TORONTO — The Cuba Tourist Board has announced the winners of its travel agent photo contest, all of whom submitted inspirational photos of the destination.
Launched last month ahead of Travel Agent Day on May 5, the contest invited agents to submit their favourite travel photos for a chance to win a four-night, all-inclusive trip to Cuba.
The grand prize winner is ‘The Red Car’ by Karen Grant from The Travel Agent Next Door in Toronto.
In second place is Lucie Lamoureux of Vacances Bellefeuille in Quebec, whose photo ‘The Beach Experience’ won her a complimentary full-day catamaran cruise in Cuba, courtesy of Gaviota Group.
Third prize went to ‘The Sunset’ by Leo-Paul Cormier of Maritime Travel Toronto. His winning submission will be published on Cuba Tourist Board’s Facebook page and on its website, along with the first and second prize winners.
“We wanted to bring a little joy and excitement to celebrate this Travel Agent Day while at the same time show how appreciative we are of the travel agent community across the country,” said Lessner Gomez, director of the Cuba Tourist Board in Toronto. “We want to thank all the participants, we had fantastic entries, which made it very difficult to pick the winners.”
Gomez added: “It is obvious that the agents who participated have a special place in their hearts for Cuba and the photos they submitted reflected this.”
