Coaster101 Photo Contest 2017: Vote
It’s time to vote in our 2017 roller coaster photo contest! You have your work cut out for you this year. As you’ll see below, we received some amazing photos. Picking your favorites won’t be easy.
The voting period will run through Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. CST. We’l announce the winners shortly thereafter. Read below for rules and winner information.
How to Vote
Each category and its entries will have a dedicated photo album on our Facebook page — those galleries are also embedded below. Each Facebook “like” that a photo receives will count as one vote. You must have a Facebook account to vote on Facebook. You may vote once in both the “Original” and “Edited” categories.
In addition to a Facebook gallery, each “Instagram” category entry will also be posted on our Instagram page. Each “like” the photo receives on Instagram will count as an additional vote. You must have an Instagram account to vote on Instagram.
Note: to avoid overwhelming our Instagram followers’ feeds, we selected 10 of the best photo submissions (which in itself was very difficult to do).
The “original” and “edited” categories will have two winners: a Reader’s Choice (the photo that receives the most number of “likes”) and a Coaster101’s Choice (selected by the Coaster101 writers). The Instagram category will have a Reader’s Choice winner. Winners will receive a Coaster101 prize pack including prizes from parks across the country, a print of their winning photo and a $25 Visa gift card!
