Enter. Travel. Blog: In the Footsteps of the Great Explorers

Enter to win one of the 1o Voyages of Discovery from Leica!

In conjunction with the launch of the new Leica V-Lux 2, you are invited to enter the In the Footsteps of the Great Explorers. Ten winners will each receive €2,000 for their travel kitty. And as a constant companion on their tour: the new Leica V-Lux 2 and €750 worth of equipment from The North Face!

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for true adventurers who want to travel with Leica in the spirit of famous explorers whether it’s Leif Eriksson in North America, Ferdinand Magellan in South America, Roald Amundsen in Antarctica, James Bruce in Egypt, David Livingstone in Africa, Ibn Battuta in India, Nain Singh in Tibet, Marco Polo in China, James Cook in Australia, or William Adams in Japan!

A Leica jury will select the 10 winners from all entries at the end of November 2010. And from mid January to late February 2011, they will then follow in the footsteps of great explorers – for at least two weeks. As a winner and a Leica ambassador, all you have to do is report back every day with your experiences and write about them in a travel blog on the http://www.leica-explorer.com/ website.

Enter now for one of the 10 Voyages of Discovery!

Best of luck!

  • Would like to enter, sadly not in the best of shape anymore. However have always admired the Leica camera, and would like to enter for at least the opportunity to win the Lexus of cameras.

  • Out of curiosity I did some airfare checking online today. My voyage of choice would be to Tibet. Unfortunately, the €2,000 wouldn’t even cover the necessary plane tickets. Think it’s safe to say it’s rather sad when the winner got to bring his/her own money to do the traveling and blogging, isn’t it?

  • Harald–I’ve been to Tibet. A cheaper way to get there is to fly into China and take the train to Lhasa. Easily doable with the prize money. On the other hand, I’m having trouble with the contest application in that it gives me an error every time I try to submit my info.

  • Johnny, did you get it to work? I had to take the “/” out of my address to have my entry accepted.
