Carnival dangles free Vista cruise for best 'Manhattanhenge' photo

Carnival dangles free Vista cruise for best 'Manhattanhenge' photo
Carnival Cruise Line is offering a free cruise on the new Carnival Vista in a social media contest for the best photo of a New York City sunset. Not just any sunset but the phenomenon called 'Manhattanhenge,' when the sun aligns perfectly with the city’s grid, illuminating the north and south sides of every cross street.

City dwellers and tourists alike gather to snap photos during the Big Apple event which this year takes place on July 12.

Inspired by Manhattan’s skyline and Carnival Vista’s name, the contest asks participants to snap their best photo of the Manhattanhenge phenomenon and upload the image on July 12 to Instagram, Twitter or using the hashtag #ShowMeYourVista. One winner will be selected to win a free Carnival Vista cruise for two.

All approved images will appear on and will be judged on creativity and originality by 'The Queen of Breathtaking Vistas,' Carnival Vista herself, who has her own Twitter account (@CarnivalVista).

Carnival Vista will announce the winner on July 15.
