#Architecture Photo Contest Winner!

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been lucky enough to have received thousands of shots of architectural awesomeness from all around the world for our #architecture photo contest. From world-famous landmarks to local gems, from abstract to classic, we’ve seen so many different types of structural shots come in–it’s been great!

Well today is the day we’ve all been waiting for.

Today, we get to announce the lucky winner of the $1,500 prize in this sweepstakes contest! Without further ado, the winner of the #architecture photo contest is… Ai Long who entered this shot of the Itsukushima shrine on Miyajima Island, Japan:

In the spirit of the winter season, we wanted to see your best snow shots this month. To make that happen, we hosted a #Snow Destination Contest throughout February!

We’ve just wrapped up the contest and are now excited to announce the lucky Trover who gets to pocket the grand prize of $1500 for this sweepstakes contest.

So, with no further ado, we’d like to congratulate our winner Doru Oprisan who entered this stunning photo of Ceahlău Massif in Romania!

#Snow Destination Photo Contest

It’s white, it’s (sometimes) fluffy, and it makes everything look gorgeous.

Yes, we’re talking about snow.

This February, we’re launching our #Snow Destination Photo Contest because we want you to share your best snow destination photo(s) with us. The grand prize for this contest is a whopping $1500 so there’s no reason not to join in!

Upload original #snow photos, like this one by Bernini, and you could win $1500!

To enter, you’ll need to:

1) Upload an original snow destination photo to Trover.

2) Write #snow in the details field.

3) Repeat the first two steps until you run out of great snow shots.

This contest, like our last one, is a sweepstakes. That means that the more awesome snowy photos you post, the higher your chances are of winning. The contest begins today (February 4th) and will end at 11:59pm PST on February 22nd.

 Also, if you’ve already posted a ton of snow shots to Trover, just remember to add “#snow” to them and they’ll be entered!
