HOW DO I ENTER THE COMPETITION?
Photographers: The only way to enter the competition is by submitting your photos online via this website. First, you must register
. If you registered in our previous competition you can use the same login details. Once you have registered and logged in, click on 'Submit an entry' and then just follow the prompts.
Voters: Register now
and we'll alert you once the voting period has started.
HOW MANY IMAGES CAN I ENTER?
You can enter up to 3 of your best images. Please remember the images must
be of activities or destinations in Europe offered by UTracks. If you are not sure who we are and what we do please visit the UTracks website
. Images not taken in Europe will not be approved for entry.
HOW IS THE WINNER DECIDED?
We will narrow down all entries to a Top 10 shortlist via a public vote. The 10 most popular images, as voted by the public, will be put forward to our panel of judges who will decide upon the winner.
WHO IS ON THE JUDGING PANEL
This competition is all about having a bit of fun and sharing your favourite Europe images with others. We haven't enlisted any famous photographers. One member of staff from each of our offices in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United Kingdom will vote on the winner.
WHAT HAPPENS IF TWO OR MORE OF MY IMAGES MAKE THE TOP 10 VOTED IMAGES?
Only one photo per photographer can make it to the Top 10 shortlist. If more than one of your images receive the same number of votes our judges will decide which of your images will make the shortlist. This way we will ensure 10 different photographers make it to the final round.
HOW CAN I GET MY FRIENDS TO VOTE FOR ME?
Get your friends to register and we'll remind both you and your friends when the voting period begins. Make sure they know your displayname so they can vote on your images, or just share a link to your image page through your social media channels.
HOW DO I SHARE THE MY PHOTO THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA?
Go to your photo page and simply click one of the social network sharing buttons at the bottom of this page. You will need a registered account with the social site you are using for it to function.
HOW MANY TIMES CAN I VOTE?
You can only vote on any image once. You can however vote on as many images as you wish. You can not vote on your own image. Friends or family will not be able to vote on your image using your competition account.
WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH MY EMAIL ADDRESS?
As a condition of entering an image, or voting on an image, you will automatically be subscribed to our free monthly e-newsletter, Tracks & Trails
. We will showcase the top voted images in each monthly newsletter before announcing the winner. We will not share your details with any partner in the promotion unless
you have specifically ‘opted-in’ to receive information from them.
I DON’T WANT TO BE PART OF YOUR NEWSLETTER, BUT STILL WANT TO VOTE
To vote you must agree to our Terms and Conditions, which includes becoming part of our exciting monthly e-newsletter, Tracks & Trails. If you choose not to agree to these then you will not be able to vote.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH THE IMAGES I SUBMITTED
By entering the competition you agree your image to be used in the promotion of UTracks holidays, whether in the form of a brochure, website, advertising or other means. No payments will be made to you for the use at any time and we assume that you are the original photographer. We’ll supply a credit where we can but this cannot always be guaranteed. Every entrant will receive a voucher to use against their next UTracks holiday (only one voucher per registered email address, even if you submit three images).
WHAT DOES THE MAIN PRIZE INCLUDE?
IF I WIN THE PRIZE OR RECEIVE A GIFT VOUCHER, I’D PREFER CASH INSTEAD. IS THIS POSSIBLE?
