SEATTLE, Aug. 19, 2013 /CNW/ - Holland America Line has launched a new "Amazing Alaska" Pinterest sweepstakes that will award five randomly selected winners an American Express gift card valued at $500.
Participants can visit the Pinterest Sweepstakes tab on Holland America Line's Facebook page and choose their favorite Alaska excursion photo from a selection of six beautiful images. Entrants then provide the required information and click submit, which will pin the image to one of their personal Pinterest boards. In order to be eligible to win, entrants must also follow Holland America Line's Pinterest Board (www.pinterest.com/halcruises).
"Our last Pinterest contest was very successful and it proved that the social media platform is a fantastic way for us to engage with our guests on a visual level," said Richard Meadows, executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest programs. "Alaska is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, and Pinterest allows us to show off the incredible scenery our guests witness on every Alaska cruise."
Entries are limited to legal residents of the United States (excluding Colorado) and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are 18 years of age or older. The sweepstakes runs through September 20, 2013.
