Pipeaway is launching an Instagram photo contest! The main prize is the return flight ticket between a European airport of choice and Croatian airport of choice! I have piped away myself from Croatia to Asia, so with the launch of the website and our Instagram account, I have decided to provide the travel opportunity to one more European or Croatian citizen. Yes, this ticket giveaway functions both for Croatian passengers traveling to some European destination, as well as for European travelers wishing to go to Croatia!

This photo contest lets you choose your prize!

Choose one of the European airports in the offer: Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Belgrade, Brussels, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Lisbon, London, Milan, Munich, Paris, Pristina, Prague, Rome, St Petersburg, Sarajevo, Skopje, Vienna.

Choose one of the Croatian airports in the offer: Dubrovnik, Pula, Rijeka, Split, Zadar, Zagreb.

The return flight between these two airports is the prize you will get if you win the competition!

Pipeaway decision is final.

This giveaway is not sponsored by any airline, tourist board, Instagram or other enterprises. Pipeaway is providing this prize solely for the promotion of traveling between Europe and Croatia, and promotion of @pipeaway.project Instagram account.

However, the cover photograph of this Instagram contest has been provided by Croatian Tourist Board – its author is the photographer Renco Kosinozic. The shot shows the fish-shaped Croatian island of Gaz, Brijuni. If you wish to visit it during your Croatian visit, the closest airport is the one in Pula!


Thank you all for participating in #MyPipeAway Instagram contest! You have posted many beautiful images, from many great world locations! However, our very first competition on this platform wanted to stimulate the creativity, so this was the main criteria for choosing the winner. And the winner is – @briovandekamp, the author who made you laugh the other day with his paparazzo shot of a man sleeping in the waiting room with his bottom in the air… The winning photograph however is from the war museum in Ho Chi Minh City. Many tourists visit such places excited for being able to take pictures next to tanks, planes and different kinds of heavy artillery. But Bryan left his antiwar comment by posting a picture with a barrel pointing into his own mouth. #nomorewar Congratulations to Bryan who won a return European flight of his choice, to or from Croatia. He will be choosing his flight reward these days and hopefully inform us all about his new pipeaway adventure! Everyone else, keep piping away, and we will follow you! __________________________________________________ 🚢***mapping the extraordinary*** __________________________________________________ #tank #barrel #warmuseum #war #mouth #selfie #peace #message #politicalstatement #instagramcontest #photocontest #flightticket #giveaway #congratulations #winner #blackandwhite #travel #travelblog #pipeaway #exploremore #traveldeeper #travelgram #igtravel #mappingtheextraordinary #warremnantsmuseum #hochiminhcity #saigon #vietnam
