We’re giving away more than $1,000 in Amazon Gift Cards!
We love to see students in our photos. That’s why we’ve extended the photo contest through June 15, 2014.
Scroll down to upload photo entries right from this page!
For your high-resolution photo to count toward these particular contests, please submit entries by 11:59 p.m. EDT, on June 15, 2014.
Two ways to win…
#1. Wear your Explorica sunglasses
Submit shots of you and/or your friends sporting Explorica sunglasses. Entries will be judged on how creatively you get those glasses in the frame! And try to set the shot so that the Explorica logo is clearly in view. That will get you extra brownie points!
#2. Capture some cultural immersion
The second contest concerns immersion into the culture you’re touring. Perhaps you’ll snag a sweet candid of colleagues getting down with the natives. Or maybe you’ll get the opportunity to participate in a local custom. If so, don’t forget your camera! We’ll especially be looking for shots containing context clues that indicate where you are in the world.
First prize for each contest gets a $300 Amazon Gift Card! We’ll award the top three photographers in each contest Amazon prizes.
