There will be two contests for participants ~ one for writing and one for photography. You are welcome to submit for both contests. Prizes will be announced at the conference!
• For writing, participants may submit a travel article or essay, of no more than 1500 words, on the topic “My Most Memorable Travel Lesson.” Please email your submission to Kathryn Petrocelli at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use "contest entry" as your subject line, and paste your submission into the body of the email rather than as an attachment. Please note: the deadline for contest entry is 5:00 pm on Friday, August 8th. We will only accept entries after that date for participants who register for the conference after Wednesday, August 6th. For these participants, we will accept submissions up until 6:00 pm on the day the conference begins.
• For photography, participants may submit three (3) photos representing “The Shot that Taught: A Lesson Learned through the Lens”. Please do not submit raw photos. The photos should be large, high-quality jpegs, with minimal alteration. You may submit via disk or flash drive. Please note: We ask that you bring your photographic submission with you to the conference. We will accept submissions up until 6:00 pm on the day the conference begins.
