Travel Caption Contest—2018

Travel Caption Contest—2018

We want to hear about your travel adventures, but in a unique way.

Picture a memorable moment from a travel experience. (You can even make one up.) Now, visualize this moment as a photograph. Then…give us the caption for that photograph in 15 words or fewer.

It’s about capturing the moment in the caption so that we can see the photograph in our mind’s eye.

Whoever writes the best caption will win a free Gotham class of his or her choosing.

Here are a few examples from Gotham’s Winter and Spring interns:

So many of us squeezed onto that rickshaw. Still the best day ever.
