      Hi Rachel, we received your photos along with tons of others yesterday. Sorry for the delay, we’re working to get these up as quickly as we can!

    Howdy! I’ve got a couple of questions about the contest. Do you have any official rules posted? I just want to find out how you can use the images that are submitted and make sure by submitting photos I’m not giving up any rights to the images.
    Thank you!

    I’m having trouble finding where exactly I upload my photos. I went to tourist@do512.com then can’t find where to upload the photos. Any suggestions?

  4. Sara K. says:

    This is a great idea, may I ask what inspired you all to come up with it?
