Shenandoah is ready for its close-up! With Fall just around the corner, it makes the perfect season to visit Shenandoah National Park and take photos of the spectacular golden foliage, foraging black bears and breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountain. Delaware North is inviting visitors to share their colorful Fall photos with the world for an exciting chance to win weekly prizes or a grand prize including a Nikon COOLPIX P900 camera, and a two-night stay at Skyland or Big Meadows with breakfast and dinner.

To get involved, participants have the choice of submitting their best photos through Twitter or Instagram using the dedicated campaign hashtag #FallForShenandoah, and tagging @GoShenandoahNP on Twitter or @GoShenandoah on Instagram. To integrate first-party data capture, participants can also submit their entries directly through the form provided by uploading their photo and a supporting caption to describe what it is they love most about the park, as well as their personal contact details. Participants can also choose to opt-in to keep informed of the latest news and offers through email, providing Delaware North with valuable data that can be seamlessly synced to its CRM database.

To help tell the impressive story of the National Parks, Delaware North is also publishing the most envy-inducing entries to a social gallery for website visitors to browse, share and be inspired by. Content is automatically refreshed and updated to keep visitors thoroughly engaged.
