HOW TO ENTER
• Attend the Trans-Pecos Gathering in Marfa, September 27-30, 2012
• Capture the magic with your phone or camera
• Share photos on Instagram:
- Use the hashtag #transpecos2012
- Geo-tag your location at El Cosmico
- If entering the Shiner portion of the contest, be sure to hashtag #shiner
• Not into the future? Don’t have Instagram? No problem – enter the old school way:
- Complete first two steps above
- Create a photo album on Facebook and share it with El Cosmico’s Facebook page by October 5. Be sure to @mention Shiner if entering that portion of the contest.
- Okay, so that’s not very old school. We also accept submissions by messenger pigeon, telegraph and morse code. Not really. But if you don’t have Facebook or Instagram and would still like to enter, email us by October 5 and we’ll get you set up.

All entries must be submitted by October 5, 2012. Awards will be announced by October 12. Winner of Shiner beer competition must be able to claim prize in Austin. Please limit your photography and video equipment at the event - no elaborate light setups, reflectors, or camera crews allowed. We don't require that you be an amateur photographer/videographer to enter, but we ask that you keep your shooting mellow so as not to disrupt the party vibe.
Winners agree to allow El Cosmico and Shiner to use all photos and video on the web, in social media and in all other promotional channels into perpetuity. Photographer/videographer will be credited where used. Award stays at El Cosmico are subject to availability. You must be 21 years of age to enter the Shiner category of the competition.
