Gear Aid, the repair and maintenance brand for outdoor gear by McNett, has teamed up with Alpacka Pack Raft and Andrew Skurka to launch an adventure photo contest in conjunction with Skurka’s national book tour and lecture series.
Running now through May 31, the Gear Aid Wildernut Photo Contest (http://www.mcnett.com/contest/wildernut) encourages contestants to submit their best adventure photos for a chance to win an autographed copy of Skurka’s new book, “The Ultimate Hikers Gear Guide: Tools & Techniques To Hit the Trail,” an Alpacka pack raft (Skurka’s favorite piece of gear) and McNett products featured in the book.
“We’re excited to see the wilderness through the eyes of our customers,” said Cheriss Faiola, community development specialist at McNett. “These pictures can be used to inspire others to get outdoors, have fun and help take care of our natural resources.”
Entrants are encouraged to share the contest with their friends because for every 20 entries Gear Aid will award an additional second place winner (up to 20 winners in all). Second place winners are also awarded an autographed copy Skurka’s new book as well as outdoor gear from the McNett family of brands, including Gear Aid repair kits and water repellents, Aquamira water treatment products and Aquaseal by the M Essentials™ water sports brand.
“All of these products are featured in Skurka’s new book,” said Faiola. “And with his spring speaking tour in full effect, we felt this photo contest was a great way to get the best in outdoor gear to those adventurous enough to submit their photos.”
Skurka’s spring speaking tour will be stopping at 50 locations across the United States until May 31. McNett will provide attendees of tour events with outdoor gear, raffle prizes and free giveaways.
