#ManBehindTheMaps Photo Contest - Ends October 31

With your support, generosity and patience, we did it! The book has started to ship. If you ordered a copy and haven’t received it yet, keep an eye out for an email and tracking number over the next week.

To celebrate the book launch we invite you to join in a photo contest. Post a photo of The Man Behind The Maps: Legendary Ski Artist James Niehues at home, in the office, with your friends or out on the mountain. Share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #manbehindthemaps by the end of October.

We will like and repost some of our favorites so don’t forget to tag #manbehindthemaps. In mid-November, we will announce three winners who will get their choice of either a signed copy of the book or any Art Print available at JamesNiehues.com. Below are a few inspirational ideas followed by contest rules.  

Thank you! #manbehindthemaps
