AMPC is made possible through the sponsorship of Virtual Blue Ridge, the premier online resource for the Blue Ridge Parkway.

showcase their interpretation of the unique character, people, places, and pursuits that distinguish the Southern Appalachians.
Categories for the competition include: Adventure, Blue Ridge Parkway - Weather on the Parkway, Culture, Our Ecological Footprint, Flora/Fauna, and Landscape. $4,000 in cash and prizes are made possible through the generous support of the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, Footsloggers Outdoor and Travel Outfitters, and Appalachian Voices.
