Win a trip for two to Tasmania!
If you enjoyed following the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Adventure 2008 to Tasmania, you probably wished you'd gone along.
Wish no more. Enter the team's Tasmanian Sweepstakes and you might be going on your own Tasmanian Adventure. But you get to bring along anyone else you like, instead of cramming into a Tasmanian tour bus with a bunch of photographers and programmers, like the team had to do.
There's just one prize in this sweepstakes, but it's a Grand Prize: a two-night trip for two to Tasmania, Australia (not the other one). Included is roundtrip airfare (economy class tickets) departing from either Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO) or New York (JFK) and arriving in Hobart/Launceston. Accommodations for two nights will be provided in Tasmania. You can tell your accountant that the approximate retail value of the Grand Prize is $4,598.
So how do you enter? We did some research on just that topic, interviewing Team Leader Mikkel Aaland at length recently.
Q. How do you enter this sweepstakes, Mikkel?
A. What?! Just leave your email address! No strings!!!
This avoids the problem of translating an essay into Tasmanian or finding Australian sponsors in case your bar bill exceeds your available funds.
There is a deadline, it turns out (or nobody would actually get the prize). The contest ends at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on May 31. But don't delay -- there's no point polishing up your email address.
Take a peek at the contest rules and pop over to the entry form.
And if you win (well, someone has to), don't forget to bring along your camera. "I mean, Tasmania is a great location for photographers," Mikkel told us. He must have meant the clean air (is it really the cleanest on the planet, as Jeff Pflueger wrote in his Tasmanian blog?), the photogenic people (which made Catherine Hall homesick for a place that wasn't even home) and the strange rituals (Bruce Dale attended both pirate weddings and pig slaughterings).
