Nevada Magazine announces 33rd annual Great Nevada Picture Hunt
For more than three decades, Nevada Magazine’s Great Nevada Picture Hunt photo contest has been a favorite among readers. One Grand Prize winner in this year’s contest will receive $250 and a Lake Tahoe helicopter tour courtesy of HeliTahoe. Five category winners (City Limits, Wide Open, Events, People, and Adventure) will each receive $100. Send photo submissions, preferably via e-mail, to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5 p.m. (PST) on Friday, June 11, 2010. If you need to mail your images, call 775-687-0606 for instructions.

Nevada Magazine also recently switched subscription service providers to Minnesota-based PMG Data Services. “We are happy to announce our new association with PMG,” says publisher Janet M. Geary. “This company will be handling all the circulation needs for our readers.” Now, ordering a subscription via nevadamagazine.com is easier than ever. Soon, customers will be able to change their address, check their renewal status, and get their questions answered online.
In Nevada Magazine’s May/June 2010 issue
In the May/June 2010 issue (shown at left), available on newsstands, we explore Nevada’s softer side, with a photo feature on the state’s wildflowers and a guide to stargazing around the Silver State. A story about family-friendly attractions in and around Las Vegas and Reno provides readers with options that will keep the kids entertained, and our events-themed Spotlight covers a number of family-friendly outings to plan for this spring and summer.
A story about Nevada’s trio of wineries is perfect for when mom and dad need a break from the kids. Not to ignore Nevada’s rugged side, this issue’s History story recaps the famous 1910 Jack Johnson-James Jeffries heavyweight boxing match in Reno. The other feature highlights the state’s little-known military operations in Fallon, Hawthorne, and Las Vegas. Finally, the magazine’s Tour Around Nevada continues in the southeastern border town of Mesquite.
