July 05, 2012, 10:11 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Emirates Tours, specialists in tailor-made luxury holidays, has launched a photo competition in conjunction with leading camera manufacturer Nikon, offering entrants the chance to win a luxury holiday for two to Oman and a host of other prizes.
From the glistening atolls of the Maldives to close-up shots of wildlife on safari, Emirates Tours is looking for the most authentic photographs taken in any one of its six holiday regions.
The photographer of the best overall image will win a five night holiday for two to the five-star Six Senses Zighy Bay resort in Oman including return flights with Emirates, while the runner up will win a portable Nikon 1 V1 camera worth £800. Those snapping the best image of each of Emirates Tours' six different holiday regions - the Middle East, the Indian Ocean, India, the Far East, South Africa and Australasia - will each win a Nikon COOLPIX digital camera, worth around £400.
"We are looking for truly inspirational shots that really encapsulate the beauty of Emirates Tours' destinations," said Fabio Prestijacopo, General Manager, Emirates Tours UK, who is on the competition judging panel. "You certainly don't have to be a professional photographer - we're simply looking for images with exceptional composition, clarity and uniqueness which really stand out."
