So, what is the competition all about? APOTY was created to inspire travellers to explore our great continent while showcasing the undeniable beauty of Africa. The current ‘Capture Africa’ category will remain active until the end of March where the quarterly winner will be announced. For anyone feeling unsure of what this category means, it is simply an expression of your vision – what does Africa mean to you? Each of the new categories will be announced and explained as they become active.
As always, there are some nitty gritty details to consider before you enter, so please give the Terms & Conditions a quick read.
The winner of each quarterly category will receive a pair of SWAROVSKI OPTIK Companion 10×30 binoculars worth $1, 400. At the end of the fourth and final quarter we will be announcing the winner of our Grand Prize – an incredible 9-day holiday for two valued at $32, 000!
