Mountain Parks Guide offers two photo contests

Popular annual photo contest is back for another year, offering a new lineup of great prizes.

The newest edition of the 2015 Experience the Mountain Parks guide is hot off the press. The newest guide has been delivered to numerous tourist outlets where the public will be able to pick up free hard copies, or you can also access the handy digital edition at any time.

This 2015 parks guide is full of fun and practical articles. Find out about a new hot springs tour, ideas for a girls getaway, info on stand up paddleboarding, and much more. There are 19 pages of maps (including a full Icefields Parkway map), and for those who carry a camera there is a new Honeymoon photo contest, as well as the popular annual Photo Contest.

The New Honeymoon Contest gives you and your spouse an opportunity to win a second honeymoon! Submit a photo of you and your spouse in the Canadian Mountain Parks to be included in a random draw.

The winning couple will receive a trip on The Canadian between Jasper/ Edmonton to Vancouver, accommodation at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, and return in a cabin for two.

There has already been a good response to the Honeymoon Contest, and contest organizers say they are looking forward to awarding the prize to a lucky couple.  This contest closes Sept. 15, 2015.
