Soludos and Oyster's Endless Summer Photo Competition

Win a trip to NYC and the Hamptons!

Imagine an endless summer. Waking up every day and heading to the beach. Spending the day soaking up the sun. Sipping cider late into the night. Waking up and doing it all over again the next day (all while never being hungover from said cider!). Well, we're in cahoots with Soludos and on the search for the ultimate photo that captures those chilled summer vibes; the kind of photo that makes you wish you were there and provides a glimmer of hope in the middle of those dark and dreary winter days. The prize on offer for capturing the perfect summer is a perfect New York summer vacation, including a few days to explore the city that never sleeps, before going to the Hamptons to party and hang at the beach. Plus, there are many more prizes on offer that could make your summer that little bit better - like pairs of Soludos and Oyster magazine subscriptions. The Grand Prize includes two return economy flights (excluding taxes) from any Australian capital city to New York JFK (date to be confirmed by winner), two nights hotel accommodation in NYC, five day car rental hire, and four nights hotel accommodation in Montauk - a total value of $12,000!

What are we looking for?

Simple: Make us wish we were there. We'll give you extra marks for creativity, style and good (mainly clean) fun. We want photos that we can use and celebrate.

How do you enter?

Submit your entries via the dedicated Tumblr site.

Please make sure you have read the How to Win page as well as the Terms and Conditions - in particular, the rules about original photos and your right to submit them. The winner and their guest must also be 21 years of age or over at the time of travel. The competition closes at 5pm AEDST on Monday 5 March, 2011. Sadly the Grand Prize of the NYC trip is only available to those in Australia or New Zealand. However, we are looking for great photos from everywhere, so if you live outside of AU/NZ you can still win shoes and Oyster subscriptions (phew!) - just make sure you tag the appropriate box when submitting.

Photos that hit the spot go on the Soludos Tumblr site, where people can vote for their favorites. The most Facebook and Tumblr love puts you in the mix for weekly and monthly prizes. The Grand Prize will be based on Facebook and Tumblr votes, along with a judgment by Soludos and the Oyster editorial panel.

So:

  • Submit your Endless Summer images at soludos.tumblr.com or via endlesssummer@soludos.com. You may submit as many images as you would like.
  • In the captions please include your name, where and when it was taken and why you think this is the perfect summer image.
  • The Grand Prize (of a trip to New York and the Hamptons) is available only to residents of Australia and New Zealand.
  • Use a valid email address upon submitting so we can contact you if you win.
  • You must accept the Tumblr Submission Terms as well as the Terms and Conditions of the competition.

Get snapping now!
