#WeekendGetaway Photo Sweepstakes Winner

We just ended our most recent Travel Photo Sweepstakes, which was all about sneaking in an awesome #WeekendGetaway or two before summer’s end.

From mountaintop camping trips to urban explorations, sunny beach towns to marine adventures, you showered us with thousands of beautiful travel photos from dozens of countries around the world, making this Sweepstakes a huge success. So thank you!

And while every photo you shared made us want to pack our bags and head out on an adventure, there could only be one lucky #WeekendGetaway winner.

That winner is…

Mel T, who shared this gorgeous shot of Catseye Beach on Hamilton Island, Australia!

Introducing the #Waterlust Photo Challenge

We love summer. Is it obvious?

We’ve already celebrated summertime classics like #goldenhour and #hiking. And so it’s only natural to share some love with summer’s #1 feature: water!

In summer all over the world, people turn to lakes, rivers, oceans, seas, ponds, streams, and waterfalls to cool down and have some fun in the sun. The joy of spending time in the water is something we call “waterlust,” and it’s the focus of our latest photo challenge!

Trover’s $1500 #Waterlust Photo Challenge

Without further ado, we bring you The Trover #Waterlust Photo Challenge. We’re looking for stunning photos, remarkable places, and useful information, so bring on your best!

Ready to go? Upload your #Waterlust photos now!

Now is the perfect time to enjoy water and the marine wonders that call it home. Whether you go swimming, boating, sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, surfing, standup paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing, cliff jumping, beaching, waterfall sliding, kitesurfing, rafting, tubing, or in exploration of marine life, we want to see where you go and what you find. In fact, to level up the fun, we’re going to give $1500 to the person who can show us the best #waterlust discovery.
