Be Out There's Dirtiest Kid Photo Challenge

In honor of The Dirt on Dirt, Be Out There asked families to enter their muddiest, messiest pictures in our Dirtiest Kid Photo Challenge. Dirt really is good for kids and boy do these photos prove it!

Members of our Flickr photo group  uploaded hundreds of images of their kids or families being out there. It was a difficult task to pick just a few winners. Thank you so much to everyone who went outside and got down and dirty. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed the photos!

One lucky entrant will win a $100 gift card from our friends at Polarn O. Pyret. They’ll also win free entrance into our National Wildlife Photo Contest for the chance to win up to $5,000! Four other favorites will be recognized for their dirt-filled adventures with $25 gift cards to Polarn O. Pyret. 

Photo Challenge Details

Entry is now closed. Winners will be announced on Friday, May 25. The photo challenge winner and finalists will be featured on the Be Out There website and recognized on Flickr. We will notify finalists and the winner by Flickr mail.

By entering the photo challenge, you agree to the rules and guidelines of Be Out There’s Green Hour Photo Group and Dirtiest Kid Photo Challenge.

What kind of photos were we looking for?

Each photo must:

  • Be taken outside (cities, parks, backyards – any outdoor space is acceptable)
  • Include DIRT (dry dirt, wet dirt aka. mud, soil, sand)
  • Feature at least one child (under the age of 12)
  • Optional elements include parents, pets, frogs, worms, plants, bugs, pie tins, galoshes, bare feet, umbrellas, hoses, and other outdoor play props. We aren’t picky.

Winning pictures will be selected based on photo composition, originality, dirt creativeness, and overall level of cuteness. Please note: cuteness does not have to mean covered from head to foot in mud.

Above all else, we want you to have FUN and enjoy the outdoors!
