Photo Formats

Number of Entries
An individual may submit as many photos as they want in all categories. The only limit is your imagination.

Photo Restrictions
Photos must be appropriate for posting on the Jordan Tourism Board website. Obscene, provocative or otherwise questionable content will not be considered and will be removed.

How to Enter
Digital photos may be submitted using the online entry form. Each entry must be accompanied by a completed contest entry form. If you are submitting multiple entries, be sure to indicate clearly which form belongs with each photo. Along with the photo upload, please include the date the photo was taken along with a creative caption explaining the picture.

Judging
Entries will be judged on the basis of creativity, photographic quality, and effectiveness in conveying the beauty and/or unique character of Jordan in each of the contest categories. A JTB panel will judge the entries and all contest decisions are final. Entries that fail to comply with the official Contest Rules will be disqualified.

Winners
There will be two rounds of the contest. In the first round, judges will select five (5) finalists from each category, taking into consideration the number of votes received from the public and the creativity of the photo. In the second round, the public will then get to vote on the finalists and choose first, second, and third place winning photos.
