Hansgrohe, the preeminent kitchen and bath manufacturer founded by master clothier and gifted innovator Hans Grohe, turns 111 years old on June 15, 2012. To celebrate the occasion, the company is sponsoring a major international photo competition and awarding winners around the world. The theme is all about water, naturally, and the number 111. Together with the international publishing house Merian/Travel House Media, the specialists for travel guides, Hansgrohe is searching for the 111 most beautiful water locations around the globe. These places will then be documented in a travel guide.
Join In and Win
The first 100 water locations will be compiled by Merian/Travel House Media and Hansgrohe, while the remaining 11 will be selected from the competition’s submissions. Those interested in participating should enter a photograph of his/her favorite water location and describe in a single sentence what makes the place so special. High-resolution photographs, 300dpi suitable for print are eligible for submission and can be uploaded to Hansgrohe’s website, http://www.hansgrohe.com//en/14477.htm. Detailed terms and conditions are also available online.
A panel of expert judges will choose the 11 best motifs, which will be reproduced in the Merian illustrated guidebook. In addition, all submissions qualify for a chance to win one of the 111 fantastic prizes up for grabs. The Grand Prize winner will receive a trip for two to one of the 111 most beautiful water locations, valued at $5,000.
