The Cuba Tourist Board has announced the winners of its photo contest to coincide with Travel Agent Day on May 5.
The tourist board launched the contest in April, calling on Canadian travel advisors to submit a picture that captures their favourite memory of Cuba for a chance to win a trip to Cuba and other prizes.
The Cuba Tourist Board created the campaign to “bring a little joy and excitement" to celebrate Travel Agent Day and to show their appreciation for the trade.
“We want to thank all the participants, we had fantastic entries which made very difficult to pick the winners,” Lessner Gomez, director of the Cuba Tourist Board in Toronto, said in a release on Tuesday (May 4).
“The choice was difficult based on the number of terrific photo-memories that were submitted. It is obvious that the agents who participated have a special place in their heart for Cuba, and the photos they submitted reflected this.”
And the winners are...
After careful consideration, the judges selected the following winners:
1st Place: “The Red Car” by Karen Grant of Plan-It Travel, The Travel Agent Next Door. (Toronto, ON)
2nd Place: “The Beach Experience” by Lucie Lamoureux of Vacances Bellefeuiile (Saint-Jérôme, QC)
3rd Place: “The Sunset” by Leo-Paul Cormier of Maritime Travel Toronto (Toronto, ON)
The contest judges and team at The Cuba Tourist Board congratulate the winners, all the travel consultants who participated, and wish everyone a happy Travel Agent Day!
