allow­ing you to vote on the pho­to in each cat­e­go­ry that you find the most breath­tak­ing, the pho­to that most makes you say, “I wish I was there!”

When the vot­ing peri­od ends, the pho­to in each cat­e­go­ry with the most votes will win $50 to The Clymb. That’s right: We’ve increased the prize amount. We had to; those pho­tos are stunning!

In the mean­time, we encour­age you to peruse each fold­er on our Face­book wall and take in all the beau­ty. If you have a pho­to in the run­ning, please feel free to com­ment on it with fur­ther details. We’d love to hear the sto­ry behind such fas­ci­nat­ing pics.
