#WTMAfricaExperience Photo Competition

In addition to these panels and presentations, we are once again collaborating with WTM Africa to organise and manage a photo contest for bloggers/influencers to take part in. This year we’re asking bloggers and influencers to share a photo from the event itself.

To enter the competiton, bloggers and influencers simply need to take a photo at one of the stands at WTM featuring a favourite or dream travel experience or destination, and upload it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #WTMAfricaExperience. The contest runs from 18th April (9am) till 20th April (noon).

Prizes include an overnight stay for two at Aquila Premier Lodge (a private game reserve just two hours outside Cape Town), a Bill Harrops Balloon Safari, a Cape Sidecar Adventures two-hour city tour for two in a WW2 sidecar, and a whale watching trip for two people from Dyer Island Cruises. These prizes will be awarded to those sharing the quirkiest and most original photos with the presentation of the prizes taking place during an informal event at the Media Lounge at WTM Africa on Friday, 20th April at 1pm.

Do let us know if you’re also heading to WTM Africa as we’d love to see you and your photos for the #WTMAfricaExperience competition too!
