This Instagram photo contest is a competition to select the best depiction of the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks. The amazing vistas and unique sights of Orange County’s only National Natural Landmark have inspired many to capture the view in a photograph. To submit your photo to the contest, post your photo on Instagram and tag @OCMountainstoSea in your photo before October 2.
After the two week submission period, photos will be judged by representatives from OC Parks, City of Irvine and Irvine Ranch Conservancy. The judges will also include Alex Gurrola, winner of the first “Love the Landmarks” photo contest. Gurrola is also well-known to outdoor enthusiasts through his Instagram account: @your_favorite_hiker. He is also a volunteer with Irvine Ranch Conservancy and can often be found helping others explore the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks.
The contest is open to amateur photographers 18 and over, and up to three photos per person may be submitted. Visit the Irvine Ranch Natural Landmarks Instagram feed to get started: @OCMountainstoSea.
