Photo Contest
In these unprecedented times sometimes the best way to escape the self isolation we find ourselves in is by reliving our cherished memories. To inspire everyone in the Adventures Abroad community to recall their memories we are launching a series of photo competitions by country. Share 1-3 photos from your Adventures Abroad trip to Italy with a caption about the photos or your trip. The top 4 submissions for each country will be featured in the next newsletter, and the top submission for each country will be eligible for a $200 credit for their next tour. We hope you all enjoy this trip down memory lane and can't wait to see what you come up with. Please send in your photos and captions to [email protected] or to our social media accounts in a direct message.

Competition Rules: Photos submitted must be while on an Adventures Abroad tour. Only one photo competition credit can be used per tour. We reserve the right to use photo and caption submissions for eblast, webpage and blog, or social media postings. Winning submissions will be posted on the photo contest page.
