Tell us your story:

A friend and I found it difficult to motivate our families to exercise. Since both families are competitive, we created the Family Fitness Challenge. Every adult and kid gets 1 point a day for 30 minutes of exercise. After 30 days, the family with the most points wins a trophy and bragging rights along with a night out courtesy of the other family. We are exercising more than we ever and are cheering each other to get up and move. Even if we don't take home the trophy, it's a win-win situatio
Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your family is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
