How to Enter the Micato Photo Contest

Who can enter?

Any guest who has travelled with Micato Safaris in Africa or India.

What are the details?

Travellers can submit as many photos as they’d like each month in three separate categories: People, Places or Wildlife. Only photos taken on an African Safari or Indian Journey with Micato are eligible, and we can only accept digital photos received via our online form which you can access by using the Enter Contest button at the bottom of this page. Each entry should be sent as a jpeg between 1MB and 5 MB in size – we regret that any photos not sent in the correct format and size cannot be accepted. In addition, any photos that have been digitally altered will not be accepted.

What should I include with my submission?

Please include the following information with each photo: your name, when you travelled and the name of your safari. You’re encouraged to send a brief description of the photograph and “the moment” captured when taking it.

And the prizes are…

Spectacular! Each month, one winner will be chosen from all photos received and will win a $250 credit in the online Micato Safari Shop. The Grand Prize winner will be awarded: a $3000 credit toward a future Micato safari! (Or to spend in the Micato Safari Shop.) Second and third prizes will be $1000 and $500 credits, respectively, to the Micato Safari Shop.

Each participant waives all moral and legal rights in each image submitted by him or her, and agrees to execute all reasonable documentation, at Micato Safaris’ cost, to give effect to the foregoing including any instrument of assignment and consents to his or her name and/or likeness being used, published and reproduced by Micato Safaris.

Trip credits are applicable on any Micato safari and are valid for five years from the date of issue and are not transferable. The winners are responsible for the balance of their trip price, air travel, insurance, any relevant taxes, and expenses not specifically included in the safari to which trip credit prizes are applied.

Prizes are subject to the winners’ agreement that they and their travel companion(s), if any, will sign Micato’s then-applicable registration forms and Terms and Conditions provided. Failure to sign this document will eliminate a winner’s entitlement to receive the prize. A winner’s acceptance of a prize shall be good and sufficient consideration for the provision of the registration forms and Terms and Conditions to Micato by the prizewinner and his/her travelling companion(s).
