December’s “Christmas Around The World” Photo Contest Winner: A Ho Chi Minh City Santa Hat

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

It never ceases to amaze us when two people are on the same page, let alone 8 million. We learned from our December photo contest at our Flickr group, that this is exactly the case every December in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City. Our Christmas-themed contest winner comes from AMASC and is titled “Balloon Gazing.” […]

“World Festivals” November Photo Contest Winner: A Carnival Starlet

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

What is not to love about Carnival? Let’s be real, if Carnival lasted 365 days a year, we would all live in a better place. Fortunately, for Gabriela Bhaskar, she had her camera in hand for the San Francisco version of Rio’s greatest gift to the world: the Carnival parade. Honestly, Gabriela, you had us at […]

Friday, October 1, 2010

This month’s contest winner comes from the incredible colors of the iconic Taj Mahal. Congratulations to Craig Kassover and his incredible shot that went far beyond the cliche Taj shot to capture September’s contest crown.

The Expeditioner’s “Animals Of The World” August Photography Contest Winner

Thursday, September 2, 2010

This month’s contest theme stood out as soon as we ironed out our schedule. The world is full of wonder, and certainly the animal kingdom is one source of endless awe. That being said, we would like to congratulate Kimondo as this month’s winner, for the dramatic shot titled: “Thirsty Elephants.” Here’s what she had […]

August Photo Contest Finalists: Pigeons And Intrigue

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

This past month’s photo contest theme was “Urban Jungle,” and what’s more urban than pigeons and mystery? A city is not just its interesting architecture, cultural idiosyncrasies and masses of people, but someplace where unique characters live in the shadows of tall buildings and a place where the wild things have adapted. A country’s rural […]

The Expeditioner’s “Urban Jungle” Travel Photo Winner

Monday, August 9, 2010

This month’s gem comes from Europe’s second northernmost capital city, Helsinki, Finland. Receiving the most first place votes, “Flash Flood” makes me feel like I’m in a movie. The kind of movie I’m standing next to a phone booth in a long trench coat, under an umbrella with a rain soaked damsel on my arm. […]

June Photo Contest Finalists: In Your Face!

Friday, July 9, 2010

You may or may not remember the landscape and the architecture, but you will never forget a face — even if they are only in pictures. Last month’s photo theme, “Faces in Places,” has left an impression. There is something fascinating about a picture of a face. It makes the viewer curious about the story […]

The Expeditioner’s “Faces In Places” Photo Contest Winner

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

There’s just something about the people that inhabit this world we call home, isn’t there?  This month’s “Faces in Places” intriguing winner, “Wise Man,” comes from a trip through Varanasi, India. The photographer, Monica, says this about the shot: Varanasi, being a very chaotic place, I was amazed by this man who was just sitting there […]

The Expeditioner’s May Photo Contest Winner: Landscape

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

Our first themed photo contest of “Landscapes,” has absolutely blown us away. Now that all the final votes are in, we’d like to congratulate Kimondo for the shot, “Camels in Erg Chebbi.” I’m learning with these contests each month, that sometimes magic just simply happens. This photo is no exception. After being punished throughout a trek in […]

The Expeditioner’s April Travel Photo Contest Winner

Friday, May 7, 2010

It’s a car, it’s a bug, it’s an Olympic celebration on four wheels. Underneath all that, we’ve discovered it’s even more than any of those things. We are psyched to announce Jules Andre Brown as the winner of our April Travel Photo Contest with his photo titled, “Love Bug.”  As Jules explains: This was shot at the Vancouver Olympics, just […]
