Fodor's Travel partners with Tourism Australia and Swain Tours to announce the co-sponsorship of travel photography contest, "Show Us Your Australia" through which one grand prize winner will win a trip for two to Melbourne and Adelaide, Australia.
From October 6th through November 5th, visitors to Fodors.com can upload and share their favorite photos and experiences of Australia with other travelers. The winning photographer will receive an "Ultimate Food, Wine, and Nature Walkabout Tour," highlighting locales in and around Melbourne and Adelaide, complimentary airfare, and accommodations for themselves and a guest, at a value of seven thousand dollars. The trip, provided by Tourism Australia and Swain Tours, will include explorations of nature parks, museums, wineries, and gourmet markets. Ten runner-up winners will have their photographs featured in a slideshow on Fodors.com and win two Fodor's guides of their choice and all photographs will be considered for publication in the upcoming edition of Fodor's Australia guidebook.
Said Tim Jarrell, Publisher, Fodor's, "Australia's natural wonderland of beaches with bright blue waters and golden outback of ancient rock, coupled with its thoroughly modern urban centers and distinctive culture should make for some truly eye-popping photographs. We're excited to see the Land Down Under through the eyes of our readers."
"There's nothing more powerful than images from real travelers showcasing their Australian travels," said Daryl Hudson, Tourism Australia's Vice President Americas. "Australia's experiences, from wildlife spotting on Kangaroo Island to hot air balloon rides over the Yarra Valley, also create compelling reasons to get on a plane to Australia now."
