Alaska Tour & Travel’s Photo Contest is back for 2013. Over the past few years, we have been able to share over 1500 photos of Alaska submitted to us by residents and visitors. Each year we award the Grand Prize to the photographer that submits the best photograph depicting Alaska’s spectacular wildlife, scenery, people or adventure. This year’s Grand Prize Winner will again receive a 32 GB Wi-Fi iPad valued at $599.
2013 is our 5th Anniversary for our Photo Contest. To celebrate, we will offer a 2nd Prize – a 16 GB iPad mini for the winning Alaska Railroad themed photo. The Alaska Railroad  photo selected to win must depict passenger travel on the Alaska Railroad, its dome cars, trains traveling in Alaska, or even activity at rail depots.<--more-->
