The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism is launching a “Really Better Vacation Contest” that will award complimentary Bahamas vacations in four categories to consumers who submit a photo or video of their favorite vacation experience via the "Better Vacation Contest" tab on the Bahamas Facebook page.
Through March 15, travelers can enter the contest by sending in a photo or video of their favorite vacation experience via the "Better Vacation Contest" tab on the Bahamas’ Facebook page. Winners will be selected for four categories -- family vacation, romantic escape, guy's adventure and girl's getaway -- and will win a one-week, all-expenses paid trip to the Bahamas.
Following the entry period, a panel of judges will select finalists in each category, who will film their “cast” showcasing why they should star in the next Bahamas campaign. Casting videos will be uploaded to the “Better Vacation Contest” tab, which can be viewed and “liked” by other consumers. Judges will interview finalists to select winners, taking fan feedback into consideration. The winning groups will travel to the Bahamas to enjoy the islands’ activities and accommodations. A documentary film crew and photography team will join the winning groups to capture their island getaway for consumer ads which will air late this summer.
