You don’t have to write a novel, just 400 to 500 words maximum will do and you will have to include just one high quality digital high resolution photograph that you think will illustrate your story in the pages of Sporting Shooter Magazine.
Now here is the hard part, you cannot use Facebook to submit this entry; you must email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with the article attached as a Microsoft Word document and the photo attached as a jpeg image of at least 1 megapixel/300 dpi resolution.
Each monthly published story will win a Vortex prize pack of a Vortex Cap, Insulated Drink Bottle (I have one and it’s awesome) and a Special Vortex Ram Horn Bottle Opener – to prompt you to get over and deck a Bighorn some day. (Prize schedule may change due
to stock availability)
If you’re entry is judged to be exceptional, in addition to the above you will win one of these three prizes listed below at the end of the first year’s competition in June 2018. The competition kicks off in the July 2017 issue, so you have 12 chances to win. There is to be only one entry per contestant and unsuccessful entrants may be published elsewhere in the magazine or on www.sportingshooter.com.au
So what are you waiting for? Get hunting, get writing and get snapping and you could experience the great world of Vortex Hunting Optics. So good luck and be sure you head up your email with “Hunter’s Diary Competition”.
