The PAX-Sunwing Holiday Snapshots contest is back

The PAX-Sunwing Holiday Snapshots contest is back

Hey, travel agents!

Our Holiday Snapshots Contest is back, running this year from Sept. 16 to Oct. 29.

As travel agents, you’re on the frontlines, visiting places that some people can only ever dream of seeing. This year, we want your best shot, whether it’s that time you watched a glorious sunset paint the sky orange, a captivating portrait of a friendly face you met along the way, or a fleeting moment that inspired you to click the shutter. 

Travel is transformational, riveting, inspiring, and uplifting, and now, it’s your chance to show us what it means to you through your photographs.

Travel agents can submit up to three photos (per participant) between Sept. 16 and Oct. 14, 2019. Voting begins Oct. 15 through Oct. 25, with the winner will be announced on PAXnews.com on Oct. 29. Looking for some inspiration? Submit your very best creative vacation snapshots with these ideas in mind: 

  • PEOPLE PERSON: Was it their smile? The way they carried themselves? Consider sending a photo of the locals you’ve met or been inspired by on your travels. 
  • LANDSCAPE LOVER: Awe-inspiring scenery from around the world. From bustling city neighbourhoods, to dramatic mountain peaks, we want to see what takes your breath away.
  • NATURAL BEAUTY: The world is a beautiful place. From flora and fauna to land, sea and sky, send us your best “no filter needed” moments.

Photography skills will be the deciding factor that sends one lucky agent down to Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Costa Rica onboard Sunwing Airlines. The approximate value for one all-inclusive vacation for two (2) to the Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Costa Rica is $5,170 plus taxes.
