Shutterfly contest: Long Live Summer Photo Contest

I am little late to the game, but on July 9th Shutterfly launched a great contest with MANY prizes on Facebook. The contest is entitled "Long Live Summer" and goes through August 12th, 2012. So you still have plenty of time to participate with your favorite summer snapshots.
The Facebook contest page is here and you get both instant win prizes as well as sweepstake prizes, including a trip to the Bahamas.
There are themes for each week during the contest listed below:
•       Week 1(7/9): Americana
•       Week 2 (7/16): Great Outdoors
•       Week 3 (7/23): Water Fun
•       Week 4 (7/30): Sports & Activities
•       Week 5 (8/6): Parties & Celebrations

Because I was late getting to the game, you missed out on the week themed Americana. But the theme "Great Outdoors" is now live and you can easily find pictures for that. A day hiking in the mountains, a trip with the kids to the beach or simply having a picnic in a neighborhood park - they all fit into the theme. I have included one of my nature images from earlier this year. I may submit it or other pictures from my garden and backyard to the contest because my flowers, with the ample rain the spring, turned out great this year.

As I indicated above, they have great prizes. The whole list of prizes is below - who would not love a trip for the family to the Bahamas. And all for just entering a photo online. The complete rules for the contest can be seen here.
