This is my shortened version, but read all the specifics starting with #7 in the terms and conditions — its a long list.  Most are obvious.

  • don't post photos that are negative, inappropriate, controversial,
  • No people are allowed in the photos
  • don't post any photos you exhibited publicly before
  • don't post anything inappropriate
  • don't post anything with clothing with visible brands, logos, trademarks, etc (since you aren't allowed to have people in the photo, I guess this means your own clothes, so don't take a photo of your own Ed Hardy clothes on the bed in the room).
  • you have to take the photo (and not take it from someone else)
  • other people may see the photos and you're giving them the right to use the photo


CONTEST PERIOD: April 17, 2014 to May 1, 2014



Three (3) winners will be selected, but only 1 person will win the grand prize — the all expense paid trip.  Here is what they are looking for:

  1. Uniqueness — Something that separates the photo from ones we've seen before (34%)
  2. Shot Composition (33%)
  3. Content — How well utilized is the content (e.g., location in a city, something special at the property) in the photo (33%)



Grand Prize: One (1) winner will receive a trip for 2 nights to one of the concerts (your choice).  This includes round trip economy flights for two, two nights hotel stay, two concert tickets.  Approximate Retail Value up to $5,000

First Prize: One (1) winner will receive 25,000 Starpoints. Approximate Retail Value $875.

Second Prize: One (1) winner will receive a fifty-dollar ($50) Ticketmaster Cash Code Gift Card.



I would choose purely based on location — either Dubai, Argentina, or China.  Which would you choose if you won?
