Give Us Your Best Shot! Winner of 15th Annual Safety Month Photo Contest Wins Free Entry to NSAA Event

To celebrate National Safety Awareness Month, NSAA Journal is holding its 15th annual Safety Month Photo Contest. The ski area that submits the winning image highlighting January 2024 Safety Month festivities will be awarded FREE registration to one NSAA event over the course of the next year: a Fall Education Seminar, Eastern or Western Winter Conference, or National Convention and Tradeshow.

The winning photo also will be featured in an upcoming issue of the Journal. All entries will be considered for inclusion in the article, which will review National Safety Month activities at resorts nationwide.

For resorts, this is an opportunity to gain national recognition for your ongoing safety education efforts. For photographers, this is a chance to have your work published in the leading national trade magazine serving the entire mountain recreation industry. All entries must convey a safety message, or depict resort guests and/or employees engaging in 2024 Safety Month activities. Images that feature good composition, clarity and originality will be given top consideration.

Send your January 2024 Safety Month photo to Heather Fried, editor-in-chief of NSAA Journal, via email to editor@nsaa.org. Please include a brief caption and photographer credit.

DEADLINE: March 1, 2024

Additional submission requirements:

  • Entrants must be the owner of the photograph, or otherwise have the rights to submit the photograph for publication.
  • Entries must be current, i.e., taken during January 2024.
  • Entries must be accompanied by a brief caption and also the photographer’s credit.
  • By submitting an entry and participating in the contest, entrants assign all rights to publish the photograph in the NSAA Journal without limitation and without compensation, and release the Journal from any liability with respect thereto.
  • Images must be high-resolution (at least 3,600 pixels top to bottom).

We look forward to seeing all the photos of how resorts throughout the country celebrate National Safety Month! Make plans now to line up a great photographer so you can document and share your resort’s participation in this important safety initiative.
