2022 is going to be a summer worth celebrating! With restrictions easing and everybody getting out again, travelling the world far and wide, and getting on their much-needed holidays abroad, now feels like the perfect time to relaunch Minto’s travel competition…
A huge success back in 2019 with entries coming all the way from New York to Australia, the Minto travel competition is simple: all you have to do is pack a Minto product of any kind whether it’s a mug or a charger into your suitcase and send us a snap from wherever your travels take you – our favourite photo EVERY month, wins! Running across the summer months, we will be selecting a winner in May, June, July, August AND September with all winners getting a very special Minto goodie bag, but that’s not all -
Everyone who sends in a picture from their adventures will have the exclusive chance to feature in our 2023 calendar!
Stuck for inspiration? We are on the hunt for the most creative and innovative photos EVERY MONTH that bring the summer heat whether you’re up a mountain, by the pool, or in front of some iconic landmarks.
So, if you’re heading away to soak in the sun this summer, make sure you show us where you’ve been and what Minto product you’ve been using.
The idea of the 2022 Minto Summer calendar competition is to find the best locations to take Minto branded products. We’re looking for the best photos featuring Minto products from stunning destinations to use throughout the competition, and then our 2023 calendar. The competition will run throughout the summer holidays months (May, June, July, August) and we will be looking for entries that are not just the not just a great photo, but a great location too.
One goodie bag per winner per month.
Entrants can only win for one month and one goodie bag.
Entrants may submit up to 5 photos in total. They should be submitted in JPEG format to our email address firstname.lastname@example.org
The final aspect ratio to be used for the calendar will be almost 1:1 so, while images may be submitted in both landscape and portrait, they will be cropped to the centre of the submission.
Image enhancement is permitted but should not be used excessively. We will not accept superimposed or composite images. We reserve the right to exclude images that have been altered excessively.
The competition is open to ALL and entrants under the age of 18 require the consent of a parent or guardian to enter. (This must be provided in writing with valid identification by email.)
This competition is open to amateur photographers. We consider any entrant who earns more than 50% of their annual income from photograph sales to be a professional photographer and not eligible to win.
The competition closes at 00:01 on Thursday 1st September 2022. Entries received after this date will not be considered. We accept no responsibility for any problem with delivery of entries. Proof of sending is not proof of receipt.
All entries will be considered for the 2023 calendar and will be assessed on location and the quality of image by the digital design team. Any images that do not meet the quality expected for printed images will be discarded. The best 200 photos (maximum) chosen on quality alone will go forward for judging.
Entries will be judged by the whole Minto team to assess the quality of the images compares to the quality expected for printing.
The 4 goodie bags across the 4 months the competition is running will all be the same and will feature the same Minto items.
Those chosen to be in the 2023 calendar will each receive two 2023 calendars upon their printing in December 2022.
All entries must be the original work of the entrant and must not infringe the rights of any other party. The entrants must be the sole owner of copyright in all photographs entered and the photos must not feature identifiable persons. Entrants must not have breached any laws when taking their photographs.
All photographs must be originals. Entries that have been found to have been entered into other competitions or published in any other form will not be counted.
Entrants will retain copyright in the photographs that they submit but by entering the competition entrants grant Minto Branding LTD the right to publish their photographs in any format in perpetuity. Entrants, whose photographs are one of the 4 winners across the 4 months, as well as the final 12 agreed to go in the 2023 calendar, also agree to take part in post – competition publicity.
While we make every effort to credit photographers, including in printed reproductions of their work, we cannot guarantee that every use of the photographs will include the photographers' names. Entrants must ensure that the photograph is not subsequently used to publicise or promote companies, individuals, organisations or causes.
By entering, entrants will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by these rules and we reserve the right to exclude any entry from the competition at any time.
We reserve the right to cancel this competition or alter any of the rules at any stage, if deemed necessary, and if circumstances arise outside of our control.
If the winner is unable to be contacted after reasonable attempts have been made, any prizes will be offered to a runner up or repurposed in future competitions.
