Contests Rules and Guidelines

The Great Morel is kicking off the 2021 Morel Season with one seasonal contest. The Great Morel is unofficially declaring this contest as the “Morels in Nature – Sighting of the Year” contest. The best-of-the-best photo submitted to the Sightings Map of “Morels in Nature” during the 2021 season will be crowned with a Great Morel Hat, T-shirt, Morel Deer Antler Key Chain, and have their photo used for the 2022 Puzzle. So keep in mind when you are out foraging – take the camera! This contest is made open only to newsletter subscribers and sighting reporters.

To qualify, you must submit your photo via the the Sightings Report. The winning photo will be determined at the end of June. Two Runner-ups will be rewarded with a hat and t-shirt of their choice.
