#inthewildhood - The Last Chance Edition

10 weeks ago we launched our #inthewildhood summer photo contest. To say it was something of a last-minute substitution would be an understatement.

We'd been planning our Great Outdoor Scavenger Hunt for a year, but then, well... you know, COVID.  And as needs must, #inthewildhood was born. We could not possibly be more astounded by how much the contest has resonated with the public.

As we head into our final weekend for submissions, the 6200 individual photos entered by our readers have been viewed almost 34,000 times! That's an average of 85 entries and 470 views per day since the contest began. Wow!

Each time we browse through the gallery, which is available for public viewing until September 15th, we ooh and aah over the creepy, ethereal, awe-inspiring and humorous photos. Go take a look, we're sure you will too.

And there's still time to enter. Your photo could be featured on the blog or in social media posts, as so many others have been all summer long. Don't miss your shot — you only have to grab your camera and get outside to take it.
