There’s nothing like a photo competition to get the Intrepid office dreamily checking flight deals to Rio and wistfully looking out of windows. (We’re easily distracted. Imagine an office of travel-loving kittens.)
See December’s theme was South and Central America, and our inboxes have been flooded with incredible Torres del Paine dreamscapes, cute-as-a-button children on the streets of Cuzco and the tantalising flash of Quechuan pink. We put a shout-out for the best of Suda America, and you guys didn’t disappoint. Competition was fiercer than a spicy rocoto pepper, and our expert judges had a tough time pulling out a winner. Do you go for the kid with a pigeon on his head, or a glacier shot that would make a Nat Geo front cover? Decisions, decisions…
And the winner is…
Congratulations Florencia Muriel! We looked and looked, but no matter how hard we tried we couldn’t find a more adorable shot than your pic of this pigeon-feeding superhero. Just look at those cheeks! To reward your efforts, we’ll be sending you an Intrepid Travel voucher to the tune of AUD$800! Spend it wisely.
A hearty congrats to all our December finalists. You roamed into the wilds of South and Central America and came back with some truly epic snaps. In a way, you’re all winners. Unfortunately we can only reward your victory with kudos. Kudos isn’t redeemable for cash, but it is redeemable for good feels. So redeem away. You’ve earned it.
