Fodor’s Travel and VISIT FLORIDA announce the launch of travel photography contest “Show Us Your Florida” where one grand prize winner will receive a St. Pete’s Beach, Florida vacation for two, courtesy of TradeWinds Island Resorts.
From April 1 through April 30, visitors to Fodors.com are invited to upload their favorite Florida vacation photos and the stories behind them to share their adventures with other travelers. The winning photographer will receive roundtrip airfare for two and three nights’ accommodation at the TradeWinds Island Resorts in St. Pete Beach, Florida. The winner will also receive a collection of Fodor’s guidebooks. Ten runner-up winners will have their photographs featured in a slideshow on Fodors.com and win a Fodor's guide of their choice.
“Florida has long been one of the most popular vacation destinations for our readers—and with good reason,” says Fodor’s Publisher Tim Jarrell. “A locale with so much to offer, from world-class beaches, fishing, and golf, to hot spots known for their urban sophistication, history, or whimsical sense of fun—Florida is sure to please.”
