Travel Caption Contest—2018

Travel Caption Contest—2018

We asked 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 we present the winner and five finalists:
