The thing I love most about travelling is discovering new cultures and, as you may have noticed, cuisines! And, of course, I love taking lots of photographs which I hope capture the essence of a country. I’m sure a lot of you feel the same and I am inviting you all to take part in this photography competition on the theme ‘Discovering new countries, cultures and cuisines’.
To enter all you have to do is…
1. Please email me at [email protected] or leave a link in a comment below to up to 3 of your photographs that you think reflect the theme ‘Discovering new countries, cultures and/or cuisines’.
2. Please label your photographs with the location of where they were taken (town/region and country).
3. The photographs will be judge individually and the winner chosen by a panel of judges.
4. Deadline for entries is the midday, (British Summer Time , GMT +1), on Sunday 21st April 2013.
5.The photographs must be taken by the entrant and by entering you are agreeing to my re-posting your images onto this Pinterest board, Facebook and ‘Travel with Kat’.
6. If you would like me to link to your blog, Facebook page etc please leave up to two links with your entry.
7. The competition is open to everyone, no matter where you live, just as long as you have an email address that the voucher can be sent to!
If you are a blogger you may like to write a post about the competition and link to this page but this is not a requirement of the competition. If you’d like news about my latest posts and forthcoming adventures as well as details of the winning entry and any future competitions and giveaways, please subscribe to my newsletter.
Please note that, following concerns that were raised that people could create Pinterest accounts to re-pin their images, the rules have been amended to the above.

I just saw this; the deadline was April 2013. Is there another contest coming up ?
By the way, I also participated in Blogville, Emilia Romagna, 2012.
Hi Carola, I’ve no plans to hold another one just yet but maybe next year. An easy way to keep an eye out for that would be to sign up to my monthly newsletter. I promise not to fill your inbox!
What size would you like for viewing, judging and displaying the photos?
The images will be displayed and judge from the Pinterest boardhttp://pinterest.com/travelwithkat/discovering-new-countries-cultures-cuisines-compet/
Apparently the minimum size is 81 x 81 pixels but something around 500px wide is better. I believe they are displayed at 554px wide on the pin page if they are landscape images.
Sounds great! I’m in! 🙂
Excellent! Looking forward to seeing your photographs 🙂
Just had a peep at your website. Looks great. Time for a coffee and a bit of a read I think!
What a fabulous contest – am going to get searching through my shots!
Can’t wait to see what you enter! There’s some lovely photographs on the board already.
Great contest Kathryn! I just sent you my three photos 🙂
Excellent! Thank you and boy do they look yummy!
I have sent you two photos of mine for the entry. Hope to see them up very soon. Let me know if I have missed anything.
Thanks Shalu. I’ll let you know when all the photos are on display on a Pinterst board with links to your site so hopefully it will bring you some new visitors.
What a great contest!
Thanks for entering Andi. Great choices!
Any or all of those venues would do nicely, Kat!
I’ll see what I can do.
Thanks Jo. They do look great don’t they.
If I win, I definitely want to return to Sri Lanka, what a great vacation give away.
