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.

Photo Selection:

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.

Contest Prizes:

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.

Fine Print:

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”) that submitted 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 each Participant grants to B&R an exclusive, unlimited perpetual license for all uses and reproduction of all winning Images.  Each 2019 Contest winner hereby releases B&R, and each of its contest judges, and affiliates of the foregoing and all of their respective directors, officers, owners, partners, employees, agents, representatives, successors and assigns (collectively, the “Releasees”) from any liability in connection with the 2019 Contest or the prize.

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 and that each Image submitted does not infringe upon the intellectual property or other statutory or common law rights of any third party including any person shown in an Image. 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, 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 and contractors of B&R, and professional photographers engaged by 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. Failure to sign this document will void 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.

By entering the 2019 Contest, each Participant consents to the collection, use and disclosure of his or her personal information for the purposes of administering the 2019 Contest. By accepting a prize, each winner consents to the collection, use and disclosure to the public of his or her name, address (city, province or equivalent), voice, statements and photographs or other likenesses for publicity purposes in connection with the 2019 Contest in any media or formats, including but not limited to the Internet, without further notice, permission or compensation. Personal information will not otherwise be used or disclosed without consent.  Each winner will be contacted by “Direct” message on Instagram and must respond within 7 days after that Direct message shall have been sent and shall provide all personal information as shall be reasonably required by B&R for administration of the 2019 Contest and the award of a prize.

Failure to comply with these Photo Contest Terms within the time provided will disqualify a Participant.

All decisions of the B&R, or any contest judge as designated by it, are final and binding in all matters relating to the 2019 Contest. No correspondence will be entered into except with selected entrants. Contest is subject to all applicable federal, provincial, state and municipal laws and is void where prohibited. In the event of a dispute regarding who submitted an Image, the Image, in B&R’s sole discretion: i) may be disqualified from eligibility in the 2019 Contest; or ii) may be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the Instagram account on which the Image was originally submitted at the time of entry, provided that account holder is an eligible Traveller.   Any use of automated devices for 2019 Contest entry is prohibited.

This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Instagram. Each Participant acknowledges that he or she is providing information and all Image entries to B&R and not to Instagram or its affiliates.  By submitting Image entries to the 2019 Contest, each Participant releases Instagram from any claims or damages related to or arising from the 2019 Contest.

*Employees and contractors of B&R and professional photographers engaged by Butterfield & Robinson are excluded.
