New Hampshire is a prime spot for taking photos of fall foliage and to capitalize on it, state tourism officials have kicked of a “Picture Perfect” photo contest to encourage residents and visitors to snap away. Photo winners will be chosen in each of the seven tourist regions of the state: Great North Woods, White Mountains, Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee, Lakes, Monadnock, Merrimack Valley and Seacoast. The contest runs through Oct. 31. Participants can upload their work to the contest website, www.fall.visitnh.com, where they can also find official rules and list of prizes.

One winner from each region will be announced the first week of November, and prizes include overnight stays, museum passes, dinners and rock-climbing lessons, among others. The total value of all prizes is $2,120, according to the rules, with the biggest being from the White Mountains, valued at $900, where the winner will net things like two passes for a snow-coach ride up the Mount Washington Auto Road, tubing, skiing and rentals at Great Glens Trails Outdoor Center, two nights for two at Attitash Grand Summit hotel, and a canvas print of the winner’s photo.
