Mynatour Ecotourism Travel Blog Contest Invites Best Practices and Sustainable Holiday Stories

The Only Footprint You Leave Is Your Story

Mynatour Ecotourism ContestMynatour ecotourism community sponsored by WHL.travel is launching the Ecotourism Travel Blog Contest, an innovative competition inviting travelers to share their travel blog in order to promote green travel and ecotourism best practices. The idea of the contest is to promote ecotourism and responsible tourism through a travel blog competition where the audience is involved in electing the best ecotourism story.

 

"Tell me, I'll forget. Show me, I may remember. But involve me and I'll understand" - Rabindranath Tagore

 

Users will be able to upload their holiday experience, evaluate how they have been eco-friendly on their holiday or how to improve their experience towards a more sustainable level in the future.

How the Ecotourism Travel Blog Contest Works

Participants will be required to join the Mynatour ecotourism community to take part in the contest. To allow everyone to express his/her best way the travel blog will include the possibility to enter a text of max 1000 words, 1 main photo and max 4 additional images. A specific area of the travel blog (250 words) will be dedicated to evaluate their best ecotourism practices "on the road". Furthermore if they have been on a normal tour competitors will be able to provide in the same section tips or thoughts about how the destination or they can improve with eco friendly practices. Most importantly, the contest will allow participants to vote for their favorite travel blog.

 

In fact players will have the opportunity and tools to share their travel blog on their social media platforms. Visitors and friends will be able to vote to their favorite travel blogs via facebook.
