Photo fail contest kicks off VPA drive

December 20,2015 - 10:28 PM

The Department of Tourism (DOT) has launched an online contest for the best photo fails in the country to kick off the Visit the Philippines Again 2016 campaign.

“Everyone is invited to upload his own version of photo fails on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with the official hashtag #Visitphilippinesagain2016,” the DOT said in a statement.

Deadline for the submission of entries is on January 16, 2016. The winner will be chosen based on: fun, beauty of the Philippines captured in the shot, and creativity.

The DOT said the Visit the Philippines Again 2016 campaign aims to promote the Philippines as a tourist and business destination.

“Visit the Philippines Again 2016 is going to be the most massive retail-focused effort the Philippines has ever made.

We are negotiating with tour operators and travel agents to give incentives to returning visitors to the Philippines,” Tourism Secretary Ramon R. Jimenez, Jr. said.

Aside from the special packages for visitors, the DOT, together with its Tourism Promotions Board (TPB), has partnered with the private sector and local government units in promising a bigger, greater, and more exciting line up of events and tourism product offerings that showcase the country’s competitive advantage as a destination.

Among these major events include the ASEAN Tourism Forum 2016, Routes Asia 2016, Madrid Fusion Manila 2016, 2016 Ironman 70.3 Asia Pacific Championship, MTV Music Evolution 2016, and the Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX).
