Win A Free Trip To Machu Picchu

On January 11th, the Karikuy Organization rolled out its 3rd annual win a free trip to Machu Picchu contest. While every year since its inception we have brought you a different type of contest, we decided that this year we would give the artists; the creative minds out there the opportunity to participate and win the contest. For that reason this years contest is a t-shirt design competition. We are basically looking for the most creative and cool looking t-shirt a mind can create.

The winner of the contest will not only receive a four day trip to Machu Picchu courtesy of Karikuy Tours, but his winning design will also be created into a t-shirt that our 2011 volunteers will receive and be able to wear during their time travelling in Peru. All submissions for the contest must be sent to us before February 25th, 2011. The submission deadline will be followed by a three week voting period to highlight the best designs. Beginning on Monday, February 28th all submissions will be uploaded to contest page for voting to occur. In all there will be 4 finalists, 3 chosen by number of votes and one by special consideration (voted on by our past and present volunteers). From those final four t-shirt design a final vote will take place by our 2011 volunteers. Any draws will be settled by votes coming from our previous years contest winners. The winner will be announced on Saturday, March 19th.

The winner will win a 4 day trip to Machu Picchu which includes, hotel transfers, 3 nights hostel, Sacred Valley tour and tourist ticket with backpacker train connections to Aguas Calientes, a Sunrise Tour of Machu Picchu with all admissions and return backpacker train to Cusco. What a great prize to win on Machu Picchu’s centennial of all years! The winner will be free to pick any date to begin his free trip. We look forward to seeing your entries into the competition, we wish you all the best of luck!

    My French is not up to speed, but I love Peru, and Machu Picchu is the most spectacular wonder of the world.
