TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — It’s that time of year. Heavy bass notes thrum, vehicles, bikes and people are prepped with outlandish and vivid decor, while immense and inspirational art is hauled and installed on the playa.

As Black Rock Desert begins to fill with the wonder that is Burning Man, we here at the Sun are celebrating all that is desert art with a Facebook Burning Man photo contest.

Enter your photos, past, present and future for a chance to win one of three great prizes:

Rinse Off: a night’s lodging for two in at The Hampton Inn & Suites in Truckee.

Fill Up: a $50 dinner certificate from Rubicon Pizza in Northstar.

Cool Down: a basket of local, handmade soothing spa products from Lather & Fizz Bath Boutique.

The contest opens Aug. 16 and closes Sept. 15.

Upload your high resolution image(s) to the Sierra Sun’s Facebook page and let the voting begin.

The three images with the most “Likes” on Sept. 15 will be the official winners of the Sun’s FB Burner contest.

Please remember we are a community publication / site. Images must be appropriate for all ages.

Costumes: good.

Art: good.

Vehicles: good.

Tent activity — not so much.

The Sierra Sun will also print a selection of images during and after the contest — be sure to include a photo caption and photo credit.
