Smoke Spot Photo Competition Reimagined - Smokin Js

Smoke Spot Photo Competition

Smoke Spot Photo Hunting:

Get out and explore our cosmic spaceship!  No matter the location, hunting down that perfect smoke spot is a time honored cultural labor of love.  I love exploring and searching for a unique secret smoke spot vista. 

Whether it be water falls, cliff faces, or secret downtown alleys, smoke spots are everywhere.  You are only limited by your imagination and stash jar.

I took my love for seeking the best secret smoke spots, and turned it into a monthly photo competition!

Keep in mind that secret smoke spots were created during a time of prohibition.  In many ways, you had to find that perfect secret smoke spot to avoid the long arm of the law. 

But beyond the necessity for legal privacy, hunting down that perfect secret smoke spot was a fun activity for the whole smoke circle.

What Makes a Great Smoke Spot?

I am partial to the great outdoors!  Smokin Js is located in the amazing Pacific Northwest.  From seas to volcanos, we have it all in our terrestrial paradise.

But honestly, the photo competition is all about heart, peace, and composition.

The best photo in any month might be that amazing scenic vista at the end of a long hike.  It could be that chill camp fire at the beach.  Perhaps that secret spot only you know about in the forest.

BUT, not all smoke spots are created equal!  You might have a kick-ass smoke spot right in your house.  I see you with those plush purple pillows!  Or maybe your great smoke spot is on your porch with amazing hanging flower baskets.

We want to share all your great smoke spot photos!  The contest is meant to honor our creative community.

What Makes a Great Smoke Spot Photo?

There are no rules to our smoke spot photo competition!  Glass, dabs, rolled meditative mediums - It doesn't matter what you are smokin on.  The winning photos usually have a glass pipe or rolled blunt in the photo, but it is not required.

It's all about the composition man. 

The photo contest is subjective.  We love a great photo that has balance and uniqueness.  Creativity, location, glass, smiles - They all count in the Smokin Js monthly contest.

The winning shot might come down to the color palate, or it might be the heady glass pipe.  It might be the location, or it might be the photo quality.  It might be the size of the wave, or it might be the detail of the sand. 

If we had clear judging criteria, then the competition might limit that special smoke spot you have in mind.  The key is:  Is it interesting and beautiful?  Tag your photo @JsSmokeSpot, and join our fun community.

Culture - We Want to Nurture Our Smoke Spot Community:

Smokin Js loves bringing people together to extend and share our smokin culture.  We created the @JsSmokeSpot Instagram Photo Competition 6 years ago to share our secret spots with you, and provide a vehicle for you to share your smoke spots with us. 

Why not give away some free swag while we do it!  Every month we sift through the smoke spot photos and photo tagged submissions on Instagram to pick a winner.  There is a cool unique prize each month.

We curate our IG account with amazing shots we find, but the photos tagged @JsSmokeSpot on IG are always given the highest weight in the competition.

Yes. The contest is still running every month. Currently Instagram has a block on hash tag searches. We will retroactively go back to the months since the election and select winners once the search ban is lifted.

Keep posting on IG with #JsSmokeSpot !! Show off those cool smoke spots.
