Instagram contest: aka when sunsets have their charm

ApeinstagramYou are in the roadstead, the sun is preparing to go to sleep, the sky is changing color. It is one of the most beautiful moments for those who go to sea. Looking at some of the photos you took for our 2014 TAG Heuer Cruise GDV Instagram contest , capturing the passion of life on board, you agree with us! We give you two small examples above, in shots by @khaderbhai and @elenapelliccione.

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 hashtag #crocieragdv2014 and 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 hashtag#crocieragdv2014 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.

The only limit is your imagination. Under sail, in the roadstead, in port, while preparing dinner or in the middle of a dive, just to name a few examples, what embodies your passion for cruising, the sea and sailing can be the subject of images. For inspiration, then, why don’t you go look back at the photos that participated last summer?
