Tourists can win free travel to Machu Picchu


LIMA, Peru – Tourists all around the world will be able to return all-expenses paid to the Incan citadel by participating in the photography contest named “I was in Machu Picchu” until July 31.

Commemorating the scientific discovery of Machu Picchu, national and international tourists have to send pictures of their visit to the mentioned citadel to the web page of the contest organized by Quimera HD with the support of Peru’s Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur).

These pictures will compete in seven categories: People, Funny, Traveling, Mystic, Landscapes and Nature, Architecture, and Ancients. The photos must be digitalized before being sent to the contest, which selection period began in May this year.

The prize granted to the seven winners will be a new visit to Machu Picchu with all-expenses paid for two persons, from anywhere in the world, during six days and five nights and one travel grant worth US$500.

Participants and voters will also be included to win different prizes such as digital cameras and alpaca goods.
