3rd Week Winner in The Love Letter Photo Contest: Beauty in the Backyard

May 4th, 2011

“My love letters could quickly become a book, so many are the places that have touched my life. The Adirondacks where I discovered the beauty and solitude of self sufficiency as a backpacker, the Appalachian Trail where I learned exactly how much tenacity it takes to reach one’s goal, the Himalaya where I learned to appreciate the scale of nature and the depth of warmth a people can have, Cambodia where I was given a glimpse of a beautiful Phoenix rising from the ashes… But my heart bursts with love in the canyonlands and San Juan mountains of my own backyard where now I can give my daughters the gift of backpacking so that it can lead them into a life filled with confidence, beauty and a love for all things wild.” — Alisa O’Hara Gardiner

Congratulations Alisa! Ready to post your own love letter? Just one more week in the contest! Here’s how you enter

April 12th, 2011

Do you have your own love letter? Have you ever visited a place that changed your life? Have you found a secret climbing crag where you seek refuge from the daily grind, or a surf break on a secluded beach that only you can find? Do you have a stretch of trail that brings you back in tune with nature, or maybe even your own urban sanctuary in the midst of a whirring city? We want to see and hear about the places that make you whole, that fill your heart with solitude and wildness — the places that have the power to restore the human spirit.

Wend Magazine April Friday Photo Contest: Trail Running

April 7th, 2011

via Wend Magazine:

Despite April’s slogan, April showers bring May flowers, it’s a month of increasing sun and warmth for most of us. It’s a playful month, one that beckons spring while flirting with winter. And, as last year’s April Friday Photo contest reminded is, “April itself welcomes growth, and the opening of an entirely new season in which to play in the great outdoors, among the glory of the world’s forests, jungles and overwhelming landscape of trees galore.” So, this year, this April, we happily play homage to one of the most enjoyable ways a human can enjoy the wooded landscape, through April’s Friday Photo Theme: Trail Running.

Maybe you never hit the trails without a partner or your favorite podcast. Maybe you do it for absolute solitude. Maybe you run because your cardiologist says it’s good for you. Maybe you blow snot rockets with pride and trip over unassuming tree roots with relish. How ever, why ever you trail run, we’d like to see it.

Show us your favorite or most hated trail run. Show us the muddiest, the muckiest of all trails or the most magnificent dusty path you’ve ever pounded your two feet on. We want to see photographs that demonstrate trail running in all its grit and (or) glory.

Send us your shots! And our winners will win an entirely re-vamped trail running wardrobe, including a pair of men’s or women’s Saucony ProGrid Pwomen’s Saucony ProGrid Peregrine trail blazing shoes, a Saucony men’s (or women’s) Transition Sport Top II, as well as a men’s or women’s Boston pant.

In addition, winners will get the perfect companion for a long trail runt an ultra comfortable, gender-specific hydration pack from Osprey. Gents, you’ll receive a Viper 10 pack; ladies will receive the Verve 10 pack.

Want your own chance at winning? Submitting is easy! Just fill out this submission form and make sure to include a description of the photo you submit and the address of where you want your gear sent in the body of the message. Good luck!

You can submit photos from anywhere in the world, but we will only ship prizes to addresses within the continental UnitedStates.

Feel free to submit as often as you’d like. We’ll choose a winner every Friday. And help us spread the word. We have a new theme (and a new set of prizes) every month.

Congrats “What’s In Your Pack?” Contest Winners!

August 23rd, 2010

Photo by Emily Nuchols

In July we asked all of you to submit photos of “what’s in your pack?” It didn’t even need to be an Osprey pack, we just wanted to see what you’ve been packing on your summer trips, weekend warrior hikes or even just for an afternoon stroll in the city. Congrats to our two winners who both score a Farpoint 70! Check them out below.

Grand Prize Winner

How could we not choose this photo (taken by William of Summit 42)? It’s creative, funny, and best of all, cute. Plus, we support people getting their kids out on the trail nice and early. There’s no better way to instill a love of the outdoors than doing it at a young age.

People’s Choice Award

We decided an Osprey contest wouldn’t be complete without the input of our fans, so we got people to vote on photos over on our Facebook page. Congrats to Justin Boland for getting the most “thumbs up” on his photo.

Didn’t win? Don’t worry, we’ll be doing plenty of contests in the near future, so keep your eyes open!

What’s In Your Pack? A Day’s Worth of Adventure

July 23rd, 2010

A lot of good stuff got crammed into this Talon 22, and we’re pretty sure that means Flickr user Destructo Girl knows how to get in an excellent day hike. Frisbee, camera, travel journal… what more do you need?

What’s In Your Pack? Climbing Sustenance

July 15th, 2010

With the Tour de France in full swing we’ve got Europe on the brain, so for week two of our photo contest we figured it would be only fitting to feature a classic “What’s In Your Pack?” Euro style. Flickr user AeroSoph knows just what it takes to climb the highest mountain in the Pyrenees, Pico Aneto: an ice axe, an Osprey and of course, some delicious baguettes. That’s good use of those outer pockets!
