Family travel is never quite as scrubbed and shiny as it looks in artfully edited social media feeds, but that’s just part of the joy. Whether they’re serendipitous discoveries, sweet surprises or plain old bloopers like getting hopelessly lost, there’s a lot to be said for keeping it real … the unscripted and unexpected moments are what make exploring the world with kids truly special and create memories for a lifetime.
This summer, we are thrilled to partner with Preferred Hotels & Resorts to present the #FamilyTravelTruth Instagram contest — a celebration of these candid moments with a chance to win a 2-night stay at one of Preferred Hotels’ kid-friendly luxury properties around the world.
Follow these three simple steps to enter:
• Follow @PreferredHotels on Instagram.
• Post a photo of your favorite family vacation moment (your #FamilyTravelTruth) and tag @PreferredHotels.
• Don’t forget to include #FamilyTravelTruth and #contest in the original photo caption description. Both tags must be present for the entry to count.
Entries will be accepted from July 26 through August 23, 2016, via Instagram only. One winner be selected each week for four weeks. The four final winners will be informed of their win via direct Instagram message the Tuesday of the following week, and all winners will be announced on Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ Instagram page from August 29-31, 2016. Winners will also receive 25 free Instagram photo prints from Artifact Uprising.
