Flying Blue is the Frequent Flyer program of Air France and KLM – plus a few other smaller airlines.
They have a competition running until 9th July whereby you upload your favourite holiday photo in landscape format and a panel of judges choose the best three.
The three winners win:
- A print of their Photograph on one of the luggage tags offered to Flying Blue members (Silver, Gold or Platinum tags)
- 200,000 Miles
- A platinum card valid for one (1) year from date of receipt of card.
You can enter up to ten photos.
My advice for entering:
- Avoid pictures with any people in them. If I were Flying Blue I wouldn’t choose pictures with people as it would be pretty embarrassing if, after printing a zillion luggage tags, it turned out the person depicted was an axe murderer. Even if your photo features your most-trusted travelling companion or spouse, Flying Blue don’t know their history, or what they might do in the future.
- Avoid pictures with any brand logos. Flying Blue won’t want to co-brand, even with their preferred partners. They also won’t want to bother obtaining permissions from other trademark holders.
- Avoid pictures that feature gambling or alcohol. These won’t go down well in some countries and these tags are for everyone.
- Avoid pictures that feature obvious religious symbols. Again, these won’t sit well in some countries. I’d even avoid things like the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio.
- Do not overly re-touch or re-colour your images.
- Ensure your picture still looks good when the luggage tag name field, right-side slot and left-side hole have been applied. For example, here’s a picture I won’t be entering (breaks rule 1 and the luggage tag name field and hole don’t fit well with the image) as shown on the entry page.
