If you find yourself sitting at work, dreaming of a beautiful getaway then this could be the perfect contest for you.

How Do You Enter?
Simply create a Pinterest board (if you don’t have Pinterest yet, Click Here), add 10 pins to your board and make sure at least 3 are from the TM HCC – MIS Group blog or website. These pins should showcase your ideal international vacation. Then you just need to add #DreamHolidayContest to each pin on the board.
Once your board is created, head over to TM HCC – MIS Group’s Dream Holiday Contest Page and on the right side of the page you’ll see a place to enter your name, email, travel plans and Pinterest Board URL. Once you’ve added your info and your board, just click the “Send Your Board Now” button and voila! You’re entered.
The contest is very easy to enter, especially if you’re already a Pinterest user, but even if you’re not you can easily join Pinterest and create a board within 15 minutes… not bad for a $250 hotel gift card right?!
Pinterest is an excellent tool for trip planning, we have 22 of our own boards, and many group boards that we are a part of. Get planning your trip on Pinterest and win 🙂

Yes, there are judges to this contest! To better your chance of winning the Hotels.com gift card, you’ll want to make sure that your board has a consistent theme (ie: a specific destination), and includes a variety of pins like landscapes, food, people etc.
While it is vital that at least 3 pins come from the TM HCC – MIS Group website or blog, the other pins should be from a variety of sources. Get creative! Surf around the web and find some of your favourite articles about your dream holiday destination and pin them to your board.
You should also make sure that your board is aesthetically pleasing. The judges will be looking over each board and they will award points for beautiful imagery. Make your board as sexy as possible to maximize your chance of winning!
And lastly, the judges will be looking at the size of your board and audience. Make sure you share your board with your friends and family. Get people talking about your board and get everyone excited about your amazing holiday dream.

When will the judging take place?
The TM HCC – MIS Group judges will definitely be busy but they are up to the task. There will be four judging days. On each judging day, they will evaluate all entries that have been submitted up to that date.
This means if you submit your board on the first day of the contest, but don’t win on the first judging day, you still have a shot to win on the next three judging days, but you can still only win once.
Here are the days they’ll be judging contest entries:
- December 5th
- December 12th
- December 19th
- December 22nd
The winners will be notified via email so make sure you keep checking your inbox (and your junk mail just in case) so that you know if you won or not.
That’s it! It’s a pretty easy contest to enter and the payout is awesome. Four chances to win $250 in Hotels.com gift cards. Those can go a pretty long way during the holiday season!

May the best board win…
