The contest, developed in partnership with the park’s official ferry, Yankee Freedom III, and Everglades & Dry Tortugas National Parks, invited participants to take photos of the Dry Tortugas and to share them on social media sites like Twitter.
Twelve finalists have been selected and each has already received a National Parks Annual Pass. They are counting on votes from the public to help them win the $500 grand prize and the chance to participate in a national competition with other U.S. National Parks.
The contest was created to celebrate the National Park Service Centennial, as well as to showcase the beauty of Dry Tortugas National Park and its diverse array of experiences guests can expect when they visit.
At Dry Tortugas National Park, a variety of remarkable experiences await visitors who venture out to these remote islands, including camping, snorkeling, bird watching, fishing or enjoying the views and night sky from atop massive Fort Jefferson. You quickly realize how magical this place can be.
