This time, it's all about YOU!
Lambertville, MI (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
They say a picture is worth a thousand words; in the case of QuickPick Travel’s photo competition, it’s worth a $5000 vacation.
Pamela Terhune, Director of Marketing of QuickPick Travel, the newest player in the online travel industry, says, “We wanted to give people a chance to showcase their vacation photos in a fun, engaging way, so we created a travel gallery on our website that any traveler can submit to. The pictures coming in were amazing and we knew we needed to do something bigger with them.”
This is when the company developed a series of photo contests to be held periodically throughout the year. The first contest allows friends, family, and site visitors to vote on their favorite picture. The contest is currently running and ends on May 31, 2015. The picture with the most votes wins. The winner can then, with the help of a QPT Travel Specialist, build and book a vacation to suit their needs, style, and interests.
“Our whole business model is built upon the motto: ‘This time it’s all about you!’ so we knew it was important to not offer a pre-packaged vacation,” Terhune states. “In the same way our online travel planning site works, the winner gets a vacation of their choosing anywhere in the world, completely customized to them.”
QuickPick Travel breaks the mold of online travel sites by not forcing users to rely on search engine data to sort through and make best guesses when travel planning. Instead, the site uses a proprietary database to link users to travel specialists who will take each traveler’s unique personality and needs into account when creating a travel itinerary for them. The user will receive up to 3, itineraries within 24 hours of the request, at no cost to them, and can then choose to book travel with one of the providing agents.
“Silly Snapshot, our first photo contest, steps away from the traditional picturesque landscapes often taken while on vacation, and asks for those silly moments with family and friends that capture the fun and frivolity of a vacation. And while we’ve already tallied thousands of votes, with so much time left in the contest, it’s anyone’s game!”
The contest is open in the U.S. and anyone 18 or over can enter. To submit a photo and see other entries go to http://bit.ly/1HbSjwQ.
