Contest: Win $100 Gas Card by Sending Us Fall Pictures

Cider mills, football games and Halloween - fall is surely upon us. Show us what signals the season for you by uploading your pictures here. If you do, you'll be entered to win a $100 BP gas card.

Leaves are starting to fall, cider mills are opening and football season is in full force.

These no doubt are some of fall's highlights.

What are the signs that signal the autum season for you? Is it things like campfires after dark, a last boating outing or visiting a pumpkin patch?

Shoot your favorite fall image and upload it to our gallery, by clicking on the upload photo above. And add a caption detailing what's happening in the picture, if you like.

The contest begins Sept. 17 and will end at noon Sept. 24. We'll choose a photo at random and that Patch reader will win an $100 BP gas card, which certainly could come in handy for that drive to see the fall colors!

OK, now for the rules:

  • Open to legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia who are 18 and older.
  • To enter, upload a photo showcasing a sign of fall.
  • All entries must be received by noon Monday, Sept. 24, Eastern Time.
  • You may enter once.
  • One winner will be selected in a random drawing.
  • One (1) Winner will receive an $100 gas card. 
  • Click Here for complete Official Rules.

If you still are unsure how to add a photo, here is a step-by-step guide. But be sure to come back. Only photos uploaded to the gallery on this contest page are eligible.

My best friend's mother would call these "champagne days" because now is when we indulge ourselves in the soft fleeting warmth of the sun, the color and all the changes until we start to slip into blurs of gray and white--the photos are all awesome-keep them coming-
