Dear Holbrook Traveler,

It is with great excitement that I announce that we have officially begun accepting submissions for Holbrook Travel’s 2014 calendar!

Each year our calendar features photos displaying some of the highlights our travelers have had in the field. To celebrate Holbrook Travel’s 40th anniversary in 2014 we invite you to share your best photographs, past and present, from your travels with us. With the broad range of destinations and specialties that we have offered over the years, these moments are sure to be a wonderful and diverse celebration of the journeys we have been on together.

We urge you to take this opportunity to share your experiences with the Holbrook Travel community and the amazing insights that have arisen from them. In particular, we are seeking images that tell a story of what happened in that moment, what you were thinking, the emotions you experienced, and what impact the journey had.

If your entry is chosen for the calendar, you’ll receive a Fracture classic printed glass photo of your submission or a scratch-off world map and your choice of the following Blu-ray documentaries:

Entries are due September 21, 2013.

Thank you in advance for your contributions. We look forward to helping you plan your next adventure!

With every good wish,

Andrea Holbrook
