#OGATHOME Contest Details, Rules and Regulations

Hello, backpacktivists!

We so excited to kickoff our #OGATHOME contest in support of our partners around the world (and to help you meet them in person one day!). By participating, you’ll be supporting our partners as well as giving yourself the chance to win $500 towards an OG program anytime in the next 2 years. We hope you have fun with this, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Here are more details and the Official Rules:


  • To enter, recreate your favourite travel photo (it doesn’t have to be from an OG trip) from the comfort and safety of your own home – or wherever you happen to be laying low these days. Get creative!
  • Post the photo to Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #OGATHOME and be sure to tag @operationgroundswell.
  • To be eligible, both the hashtag #OGATHOME must be used and Operation Groundswell’s Facebook or Instagram page must be tagged.
  • The contest period begins on May 4, 2020 and ends on July 31, 2020.


  • The winner will receive $500 in OG Travel Credit to use on any OG program in the next 2 years
  • 2nd and 3rd place will receive $300 in OG Travel Credit to use on any OG program in the next 2 years

In addition, for every eligible entry, OG will contribute $5 towards its relief fund for our partners around the world who are being disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus outbreak.


  • By submitting your photo, you’re giving Operation Groundswell permission to use your photo for promotional materials
  • This contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Facebook or Instagram
  • Winners will be contacted and announced on August 1, 2020.
  • The Travel Credits have no cash value to the winner(s), and must be used before August 1, 2022. They can, however, be transferred to a friend.
