Phenomenal Photo Fridays Photo Contest

Calling all travel photogs, This is our second week of our weekly Phenomenal Photo Fridays photo contest. Send in your best travel photo that represents the week's topic by midnight Thursday, March 27th, and we will choose a winner and post their image on our blog. What's more, we will choose three outstanding photos from previous contests and publish them in our next issue for the world to admire. Creativity is encouraged. The winner will not only go down in history as a totally awesome photographer, but will also have a chance to be featured in an Immersion Travel Magazine issue!

Our second Phenomenal Photo Friday contest topic is... drum roll:

Clean Water

This topic was inspired by World Water Day, celebrated on March 22, and the Travelers Against Plastic campaign that works tirelessly to inspire travelers to fill reusable water bottles instead of buying bottled water.


1. Images must be genuine. No Photoshop editing that takes out, adds in or changes anything that was in the original scene. (We have a killer photo editor who can tell if images have been tampered with, so no funny business.)

2. Images must be in focus and must be no more than 1,000 pixels in length on the longest side.

3. No animals, creepy crawlies, plants, or humans can be harmed for the purpose of creating the photograph. (Be cool.)

4. You are allowed to submit 1 image every week and you must include: your name (no pseudonyms please), your age (you must be over 18 to enter), a caption for the imagethe location the image was taken, and your jpeg image. These materials should be submitted by email to Your subject must say "Phenomenal Photo Fridays Photo Contest (weekly topic)"

5. Our Creative Director, Christopher Scotti, will be determining who makes the cut and will post results Friday nights.

6. Even if you don't win, your photograph may be selected to be featured in an issue. Please keep a full sized RAW or Jpeg file as we may request one in the event we decide to feature your image.
