Photo Contest Terms
Who Can Enter:
Any traveller* on a Butterfield & Robinson trip is eligible to enter the 2019 TRAVELLER PHOTO CONTEST (the “2019 Contest”). There is a limit of five entries per traveller, per trip taken. Only photos that have not previously been entered in a B&R Traveller Photo contest may be submitted.
What to Enter:
Contest available on Instagram only. Each photo must be accompanied by the following information: @butterfieldtravel and #mybnr tagged in the photo caption. We also encourage you to describe the moment that the photo was taken or your favourite memory of the trip.
Only images taken on Butterfield & Robinson trips within THREE years of the contest closing deadline are eligible for entry (trips that occurred in 2017, 2018 or 2019).
Each traveller may submit a maximum of five photos per trip and may submit photos for more than one trip.
Deadline for submissions for the 2019 Contest is December 31, 2019. Those entries submitted after that time may be considered for use in various B&R publications, or for any subsequent photo contest, but will not be eligible to win the prizes for the 2019 Contest. Judging will be conducted by a panel of qualified judges including experts in the field of photography and Butterfield & Robinson personnel.
Entries will be judged on artistic expression, technical composition, sense of place, and capturing the spirit of what it means to “slow down to see the world”. This is a contest of pure skill for purposes of the Criminal Code and the Competition Act (Canada).
Butterfield & Robinson does not accept responsibility for the loss of or damage to submitted work. Butterfield & Robinson reserves full publishing and advertising rights to all photo entries.
By entering the contest, entrants acknowledge that the promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Instagram, and release Instagram from any and all responsibility.
A $3,000 USD Butterfield & Robinson Trip Credit will be awarded for the best eligible image submitted. A $1,000 USD Butterfield & Robinson Trip Credit will be awarded to the runner-up for second best eligible image submitted.
How to Submit:
Entries must be posted to your personal Instagram page, tagging @butterfieldtravel and #mybnr in the caption.
In consideration for participating in the contest, participants agree that Butterfield & Robinson Inc. (“B&R”), or its designate, may use for commercial purposes any photographic or digitally recorded images (“Images”) submitted. For each image used (other than for promoting the 2019 Contest or any other photo contest on our website, by email and on social media), the 2019 Contest participant (“the Participant”) submitting the applicable Image will be awarded a one-time $250 trip credit (non-transferrable, valid for two years from date of issuance), in consideration of a perpetual royalty-free license for all uses and reproductions of the applicable Image.
By submitting an image or photograph, during or after the contest duration, each Participant grants to B&R an exclusive, unlimited perpetual license for all uses and reproduction of all winning photographs or images. Images may be considered for use in various B&R publications.
Each Participant represents and warrants to B&R that: each submitted Image is original; each Image has not been published or used for a commercial purpose; he or she owns all copyright and other property rights in and to all Images submitted by him or her for consideration in the 2019 Contest. Each Participant waives all moral rights in each Image submitted by him or her. Each Participant agrees to execute all reasonable documentation, at B&R’s cost, to give effect to the foregoing including any reasonable instrument of assignment and consents to his or her name and/or likeness being used, published and reproduced by B&R.
The Contest prizes are offered subject to B&R’s standard terms and conditions, which can be found in our main brochure, on our website at www.butterfield.com, or upon request. Trip credits are applicable to any B&R Trip. Trip credits are valid for two years from the date of issue and are not transferable. The winners are responsible for the balance of their trip price, air travel, insurance, any relevant taxes, and expenses not specifically included in the B&R trip to which trip credit prizes are applied. Reservations are subject to availability at the time of booking. B&R reserves the right to cancel the trip on which any reservation has been made, in which case an affected prizewinner may make a reservation on another trip. Prizes are not transferable or convertible to cash. Prizes have no cash value. Trip Credit must be applied to travel completed by August 31, 2021. Employees or contractors of B&R are not eligible to participate in the Contest.
Contest prizes are offered subject to the winners’ agreement that they and their travel companion(s), if any,) will sign B&R’s then-applicable Acknowledgement of Risk, Release and Indemnity provided. Failure to sign this document will eliminate a winner’s entitlement to receive the prize. A winner’s acceptance of a prize shall be good and sufficient consideration for the provision of the Acknowledgement of Risk, Release and Indemnity to B&R by the prizewinner and his/her travelling companion.
*Employees or contractors of B&R and professional photographers engaged by Butterfield & Robinson are excluded.
