'One Picture From My Photo Album' Contest!

Remember those times when we enjoyed our holidays with a simple film or non-digital camera and stacked all our memories in neatly covered family albums... Special, aren't they? Now is the time to wipe the dust of them, to bring them out of the attic and to savor those lovely memories once again, and in return get pampered with gifts. Here’s how!

In the festive season of Gudi Padwa and Ramnavmi, My Yatra Diary together with the kind folks at CupoNation,
a publishing website offering a variety of discount coupons for a number of leading retailers like yatra, cleartrip, etc. in the travel section, takes huge delight in hosting its very own contest cum giveaway! All you have to do is blog and you stand a chance to pocket for your self vouchers worth 6000 INR!

What is the prize?

The prize is a 6000 INR Giftbig's e-giftcard if the winner is an Indian blogger OR a 100$ Amazon voucher if the winner is from any other country (other then India).

The giftbig giftcard will be redeemable for all products at their site, which means that you will have the freedom to choose from a host of remarkable top line brands ranging from apparels, books, electronics and travels like fastrack, lifestyle, titan, croma, westside, flipkart, yatra and many many more. On similar lines would work the amazon gift voucher, redeemable over an amazing selection of products listed on their site. You can browse through these brands, pick your favorite and then spend the voucher according to your heart's desire!

How do I win?

All you have to do is select that one picture from your picture album (non-digital) that is very very special to you and then blog about the memory associated with it.

Photo albums - A treasure of memories
