2014 Photo Contest - My Travel Moment


The theme of the contest is “My Travel Moment”. At Collette, travel is about so much more than going places. Our world contains so many experiences for us to enjoy. But there’s one thing those adventures – the brilliant sunsets, the lost cities, the soaring peaks, the dramatic landmarks, and the incredible meals – all share. They remind us what life is all about. It is about being a part of something greater. Along with aesthetic considerations, images are judged on the ability to capture these feelings during a personal travel experience.

Grand Prize

6 nights in Santorini, Greece with hotel and airfare for 2 from your gateway city!

This is your chance to win a free trip to Santorini, Greece, a European island paradise in the Aegean Sea. With vibrant candy-colored houses carved into cliffs, impossibly blue water, black sand beaches, and villages that will transport you into the past, Santorini is a picture-perfect dream come true, and it’s only a snapshot away.

3rd place: $400 Collette travel credit

Tips for Taking a Winning Photo

  • To achieve the best lighting, position the sun behind you when setting up for a shot.
  • Focus on one or two subjects instead of a crowd of people.
  • Pay attention to the background. Avoid moving cars, distracting patterns, or objects directly behind your subject’s head.
  • Break out of the ordinary. Sometimes positioning your subject off-center or shooting from an interesting angle produces a more dynamic photograph.
  • Have your camera ready at all times. You never know when the perfect shot will present itself!

This year, the people have the vote!


After the Collette judges narrow the entries down to the top 3 finalists, the real voting begins! All three photos will be posted on Facebook, and Collette's Facebook fans will vote on which photograph they believe is the most extraordinary and memorable travel moment. If your photo inspires the more than ten thousand Collette Facebook fans, you could find yourself on the beautiful island of Santorini, all thanks to your incredible travel moment!
