HAVE A PASSION FOR CAPE COD?

WANT TO SHARE THAT PASSION WITH SOMEONE SPECIAL?

ENTER THE "WHO NEEDS A VACATION?" PHOTO CONTEST AND THAT PERSON COULD WIN $2000 TOWARDS A CAPE OR ISLANDS VACATION!

-NOMINATIONS ARE STILL OPEN-

September 5, 2012, Brewster, MA - Photographers young and old from far and near are snapping pictures of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, or Nantucket. They know their photo could really take someone far! By entering their image and nominating a special and deserving person in the Who Needs a Vacation? 2012 Photo Contest, their nominee could win $2000 towards a week's stay in a Cape or Islands vacation rental listed on WeNeedaVacation.com.

And Cape Cod itself will benefit, as well. At the time of entry, submitters choose a local non-profit organization to which WeNeedaVacation.com will donate $5 for their entry: The Association to Preserve Cape Cod, Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod, Cape Cod Cares for Our Troops, and Nauset Neighbors. When a Grand Prize winner is selected on October 10th, the charity chosen by the submitter of that winning entry will receive an additional $100 donation.

Entries must be submitted via Facebook.com/CapeCodandIslandsVacations and the Photo Contest tab by September 15th to be included in the voting round held September 16 through September 30. On October 1st, five entries with the most votes and five entries chosen by WeNeedaVacation.com will advance to the final round.

The Grand Prize winner will be chosen from the ten finalists by a panel of local judges at a live judging event hosted by the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce on October 10th at The Lobster Claw in Orleans.
