2013 Mardi Gras Photo Contest
I hope you have your camera ready! New Orleans’s Mardi Gras is one the most photographed celebrations in the world and I have a feeling whether it’s your first carnival or your thirty-first, you’ll want to capture the memories on film.
With the detailed and exquisite floats rolling by, the carnival like atmosphere that fills the city and the music that flows from every corner, it’s not hard to see why Mardi Gras so picturesque.
We’d like you to share those photos with us and to entice you to do that we put together a prize package that’ll definitely make it worth your while.
The grand prize winner enjoys a memorable stay at the Maison Dupuy, a luxury hotel located in the French Quarter.
It also includes of a choice of two tours from Gray Line New Orleans, the oldest locally owned tour company in the city.
Plus, the winner and the person of their choice will enjoy a distinctly New Orleans breakfast at Café Beignet.
Second Place Prize
The second place winner will enjoy a Jazz Lunch Cruise for two aboard the Steamboat NATCHEZ, an authentic steamboat on the Mississippi.
The winner will also partake in a retro dining experience at Frostop, a restaurant that serves comfort food favorites paired with their original Frostop Rootbeer.
Good luck everyone! We can’t wait to see your photos! We’ll share them with the other Mardi Gras New Orleans readers and pick the winner not too long after Mardi Gras.
