Brazil Tourism Board Launches Facebook ContestJuly 1, 2011 By: Joe Pike
In an effort to highlight Brazil as one of the world’s top tourism destinations, Embratur, the Brazil tourism board, today launched a promotional contest on Facebook that asks consumers to upload their pictures of Brazil for a chance to win a Brazil-themed prize.
The promotion, titled “Your Pic Here,” will showcase the top eight photos on the “Visit Brazil” Facebook page. Consumers interested in participating in the contest must “like” the “Visit Brazil” page (www.facebook.com/visitbrasil) and submit a photo taken in Brazil.
One photo can be uploaded at each of the six stages of the contest for consideration over the following dates: July 1 - July 3; July 9 - July 13; July 19 - July 23; July 29 - August 2; August 8 - August 12 and August 18 - August 22.
Facebook users can vote on their favorite photos during each of the six stages. Winners will receive the “Brazil Kit” and each winner will have their photos published for 10 days on the FanPage portion of the “Visit Brazil” Facebook page. The “Brazil Kit” includes a copy of the book Brasil – Terra de todas as cores (Brazil, The Land of All Colors), a backpack, a toiletry case and laptop case.
