WWOOFing PT is Giro!
Either if you are or have been a WWOOFer or a Host in Portugal, you probably know the meaning of the word Giro. Traveling is something giro! Agroecology is very giro! Volunteering, for WWOOFers, is definitely GIRO!! Giro, in Portugal, is an adjective for great, cool, interesting! That’s why we say: #WWOOFingPTisGiro!
Every year, WWOOF Portugal promotes a Photo Contest. The photos must be taken in Portugal and be related to WWOOF experiences. Either WWOOFers or Hosts can post as many pictures as they wish, but each person can be awarded with only one of the prizes.
WHAT?? ARE THERE PRIZES?
Yes! A WWOOF PT expert panel will analize each picture and select 3 authors to be awarded a 1-year Host or WWOOFer free subscription (extend your current membership or gift it to someone else) AND WWOOF PT stickers!
PLUS: The best picture according to our expert panel will also receive, at home, a T-shirt AND a WWOOF PT backpack!
And there is more!
Especially for those who post their pictures on Instagram or Facebook: the author of the post with more ‘likes’ will get, besides the free subscription and stickers, a beautiful WWOOF T-shirt at home!
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
Subscriptions will be accepted via Facebook, Instagram or e-mail.
On Facebook and Instagram, it will be considered all pictures posted between the 15th of November and 15th of December/2022 with the hashtag #WWOOFingPTisGiro AND tagging us @WWOOFpt on Instagram or ‘WWOOFPortugal’ on Facebook.
Per e-mail, it will be accepted JPG, JPEG, PNG or GIF files sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mention on the subject “WWOOFing PT is Giro!” so that we know what your e-mail is about 😉
HOW DO I INCREASE MY CHANCES TO WIN A PRIZE?
All pictures will be evaluated by our expert panel, and they will certainly get extra points if:
- there is proper lighting and your photos are in focus;
- the photo is accompanied by a story;
- there is a strong relation with WWOOF experiences: WWOOFers helping out with projects/tasks, mealtime gatherings, farm activities, WWOOFer accommodations, etc.
- if you subscribe through Instagram or Facebook, “likes” make a huge difference so, call your friends!
It’s ok to subscribe an old picture (not taken in 2022), but please don’t submit pics already sent on previous years contests. They will not be considered. And, remember: they must have been taken in Portugal!
WHAT ELSE IS IMPORTANT BEFORE I SUBSCRIBE MY PHOTO?

You also confirm that you have the permission of any persons in the work or, if they are under 16, the consent of their parent or guardian to grant WWOOF PT free of charge the right to use the photo in any manner and media, including without limitation, the right to publish, adapt, distribute, copy, display or translate in printed or electronic media, even if they are not the winning entries.
- Pictures sent out of the period of submissions will not be considered.
- To be eligile for one of the prizes, you must have a valid profile at WWOOF PT platform (WWOOFer or Host profile, doesn’t matter). It’s OK if it’s not active at the moment, but you must have at least one visit confirmed in your history.
