Dates of travel are subject to change at the Promoter's sole discretion.

The Winners agree at the time of confirming each Prize they shall acknowledge and accept the Promoter's then prevailing booking terms and conditions for the trip provided.

Photos that do not comply with these guidelines may be disqualified.

In addition, photos should be representative of the site or natural feature you have selected as your world wonder. Photos of nondescript or indiscernible landscapes or locations will not be accepted as a valid entry. For example, a selfie taken in a spot that could be anywhere in the world will not be accepted.

Only one photo is allowed per entry, which means collages or montages will not be accepted. Photos with watermarks or signatures may also be disqualified.

Please note that you need to ensure that the country your photo was taken in is entered correctly on your competition entry form and is not the country that you are from or the country of the prize you are entering to win. Entries with incorrect information in this regard may be disqualified.

Finally, please note that entries with inappropriate images and written content, and entries that seek to mention or promote other organisations may be removed at the discretion of the Promoter.

Displaying your Photo & Name

Photo entries that are approved will then be displayed on our website for others to view. In addition, the country where the photo was taken, the reason why you have chosen the site/natural feature as your world wonder, as well any further comments about the photo that you entered, will be displayed. Regarding privacy, the only information displayed will be your first name and country of origin and the tour you have selected to win. Under no circumstances will the Promoter share any additional personal details provided by you when entering the Competition.

Your Privacy
