Celebrating the Moments of 2023 – Photo & Story Contest!

By Wild Women Expeditions | January 3, 2024

2023 has come and gone and what an incredible travel year it was! We want to take the opportunity at the beginning of this new year to celebrate those precious, magical moments within our Wild Women community by launching a photo and story contest! We’re offering a $1000 (USD)* travel voucher that can be applied to any 2024 and 2025 Wild Women Expeditions trip!

This is not a professional photography or writing competition! We want your casual, candid pics of women bent in half with laughter, eating soggy sandwiches in kayaks and lopsided handstands. We want toothy llama selfies, huddled group shots under umbrellas, peace signs at Everest Base Camp and downward dogs in Bali! This year, we want your story too! We want to hear about that amazing bond you made with a new friend, that emotional moment that surprised you or the wild place that took your breath away. What story do you find yourself telling friends and family over and over again? Because this is contest revolves around pure fun and celebration, there’s no word count but we ask that you include at least one paragraph about your trip with your photo submission.

We want to see and feel those smiles that only a Wild Women trip can spark! And thank you for taking the time to celebrate you and us with the Wild Women community.

You must submit your entries by January 30th, 2024.

On January 31st, 2023, we will conduct a random draw from all entries. $1,000 USD*! Where have you been? Where will you go?

We don’t like to make pesky rules, but, here are a sticky few:

  1. Your photos must be from a Wild Women Expeditions trip that departed in 2023 (we cannot accept any pre or post-trip images) and you must be the photographer!
  2. Your photo MUST include a woman (or women) in it! Yes, we love birds and sunsets and foodie shots but, we want to see smiling faces!
  3. You need to tell us your story! What’s happening in the photo? Where was it taken? What was your moved to tears moment? Tell us in one gushing paragraph, minimum!
  4. Wild Women staff and guides are not permitted to enter because, well, we get to go on trips already. It’s our job! We’re living the dream!
  5. By entering, you will retain copyright to your photos but agree to grant Wild Women permission to potentially use your images on our social media platforms, advertising and/or promotional purposes, marketing emails and official website.
  6. This prize cannot be redeemed for cash or applied to an upcoming trip that is already paid for. However, you can transfer the prize to your BFF, sister, mom, wife or another Wild Woman!
