Fly.com Wants You To Share Your Favorite Vacation Photographs
NEW YORK, November 13, 2012 -- Fly.com™, the world’s easiest-to-use airfare search engine, today launched its first photography competition for Fly.com fans. The contest, running on Fly.com’s Facebook page, gives U.S. travelers the opportunity to win up to $2,500 in prizes, including airfare and spending money for their next vacation.
Any U.S. resident 18 years or older can enter the competition through January by submitting his or her favorite vacation photographs in one of four categories: aerial/airport, action, scenic (landscape and cityscape), and artistic travel. The top three entries for each category will be determined by a panel of judges that includes employees from Fly.com and the competition’s co-sponsor, Vayama, as well as independent guest judge Paul Brady, associate editor of Huffington Post Travel. Fly.com Facebook fans will then be asked to vote for their favorites. The highest number of fan votes will determine the winner for each category, as well as the overall grand prize winner.
“Everyone likes to post vacation snapshots on Facebook, but now Fly.com is giving its fans the unique opportunity to share their favorite vacation photos with the world,” said Warren Chang, vice president and general manager, Fly.com.
At stake is a grand prize that includes a $1,000 Visa gift card, a $1,000 airfare voucher from Vayama, and a Canon Powershot S110 camera. The three runners-up will receive a $1,000 Visa gift card and a $500 airfare voucher from Vayama. Winners will be announced on March 4.
