The contest is open to everyone (all you need is a free Instagram account) and runs from August 1-31, 2015. To participate, all you need to do is upload photos (yes, you can participate with as many images as you want) to Instagram using the hashtags #crocieragdv2015 and #dontcrackunderpressure by tagging @giornaledellavela in your photographs.
We repeat, there is no limit to the number of images each participant can post on Instagram to participate.
We also give you a tip: in addition to the hashtags #crocieragdv2015 and #dontcrackunderpressure add as many hashtags as possible. This will give maximum visibility to your photos and a chance for other users to click the mythical “Like” button. Why is it important? Because in choosing the winners we will also take into account the number of Likes the photo has received.
WHAT, HOW AND WHEN TO PHOTOGRAPH
The only limit is your imagination. On a boat, even on the most beautiful vacation, there are times when you may find yourself under pressure: perhaps because of an unforeseen flailing, but also because of the opposite (the tremendous becalming!). Being under pressure, however, can also have a positive value and push us to give our best, never give up and push our limits. Or, will you be able to finish that gargantuan appetizer in the cockpit or bring the entire galley on board?
For inspiration, why don’t you go and review the photos that participated in past editions? Simply type, in the search section of Instagram, the hashtag #crocieragdv2013 and #crocieragdv2014 and over 3500 sources of inspiration will appear! Or you can review the great gallery that we published last year right here! We told you that the “TAG Heuer Cruise GDV 2015” contest runs from August 1 to 31, 2015, but if you are among the lucky ones who roamed the seaside in June or July, don’t tear your hair out! All you need to do to be among the challengers is to post the photo in the month of August.
FIND OUT WHAT YOU CAN WIN WITH OUR #CROCIERAGDV2015 CONTEST
The best photos will be chosen by the editorial staff, taking into consideration the quality, originality and the number of likes the image has received. Thanks to our partner TAG Heuer, the winner will receive an Aquaracer 300M Calibre 5.
The second and third place winners will instead enjoy special “#DONTCRACKUNDERPRESSURE TAG HEUER” kits.
Plus this year there is a great new feature! The top three finishers will also win a weekend for two (Sept. 25-27, 2015 with port of embarkation at Marina di Scarlino) in a reserved double cabin in the Tuscan archipelago aboard a 2009 Sun Odyssey 44i (4 cabin + 2 WC) refitted this year. And to enjoy the cruise with peace of mind, the prize also includes the skipper! A special gift thanks to Globe Sailor, through its partner 43rd Parallel. Now come on, get ready to photograph!
To participate, use the hashtags #crocieragdv2015 and #dontcrackunderpressure by tagging @giornaledellavela in your photographs
