Snap A Great Smartphone Photo - Win A Cruise With Celebrity!



Following a survey commissioned by Celebrity Cruises that a staggering 67% of people now take pictures on their mobile on holiday, the cruise line has launched a search – alongside worldwide known and award-winning photographers – for the best travel photo ever taken on a smartphone.

Marking this significant change in the photographic landscape, Celebrity is working alongside esteemed photographers Stuart Franklin (Former President of Magnum, who took what is lauded as one of the most iconic images of all time: the World Press photo Award-winning picture of a man defying a tank in Tiananmen Square, China); Ian Berry, Art Wolfe, Massimo Vitali and Oliver Lang to find the best smartphone travel photo ever taken.
 
The winner will be appointed as Celebrity's ‘Photo Ambassador for 2014’ and embark on a 14-night Scandinavia & Russia cruise next May. Taking in the spell-binding sights of Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, St Petersburg, Berlin and Paris, there will be spectacular scenery and cities for the winner to capture the essence of each destination through their smartphone. As well as the cruise, the winner’s photographs will then be exhibited on the Celebrity Cruises blog.
 
Five lucky runners-up will be treated to a personal photography tutorial with Franklin on board Celebrity Eclipse in Southampton in Spring 2014, which will include lunch and a tour of the ship.

To enter, simply submit your image via http://www.celebritycruises.co.uk/smartsnaps or via social media, using the hashtag #smartsnaps. Closing date is November 15. For full terms and conditions, visit www.celebritycruises/smartsnaps
