Best Beaches Sandbox

 

reading-on-beach

 

 

Help us find the most beautiful beach in the world, and you could win one of five iPads.

The rules are simple.

First: 

Next: Tweet a photo that is at least 1000px wide of your favorite beach @FlightNetwork using the hashtag #mostbeautifulbeach. Tell us where the beach is and why you love it!

Then: Tell your friends to come and vote for your photo =>  

How it works: The 50 photos that receive the most votes will proceed to the judging round, in which a panel of five beach experts will choose the top 20 photos. Of those 20 photos, five will be randomly chosen as the winners and the people who submitted them will each win an iPad.

The Fine Print: Entrants may only enter photos that they have taken and the rights to. All entrants will maintain full ownership of their photos, but also give FlightNetwork.com permission to publish that photo on FlightNetwork.com and to post it to their social media accounts. Any entrant who is caught entering a photo that was not taken by them, or to which they do not own the copyright, will be disqualified.

How this works for us at FlightNetwork.com

If an entrant tweets this


 
Then we post this:
