I love Backpacker Magazine and I wish I could submit one of my photos to the contest, but giving up the rights to one's photography isn't worth a chance at winning a backpack. Its a shame, I'd love to have something of mine printed in the pages of such a great magazine.

Yes, if you saw the note "Thank you for your participation in our survey!" that means your photo was received. I have since updated the text after submission so it is clearer that your photo was received.

The entry area is replaced with a "Thank You" message when the photo is submitted properly.
