It’s December. Time to reflect upon the year that’s almost passed, and look back fondly at vacation photos from warmer days.

Why not use those photos to WIN something? AFAR is giving away an iPad Mini* each week in December for the best Highlight posted. Just upload your Highlight and tag it with “CatchDecember.” The grand prize winner, at the end of the month—judged by a team from the AFAR editorial and art departments—will be included in AFAR magazine!

So, have at it—start uploading. We’re making it easy for you: no location requirements, no Wanderlists—just great Highlights sharing your travel experiences. Remember what makes a great Highlight, though: a description of an experience that includes enough details to make it easy for other travelers to do the same thing; a compelling photo; and a clear title.

That’s it! We can’t wait to read about your travels! Upload a Highlight now. 

*Or the equivalent prize in U.S. dollars, if we cannot ship an iPad Mini to you. And if you could have sworn that we were originally giving away a Kindle, you’re not crazy: we decided to up the game and switch out the prize! Note: we cannot promise that we’ll be able to ship the iPad in time for Christmas.
