Capture Your Summer Memories

Have wide-open fun in TVA’s wide-open spaces this year, snap a pic, and you could win great prizes courtesy of #TVAfun, now celebrating its fifth birthday!

Summer’s time for #TVAfun, and this year’s no different. Social distancing has changed the way we’re interacting indoors, but in the great wide open, it’s easy to keep a healthy six feet perimeter.  

Hiking, camping and fishing are all very much on the menu, as are boating, swimming, mountain biking, picnicking, bird watching, kayaking, and more. With 293,000 acres of beautiful public land, 11,000 miles of gorgeous shoreline, and 650,000 surface acres of rippling surface water, TVA has the amenities to help you make summer memories happen.

While you’re out having a ball, take a few minutes to capture a special moment in a sweet snap, and enter our annual #TVA photo contest. You could win great prizes, including a Go Pro Hero 8 camera, an Eno hammock, and a solar-powered mobile phone charger. Just upload your photo to Instagram using the hashtag #TVAfun.
