#LionWorldTales Photo Contest 2017
Animal Fun in the Wild!
In 2015, Lion World Travel adopted the TreadRight Animal Welfare Policy to deepen our commitment to Africa’s animals. By adopting the policy, we agreed to only offer wildlife experiences to guests that abide by important welfare principles. The policy is based on the "five freedoms" that assert that animals should have freedom from hunger and thirst; freedom from discomfort; freedom from pain, injury and disease; freedom to express normal behavior; and freedom from fear and distress. For the 2017 #LionWorldTales Photo Contest, we want to focus on animal welfare by asking our guests to share photos of animals enjoying the "freedom to have fun" in the wild.
We are asking our guests to share their best playful and fun photos of Africa’s animals on social media for a chance to win two Lion World Travel safari bags, copies of the 2018 #LionWorldTales calendar and, the grand prize, a GoPro camera!
Photos of Animals Having Fun

We want to see photos that capture those elusive moments of fun and play—for example, maybe you captured a great shot of a lion with his tongue lolling lazily out of his mouth, or perhaps you snapped a shot of a litter of cheetah cubs wrestling in the wild. The sky is the limit on what you find playful or fun. Check out some of the amazing photos on this page from the 2016 #LionWorldTales Contest for inspiration!

3 Contests and 1 Grand Prize
In 2017, we will hold three individual contests in March, June, and September each featuring the top playful photos we have received from Lion World Travel guests. The winning photo will be determined through an online poll where the Lion World Travel community will vote to choose their favorite photo. The photo that receives the most votes, wins!

At the end of the year, the Lion World Travel team will choose their overall favorite playful photo from the top 13 photos and the photographer will be awarded the grand prize—a GoPro camera!
Each of the three winners of the competition will receive a Lion World Travel prize pack featuring:
- Two Lion World Travel Safari Bags
- Copies of the 2017 #LionWorldTales Calendar
The grand prize will be selected from the top 13 photos by the Lion World Travel team. The winning photographer will receive a GoPro camera!
#LionWorldTales 2018 Calendar
All 13 photos that we select as finalists will be featured in the 2018 #LionWorldTales calendar. Alongside each photo, a fun caption will be featured.
