We recently ran our second annual Walks of Italy travel photo competition. And while the #TakeWalks Photo Contest was a smashing success (don’t believe us? Check out the quality of the winning photos!), we know that some of you were disappointed that, for legal reasons, the contest was open only to residents of the U.S. and Canada.
Which is why we’re running another contest! This one is open to all residents outside of the U.S. and Canada, including our friends in Europe, Australia, and more.
Intrigued? Excited? Then get ready. It’s your chance to win!
Again, we’re going to give special consideration to photos that best embody the #TakeWalks movement. Just as we want you to tweet about local secrets using the #takewalks hashtag, we want to see photos that highlight “hidden” Italy. The photos don’t have to be of off-the-beaten-path destinations, although that’s great, too—but they have to give us a sense of discovery. Of authentic experience. Of something beyond the postcards.
We’ll pick the 10 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.
So, starting September 7, 2012 at 12:00am EST, send us your best photo—or a maximum of three photos—to firstname.lastname@example.org. (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, the photo aligns with the #takewalks movement. To be properly credited for your work, we also need your full name and email address. And tell us where you’re from!
The contests ends at 11:59pm EST on September 21, 2012. Here are the official contest rules.
(Please note: If you are not a resident of the U.S. or Canada and submitted photos as part of the first #TakeWalks contest, you must resubmit to be considered for this contest!).
