Your photos inspired us and others, sparked a dialogue, and are beautiful images of the amazing places and people you visited on Reality Tours.
Meet the Popular Choice Winner
Voting for the Popular Choice winner has now closed, and we are happy to announce that Marie Bodnar has won the Popular Choice contest with a total of 63 votes (“like” on Facebook) by midnight on April 13th for her captivating image of a child in Afghanistan. From the comments section on Facebook (where the photo contest took place) one person noted that “you just get drawn in and wonder what the child is thinking.”
Congratulations Marie! You’ll be receiving your special prize soon; a Fair Trade gift package!
Who’s on Second?
In close second for the Popular Choice contest were beautiful photos from Shannon DeCelle from a Food First and Global Exchange Reality Tour to Bolivia.
Shannon describes one of her photos: “He was having fun sharing his flower with me. We explored the area near Tunupa, a dormant volcano (distant left in photo). I was overwhelmed and felt closer to everything for that moment.”
Want to check out all the photo submissions? You can see all of the photos on the Reality Tours Facebook page. If you haven’t had the chance already, we invite you to browse through the stunning photo entries.
