Our popular Photo of the Month contest is now open for July. After the submission deadline passes we’ll be putting up a shortlist of three or four of our favourite India photos – with links to their owners – and asking you to pick a winner.
And while the contest is mainly for fun and inspiration, we’ll still be sending an Amazon voucher to the chosen winner!
This month our theme is inspired by the monsoon. During the monsoon season nature comes alive in India with waterfalls at their most spectacular and lush landscapes turning a vibrant green. The monsoon season in India inspires creativity and is a great time to explore India’s tourist attractions without the crowds. Your photo submissions don’t have to be taken during the monsoon season but should be inspired by it. Some suggestions include:
- Green landscapes
- Reflections in water
- Escaping the rain
- Dramatic, stormy sky over well known sights
You can enter in four ways:
On Facebook: Just post your image to the wall as usual
On Flickr: Add your image to the Photo of the Month group
On Twitter: Tweet the image and include our Twitter name @indianhomestays plus the hashtag #indiaphoto
By Email: Send your picture to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for entries is 19 July 2010. Good luck everyone – and thanks for taking part.
