Belize City, Thursday, April 6th, 2017: This summer will see the Caribbean Tourism Organization release the new edition of Your Caribbean Weddings & Honeymoons guide and the publishers have launched a photographic competition to select the winning, stunning romantic shots to grace the cover.

The competition is open to amateurs and professional photographers alike in the Caribbean, including Belize.  The competition represents a unique opportunity for Belizean photographers to showcase their photographic skills on the front of a major international consumer and trade travel guide. The guide will be distributed by the CTO at wedding shows and other key wedding and travel and tourism events in the UK and Europe.

Any shots used will be credited and, in addition, the publishers may also use some inside the guide.

Publishers are in particular looking for photos that portray the romantic side of the Caribbean – think dreamy landscapes and loved-up couples!

The photo backdrop has to be unmistakably Caribbean: think sun-drenched beaches or beautiful rainforest; a romantic plantation house or a glamorous yacht. Just let your creative side run wild!

If you think you have what it takes to see your photo on the cover, please send your pictures and details to BMI Publishing by May 1, 2017.


Please send entries to [email protected] (subject line: Your Caribbean Wedding & Honeymoons Competition). It’s preferable that entrants supply pictures as JPEG files at a minimum of 300 ppi (pixels per inch) in resolution at a minimum size of A4 in a portrait format. A4 = width x height as follows: 8” by 12”, 21 by 29.7cm or 2400 by 3400px.
