3rd Annual Remarkable Photo Contest!
Just a quick note to let you know that the Perceptive Travel Remarkable Photo contest is now open, with entries accepted through December 31. See the whole scoop here.
We’ve got a good batch of prizes to give away for the best web-ready photos. We’re giving away a compact super-zoom Casio camera that can take 1,000 photos on one charge, a pair of sunglasses from Tifosi Optics, a portable travel safe from Pacsafe, and a few goodies for honorable mentions.
The rules are simple and there’s no entry fee, so pick your best photo(s) and follow the instructions to enter.
And now for a commercial message. Please consider buying some of your holiday presents through our links instead of just going straight to Amazon, REI, or National Geographic—-or just booking direct with Orbitz,. It won’t cost you any more and you help keep our writers off their Ramen noodles.
Tim Leffel, Editor
“Perceptive Travel is an online travel magazine that is home to interesting and award-winning stories from some of the best travel writers on the planet. It wins top awards on a regular basis and is a staple of “best travel writing” anthologies. Each monthly webzine issue is filled with unique perspectives from around the globe, written by book authors who see beyond the surface. Travel destinations, books, and music are chosen on the whim of the writer and editor, not selected based on what tourism board, publishing company, or hotel chain is spending the most on advertising. Come here for authentic travel tales about interesting places, not for top-10 lists and advertorials.
We try to put out great stories without annoying you to death along the way. But if you want to click on the banners or text ads that interest you to keep the hosting bill paid, we will silently bow down in gratitude.)
The editor spearheading this project is Tim Leffel, author of The World’s Cheapest Destinations and Make Your Travel Dollars Worth a Fortune, plus the co-author of Traveler’s Tool Kit: Mexico and Central America. He has contributed to dozens of magazines and newspapers over a 18-year period. You can see regular rants on his popular Cheapest Destinations travel blog.”
