Discover Africa is Live

Yesterday a project I’ve been working on for a bit went live. Discover Africa is a Flickr api mashup that returns afrocentric pics in response to search queries.

South Africa Travel

To co-incide with the launch and drum up some buzz around this new brand, we’re running a little competition with a choice between two travel prizes, each valued at R15,000. The winner gets to choose between an overland trip or a luxury safari destination.

The competition is pretty simple.

  • You need to write either a blog post, flickr photo description or publish a youtube video that says something about travelling Africa.
  • The copy must be a minimum of 100 words and be all your own work – no plagiarism or copyright violations please.
  • You need to link to somewhere on the page.
  • The post we like the best and that gets the most genuine comments and positive response wins the prize.
  • When you’re done crafting your entry, head over to our contact page and let us know where to find it.
  • At 12h00 on Tues 21 April 2009 entries will close. Obviously the sooner you get something published, the longer you have to get the comments thread pumping.

For further info check out our home page and particularly the enquiry page . Good luck!

  1. Can the post be one that has been written already?? But amended to suit the competition and reposted on homepage??

  2. Hey Nic, sure that’s absolutely fine. As long as it has an African travel theme we’re totally happy.
