Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

SACRAMENTO, Calif., April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The first 'wow' moment when you saw the Half Dome. The first photo you snapped out the window as you crossed the Golden Gate Bridge. Your first hug with a giant Sequoia, or your dog catching his first Frisbee on a California beach.

These are the kinds of "California Milestone Moments" that people can share -- and win prizes for -- during a new photo contest launching today by Visit California, the state's official tourism agency.

The easy-to-enter contest aims to collect images of those incredible first-time experiences that could only happen in California. To enter, participants should go to Visit California's Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/VisitCA/app_244041225639079). Next, they can upload a photo and brief description capturing a personal "California Milestone Moment." Once the image is uploaded, Visit California's Facebook fans can "like" their favorite photos and stories.

At the end of the three-week contest, the ten entries with the most likes will win special prizes – including a branded eco-friendly water bottle and an iPhone 4/4s case – from Visit California. "California Milestones" runs April 26May 16, 2012.

Visit California (formerly known as the California Travel & Tourism Commission) is a non-profit organization with a mission to develop and maintain marketing programs – in partnership with the state's travel industry – that keep California top-of-mind as a premier travel destination. According to Visit California, travel and tourism expenditures total $102.3 billion annually in California (19.1 percent of which is international), support jobs for 893,000 Californians and generate $6.3 billion in state and local tax revenues.
