Travel Tuesday Tweet Sony Sweepstakes

by Gina 08/05/2013

It’s August and we can see the end of summer in sight. It’s time for everyone to fit in those last set of summer holidays and staycations. Whether you’re traveling overseas or traveling to the local park for few picnics this summer, thanks to digital and mobile photography, we can all capture the memories.  To celebrate summer and our love of travel (big and small), we’re kicking off ‘Travel Tuesday’ for the month of August.

Every Tuesday a new set of images will be posted on this blog. Tell us where the photo is from and you could win a Sony NEX-3N camera. We’ll be giving away one camera every week.

Send in your answers via the comments section of this blog post or Tweet us @SonyElectronics by Friday 8/30 at 5pm PST.

  • Make sure #TravelTuesday is included in your tweet or you won’t be entered. This is a must!
    • Example: @SonyElectronics The photos are pictures of Rome #TravelTuesday.
    • If you send in your answer as a comment on the blog, make sure you provide your correct email address so we can contact you if you win.

One entry is allowed per person, per day, and only U.S. residents are eligible. Three winners will be selected at random.

    For week 2, I’m going to guess these photos are from a Sony RX-1 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Earth. Again, I really like the night shot this time around.

    The Sony Blog seems to have beaches on the mind!

    This is either the festival of San Antonio held in the Municipality of Marcelino Vieira or it is Festa de São Pedro held in a similar area of Brazil just at a different time of the year.
    Sony, as a huge multinational company, you can at least make this competition available to everyone, shipping costs are small compared to the price of the camera.
