2018 Photo Contest Winners

National Park Trips Media received 3,000 spectacular photo entries to the 8th Annual National Park Photo Contest presented by Tamron. It was a difficult task because of the high quality of entries, but the judges have selected the winners. 

The top photographer in each of three categories is awarded their choice of Tamron lenses, the Tamron SP 15-30MM F/2.8 Di VC USD ($1,299 value) or Tamron SP 150-600MM F/5-6.3 Di VC USD ($1,069 value). Their photos will also be featured in National Park Journal magazines hitting news stands in late fall through spring. 

In addition, 30 honorable mention winners receive certificates and are featured on our national park websites.
