Baby SkiingGlobal Connections Rewards Members for Great Vacation Photography

Nothing celebrates a vacation like great photo memories. From selfies on cell phones to sophisticated zoom lens digital cameras, we all like to record our trips and share with our friends. For Global Discovery Vacation Members those “pics” really paid off.

The contest, “Shoot for the Stars”, began in 2005 with just 30 entries. This year, Global Discovery Vacations and Vacation Quest Members submitted 900 photos in three categories: Family & Friends; Landscape and Wacky & Wild.

Global Connections, Inc. (GCI), the highly respected developer, travel club fulfillment and service provider has distributors and sales centers located throughout the United States. The national company’s demographic and geographic profile was evident in the numerous photographs submitted for the contest. Prize winning entries came from all over the U.S. including Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Idaho, and Texas to name but a few. Photos ran the gamut of the greatest vacation spots on earth including Paris, the Grand Cayman Islands, Canada and Italy, among other locations.

According to Stacey Gregory, Creative Director of Global Connections, Inc. “Members were awarded an array of prizes totaling more than $3500 including a $500 gift certificate for any Global product as first prize in each category. Second prize in each category was an annual Travel Club renewal fee paid and third was a one-bedroom condo week vacation.”
