We are beyond excited to announce our two Instagram photo contests we’ll be running all summer long! We wanted to include EVERYONE so the contests vary only based on whether you’ll be here at La Costa Resort and Spa during the Contest Period, OR just daydreaming about being here. We believe there’s no better time of year than summer, and look to you to share photos that epitomize summer. See below for full details on how to win a dream getaway to La Costa Resort and Spa.
Contest Period: June 1- September 4, 2013
HOW IT WORKS – #LACOSTASUMMER
- If you haven’t already, register to become a member of Instagram.
- Follow @lacostaresortandspa
- Enter a photo and tag it using the #LaCostaSummer hashtag
Now you may be thinking, but I’m not at La Costa Resort… in fact, I’ve never BEEN to La Costa Resort. And this is the inspiration for our little contest. We think everyone deserves a little La Costa vacation in their life, so all we’re looking for is YOUR representation of summer. When you think of the word, what comes to mind? Is it your favorite summer cocktail or dessert? Is it fireworks on the 4th of July?
Whatever summer means to you, we want to SEE it.
Now capture that in a photo and send along tagging the #LaCostaSummer hashtag.
See official #LaCostaSummer rules here.
When you think back on your favorite summer vacations gone by, what’s that one memory or photo that epitomizes what was magical about the vacation? That’s what we’re looking for in the #LaCostaSplash Instagram photo contest. While you’re here at La Costa Resort on vacation, snap a photo – could be of your favorite summer cocktail at EDGE Adults Pool, or a photo of your favorite book resting on one of our courtyard hammocks, or a closeup of your recently manicured nails at the Salon.
Whenever inspiration strikes, snap a pic and tag #LaCostaSplash
