RULES FOR THE 1st TOURIST PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST
ASOCIACIÓN ALICANTE POR EL TURISMO DE CRUCEROS
1st EDITION JUNE 2020
(Update January 1st due to extension of term)
Asociación Alicante por el Turismo de Cruceros [Alicante for Cruise Tourism Association] promotes and organizes the 1st Edition of the Tourist Photography Contest related to Cruise Tourism with destination Alicante Costablanca.
The purpose of this international contest is to give a boost to #alicantecostablanca and to make it known, as well as to enhance the memories of our land and thus recover the arrival of visitors in our city and province.
The birth of this idea was inspired by the outstanding number of inexhaustible resources that #alicantecostablanca offers not only to Tourism, and especially to the cruise passenger who visits us and becomes a faithful prescriber of our environment, but also to the privileged conditions provided by #alicantecostablanca both for investment and for social and economic dynamization.
Any individual older than 18 can sign up for this photographic contest, with the exception of jury members, as well as members of the entity that organizes this contest and their close relatives, provided that they abide by its rules: https://alicantecruisetourism.com/rules-i-photo-contest-extension/
The main theme will be the images freely understood by their author as referring to a visit to Alicante Costablanca in the past, or those recorded in future arrivals until the end date of this Contest, which either show their arrival or departure at/from the Alicante Port Cruise Terminal, together with produced images that relate to any area or corner of Alicante Costablanca, particularly regarding the dissemination and promotion of its gastronomy, cultural heritage, commerce, hotel stays, transport, festivities, beaches, natural spaces, customs, handicrafts, routes, nautical activities…; specifying the date when it was taken, the place, the name of the cruise ship on which the arrival took place and the Shipping Company, always and in any case, when choosing one of the two modalities: Option A and Option B.
