It’s Dream Trip 2009 time! Conde Nast Traveler’s annual photo contest is currently accepting submissions. The person who sends in the best travel photo, accompanied by an explanation of why it was an incredible moment, will win $25,000 to take the dream trip of their choice. The contest ends on July 31, so get cracking. Find that incredible photo and send it to Conde Nast Traveler! (Oh, and you can always feel free to share your photos with What A Trip, too. We’ll post them, along with your description of the scenery.)


The 2008 winner, who submitted a photo of a cliff-side monastery in Bhutan, chose to spend a week in the Maldives with a stopover in Hong Kong. That’s a pretty amazing vacation.
