Gather invites you to share your favorite vacation photos in the Gather Travel Essential (travel.gather.com). Each day from now until Sunday, October 12th, we'll randomly select one member to receive 100 Gather Points Â™ for their travel photo. But that's not all Â– after October 12th, the Gather Editorial Team will select their favorite travel photo to receive 1,000 Gather Points! They will also give away 500 Gather Points to a second member for writing their favorite comment on that winning photo.
How to participate:
- Between Monday, October 6th and Sunday, October 12th, 2008, post your favorite travel photos to Travel.gather.com. You may only post one photo per day as an entry to be eligible to earn the 100 or 1,000 Gather Points Â™ for this promotion. You must also include the word "travelphoto" as a tag to help us determine entries from non-entries. *
- Visit Travel.gather.com to comment as often as you like on your favorite travel photos. (You could win points!)
- Between October 6th through October 12th, Gather will randomly select one participant for each day to receive 100 Gather Points Â™.
- After October 12th, Gather Editorial will select their favorite from all the photos submitted. The member who posts it will receive 1,000 Gather Points Â™. Gather will also select their favorite comment on that winning photo. The writer of it will receive 500 Gather Points Â™.
