From the Fodors Forums: We Have a Winner!

Last month we introduced you, our readers, to our other community in the Fodor’s Forums, and it seems you all hit it off. So much so, in fact, that we received an unprecedented amount of entries for June’s travel photo contest, and might we add, you all outdid yourselves.

Where in the past we’ve stuck to one prize, after seeing all of your entries, we decided, “Why not two?” So, allow us to introduce you to the two prize winners.

In second place is Forum’s user julietrauerts9924 who took us to Canada with her serene photo “Beautiful Banff,” and who won one of our coveted (yes, coveted) swag bags as well as a Fodor’s Guide of choice.

And impressing everyone in the forums was user Melnq8, who, in first place, is taking home five guide books of choice and swag bag. If you want to see what a winning picture looks like, just check out their stunning photo “Lake Wakatipu”, which is giving us serious travel envy.

INSIDER TIPIf you’re looking to grab a Fodor’s Guide of your own, head to our bookstore and use code “JULYPHOTO” for 40% off.

And for those wanting to join in, there is still time to submit your pictures for our July photo contest, just follow this link. And for those just now learning about our forums (Hello, welcome!), keep reading to figure out how to get involved.

Welcome to the Fodor’s Forums

To join in on the forum-fun, simply upload your favorite travel photo here (while we all have favorite travel photographers, these photos do have to be your own). For those not quite used to the forum yet—it looks more than a little different from our main site—we have a helpful how-to for uploading a photo.

Don’t forget, after you upload your photo, go through and give your other favorites a like—this is a competition where the winner is chosen by you after all. And while we’re on the topic of winners, one photographer (amateur to professional, all are welcome!) with the most likes will get not only their choice of a Fodor’s Guidebook, but they’ll also get a Fodor’s swag bag full of exciting surprises!

Enticed? Have a travel photo in mind? Just make sure to check out the official rules before getting started! And, though it probably goes without saying, make sure to keep your travel photos safe for work (while we’re sure skinny dipping in Greece was thrilling and we’d love to hear about it, we should be upfront and say: that’s not this website).

Take to your phone, your cameras, whatever it is you snap a photo with, and pick your all-time favorite! And don’t worry, because this happens monthly, if you have a few photos you just can’t choose between, you’ll have your chance to share them all over time. So please, head to the forums because we want to hear what you, our favorite travelers, have to say.
