Love to take pictures when you travel? Now your vacation snapshots could be your ticket to a FREE Vantage European River Cruise for two.
Just send us your favorite photo (or two) from a Vantage tour or cruise and you could be this year's winner. Even if you don't win, your photo may appear in a Vantage catalog.
It's Fun and Easy to Enter!
Send us your best shot from a recent Vantage Memorable Journey® and we'll enter you in our photo contest. Winning photos are those that capture the spirit of traveling with Vantage. This contest covers trips taken in the last five years. Deadline to enter is July 31, 2014.
- The Grand Prize is a fabulous Deluxe River Cruise for two – a $10,000 value!
- The 2nd Place winner receives $1,000 in Vantage Travel Rewards.
- The 3rd Place winner wins $500 in Vantage Travel Rewards.
- High-resolution digital images are strongly preferred. When taking photos, set your camera to its highest/largest-size setting, which will make the image high resolution (3MB / 300 DPI digital color photography). Small images cannot be reproduced in print, no matter how nice the subject.
- Attach a brief description of the photo's subject, your name, the place where the picture was taken, the tour name, and the names of all individuals shown, from left to right.
- Be sure to include your name, address, and telephone number.
- Mail your photos to us on a non-returnable CD. Vantage reserves the right to publish all photos.
- Please limit your entry to 10 images and send us only your best. CDs with more than 10 images will not be reviewed.
- If you do send prints, they must be professionally printed (no home digital photo printers) and at least 5"x7" (8"x10" is preferred). Write your name(s), address, and information about the photo on the back with a felt-tip pen.
Here are some tips from our judges:
- Vantage name tags tend to catch our eye.
- We look for photos showing moments of discovery, learning, and interaction between people.
- Do not color correct your images — leave that to the pros.
- Do not digitally manipulate your photos in any way — we can tell.
- Only send your best images. We will contact you if we would like to see more.
- Make sure your photo is in focus or it won't reproduce well.
Sorry, slides or photos cannot be returned. Vantage reserves the right to publish photos.
