Have a gorgeous shot of Italy that you’ve always wanted to show off? Now’s your chance!
From August 1 to August 15, send us your best travel photograph of Italy for the chance to get your work published on the Walks of Italy blog! The perfect shot can be anything from a landscape to a portrait. Here’s the catch: We want it to show us, and others, what you found to be the “essence” of Italy.
We’ll pick the ten best snaps to be featured, along with the photographer’s name, on an upcoming blog post. And the grand prize winner for the best photo will get a gift basket of goodies from Italy sent to his or her house, on us. (Craving some prosciutto di Parma or proper parmigiano-reggiano cheese? You don’t have to wait till your next trip. Now’s your chance!).
How does it work? Send us your best photo — or a maximum of three photos — to [email protected] (Each photograph must be 500 kilobytes or less. If you need to, you can do this by simply resizing the photograph and saving the smaller version separately from your original file). Please include a caption of maximum 100 words telling us where you took it and why, for you, it shows the “essence” of Italy. To be properly credited for your work, we also need your full name and email address. And tell us where you’re from!
The contest begins on 12:01am EST on Monday, August 1. It will close at 11:59pm EST on Monday, August 15. Open to legal residents of the United States and the District of Columbia or Canada only, 18 years and older. Here are the official rules for the Walks of Italy Travel Photo Contest.
Please remember that your entry may not be considered if you don’t follow the above rules.
Here at Walks of Italy, we can’t wait to see all your beautiful shots (and to award the very best ones!). So get ready, set… send ’em!
