Popular internet start-up Wix.com is running a photo-contest through the end of February, with a free trip to NY as the grand prize. With millions of users worldwide, the “Wix Was Here” challenge is already drawing hundreds of entries.

The "Wix Was Here" Challenge

Enthusiastic Wix users from around the world have already submitted photos featuring the official “Wix Was Here” sign at pubs, traditional festivals, landmark locations, and even at the bottom of a soapy bathtub.

The latest contest cooked up by the creative minds over at Wix.com is known as the “Wix Was Here” challenge. The idea behind the contest is to answer the question – “Where Was Wix?” through a photograph. The contest officially began on January 18th, and will run through February 21st, 2011.

Participation requires the taking of a digital photograph featuring a “Wix Was Here” badge, placed in a unique and interesting physical location. The photos can be uploaded to a dedicated ‘Contests’ tab on Wix’ Facebook fan page.

An official “Wix Was Here” badge can be downloaded from the "Wix Was Here" official website, and participants can also create their own badge. Stickers, stencils, embroidered patches, and even body paint are all fair game. An illustrated manual assists entrants with their Wix designs.

The Grand Prize winner of this challenge will be chosen by viewers’ votes. They’ll receive an all-expenses-paid trip for two to New York, including a 3-night stay at a hotel. Tickets to a Broadway show and other goodies will be provided as well. The second prize for “Best Photo” will be awarded by Wix’ panel of judges, and will include a brand new Samsung Galaxy tab.

Wix Community Director, Vered Avrahami comments, “As Wix expands internationally, maintaining a strong sense of community with our users is as important as ever.”

“The ‘Wix Was Here’ challenge is a fun way for our users to take a peek at their fellow users around the globe – a diverse community of people tied together with the familiar, yellow/white Wix figure.”

Non-Wix users are also invited to participate and vote in the contest. Anyone is welcome to participate, for a chance to win a sponsored NY vacation. Visit Wix.com’s Facebook page __ title__ Wix' Facebook page, and click the Contests tab for further details and instructions on how to enter.
