moorings logo4We are suckers for a photo contest, and this one recently caught our attention.  If there was ever an ideal backdrop that competes with a Backroads trip for stunning photographic possibilities, it's a Moorings sailing charter in the BVIs. And to celebrate 40 years of Moorings vacations, the company is sponsoring a Photo & Video contest. Top prize is a 7-day sailing charter, or a 7-day stateroom vacation for 2 on a Moorings crewed yatch in the smll sailboat atbaths bvi7BVIs. Second prize is 7-days of provisioning for 4 people and third prize is $500 credit towards a Moorings yatch charter.  Entries are due by June 1, 2009, 3 photos per person (see Photo Contest Rules).

So if you have ever charted a course through Sir Francis Drake Channel or plan to soon, send those winning photos to the folks at the Moorings - you might be glad you did.

x viet1To say the folks in the FotoBridge Community get around is one way to put it. From Antartica to Tibet, Machu Picchu to Galapagos, Tikal to Cape Town photography and travel go together like a memorable two-part harmony.  Jodi and Neil took this shot while riding down a rural road on their Backroads Honeymoon trip  not too long ago.  The photo, taken near a village in Vietnam, landed in the annual Backroads Photo Contest.  Of some 4,200 photos submitted of Backroads trips in 2008, this gem was selected in the top 25 competing for the Grand Prize.  The winner will be determined by online voting and announced on February 16, 2009.  Anyone can vote, and voting will automatically enter you in a drawing to win a $200 Patagonia MLC Suitcase.  So vote here for your favorite Backroads photograph and automatically enter to win the suitecase.
