The National Park Foundation wants your best pictures taken on Federal Land.

The Share the Experience photo contest launched last week, and the beauty-shot contest of federal land is offering up its share of fabulous prizes.

Yes, this contest is sponsored by Ford and yes, is probably emblematic of the ongoing corporate sponsorship of underfunded public lands, but hey – I wouldn’t mind getting my photo on the Federal Recreation Lands Pass. Or getting a free trip to any national forest.

A hybrid SUV wouldn’t be too bad, either. Even if it’s a Ford.

Via a slightly paranoid Boing Boing, which notes an odd copyright contradiction in the contest’s official rules.
