Photo Contest: Be An Olympian!

Take photos of you, your kids, your neighbors, your friends doing something Olympian— diving, swimming, kayaking, gymnastics—and you could win a prize!

Patch wants to celebrate the summer Olympics, and all the games that go with it!

To do that, we're inviting you to share your favorite photo of you (or your kids, your friends, your neighbors, heck, even your pets!) participating in a sport that is part of the Summer Olympics.

So whether it’s sailing or fencing, swimming or gymnastics, archery or kayaking (or any of the 26 sports in the games)—please share your photo! You can post a photo to this article until 5 p.m., July 30.

Patch editors will choose our 10 favorites, and then you, the reader, can vote for the winner in an article that will be posted on July 31. The winner will receive a $50 gift card to a local sporting goods store.

Here are some more details on the contest:

  • Open to legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia who are 18 and older.
  • To enter, upload a photo.
  • All entries must be received by 5 p.m., July 30, 2012, St. Louis time.
  • You may enter as many photos as you would like.
  • Patch editors will choose 10 photos, which will advance to the voting round. Patch readers can vote for their favorite photos by posting in the comments on the article.
  • The winner will receive a $50 gift card.

Since it is after 5 PM July 30, I assume the current 61 photos are all that will be considered? Strange that there is still an active Upload button. Looks like some great entries, good luck to everyone!

Yes, we'll only be considering the ones uploaded up till 5 p.m....but we won't say no if anyone wants to share more photos!

Kurt, since this is such a timely event, and submission deadline was Monday, I was wondering when the next round is slated to begin. Thanks so much!
