Photo of the Month Contest

With stunning scenery around every bend, your camera will be put to good use on your Nordic Visitor adventure. And once your trip has ended, one of those snapshots can do more than adorn your Facebook wall or be filed away in an album. 

By sharing one of your favourite shots with us, it just might be named our Photo of the Month!

Aside from being featured on Nordic Visitor’s Facebook page, the winning photographer will score a prize from 66° North, Iceland’s leading outdoor clothing brand.

Who can enter the Nordic Photo of the Month contest?

Anybody who travels on a Nordic Visitor travel package in any of our destinations can enter.

How can you enter?

Just post your photo(s) or short video(s) on our Facebook wall or on your Twitter or Instagram feeds and make sure to use BOTH the #nvpics and #nordicvisitor hashtags.

P.S. It helps your chances of winning if you include a nice caption with each photo. It's even better if you mention the name of your Nordic Visitor tour!

What could you win?

Something to keep you warm, dry and looking good for future travel photos!

Each monthly winner will receive a travel-friendly Vatnajökull Primaloft Jacket (men's or women's, valued at ISK 32.000) from 66°North, a brand that has kept Iceland warm since 1926.

How are winning photos selected?

A jury of Nordic Visitor staff chooses one winning photo for each month.

Our judges’ criteria are very open-ended, but creativity, well composed photos and descriptive captions always help. We also take special note of #NordicVisitor hashtagged photos that have a lot of likes and/or comments on social media. 

How are the winning photos used?

Each winning photo will be featured on our Facebook page. That ensures that tens of thousands of our fans will get to admire your winning shot.
