Focus on Joshua Tree Photo Contest


We are introducing a summer photo contest for Facebook and Instagram. In the months leading up to the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act, we want to see Joshua Tree National Park from your eyes. Photos are your unique expression of an experience, and we want to share them.  Focus on JT

The contest begins on July 1, 2014 and runs to September 2, 2014, one day before the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.

How do you enter?

  • First, follow us on Facebook or Instagram.
  • Take a photo (or find an old favorite from 2014) in Joshua Tree National Park.
  • Post your photo to your personal Instagram or Facebook account between July 1, 2014 and September 2, 2014, using  #focusjtnpa as the hashtag.

Two winners will be chosen: one from Instagram and one from Facebook.  Winners will be selected based on the number of likes the photo receives – the photo with the most likes win!

What is the prize?

  • Each winner will receive an annual pass to Joshua Tree National Park, a value of $30.00.
