Voting Begins! Tahiti Tourisme's Online Video Contest

    Six Couples or Families to Win a Trip to the Ultimate Paradise

    EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 11 /CNW/ -- The polls are now open for the first
round of Tahiti Tourisme's "Invest In Your Love" video contest, which will
award the first of six trips to the legendary and exotic islands of Tahiti.


    The contest launched in April, inviting people to submit a video on why
they need (and deserve) an escape to the islands of Tahiti. More than 25
original videos have been approved for voting - from heart warming and
sentimental to wacky and offbeat, they all make a plea for a trip to Tahiti.
Videos can be viewed and voted on at

    "There are some really entertaining videos submitted," says Al Keahi,
managing director, Tahiti Tourisme North America. "From talking dogs and
Popsicles to heartfelt stories about dream honeymoons and long distance love,
the videos are fun, inspired, and illustrate why these couples and families
deserve a Tahitian vacation."

    Voting will be open from June 11-25, 2009. Videos that receive the
highest number of public votes move on as finalists and an expert panel will
select a winner.

    Haven't uploaded a video yet? There are still five more contest periods
for a chance to win.  See for full rules, dates,
regulations and a "how-to submit" video explanation.

    Tahiti Tourisme will handle all travel arrangements, including
international air on award-winning Air Tahiti Nui, inter-island transportation
and six nights' deluxe accommodations on two of Tahiti's 118 islands and daily
breakfast and dinner. Adventures may include swimming with rays and sharks; a
picnic on a private islet; a 4x4 safari tour along volcanic cliffs; spa
treatments and dive excursions for select trips.

    Those not submitting a video can still find hot online special offers, a
package deal of the week, discounts on meals and excursions and bonus savings
redeemable when travelers book their vacations. For a little inspiration, a
downloadable Tahiti widget offers a breathtaking slideshow of the islands of
Tahiti including interactive travel maps and real-time weather reports.

    The islands of Tahiti are much closer than many travelers think, only an
eight-hour non-stop flight from Los Angeles with daily departures on Air
Tahiti Nui. Receiving as many tourists in an entire year as Hawaii gets in
about 12 days, and only a few more hours in the air, Tahiti is truly a
convenient, ideal escape. The friendly Polynesian people, cultural
experiences, signature overwater bungalows, extraordinary cuisine and
activities in a pristine environment are just a few of many reasons to
consider the South Seas paradise for a vacation.
