With over 150,000 posts tagged with #exploremb on Instagram, we never have a problem finding a beautiful shot to share daily. Our local community has stepped up to help spread Manitoba’s raw beauty and we’d like to help foster more experiences for our #exploremb ambassadors. Up for grabs is a stunning trip to the Whiteshell Provincial Park ❄️, with plenty of winter adventure in between…

How it works

Every Monday morning, we’ll send off a weekly challenge on Instagram (@travelmanitoba) asking you to share your photos or videos related to a specific theme. All you have to do is post your best stuff that relates to the challenge during the week (Monday to Sunday) with the hashtag #igwhiteshell and #exploremb.

While the photo does not have to be new, it must be reposted once the contest has commenced (ie; no tagging old photos that are already posted). Three finalists will be chosen each week to be featured on our blog. Out of those finalists, 4 winners will be chosen to receive the final prize. There are no limits to how often or how many times you can submit photos under the hashtags – but please include both to qualify.

We would also love you to tell us in your posts what makes these moments special to you. Be short and sweet or long and detailed – we love it all!

What you get: The prize

All featured Instagrammers will be considered finalists for our special winter Whiteshell trip!
