Contest Prizes
Beauty Amplified in North Carolina is about magnified experiences. Our sights, sounds, flavors and characters help uncover the many layers to our beauty. Show us the beauty you've discovered here by uploading your North Carolina photo and sharing it with your friends. Each photo receiving 20 votes or more is eligible to win a chance at one of three dream North Carolina trips that money can't buy.

Contest Requirements

To enter North Carolina's Beauty Amplified Photo Sweepstakes, take the following steps:

1. Find your photo, old or new, that shows what you see as Beauty Amplified in North Carolina. The photo can have been taken at any time at any place in the state, but must be from North Carolina and must be yours to share, meaning that nobody else owns the rights to it.

2. Fill out the entry form and upload your photo. Here, you'll need to confirm that the photo was taken in North Carolina and that you are the owner or are authorized by the owner to share it.

3. Choose which prize package you'd like to enter to win. You can select one, two or three, but you're only eligible to win one. Note that only certified divers may participate in the Queen Anne's Revenge wreck diving experience, so you should already be or plan to be certified if you're entering that one.

4. Submit your photo. It will be reviewed by the sweepstakes administrators, and once it's approved, will be posted on the Entries page. You'll also receive an email notification that your photo is live.

5. Share it! Send to friends and family, post on Facebook, share on Twitter, shout it from the mountaintops that your photo needs votes. You'll have a custom URL to share where people can come vote for your photo.

6. Once your photo receives 20 votes, you've qualified for the drawing for the prize package(s) for which you entered. Winners will be drawn at random on August 5, 2013, so stay tuned and keep checking out the other great photos of Beauty Amplified.
