To enter, participants may send their photos to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Only one photo is allowed per entry. Facebook users may vote by clicking “Like” on their favorite photos. The winners are chosen for the amount of “Likes” the photo receives.
The top five photo winners will be announced on Friday, Apr. 29. First Prize — Two-night stay, daily cabana use, and dinner for two at Palme d’Or; Second Prize — Sunday champagne brunch for four guests; Third Prize — Couples massage at the Biltmore Spa; Fourth Prize — Round of golf for four guests at the Biltmore Golf Course, and Fifth Prize — Culinary class for two guests at the Biltmore Culinary Academy.
The Biltmore is a National Historic Landmark located in Coral Gables. The 273-room hotel resembles classic Italian, Moorish, and Spanish architectural influences spread over 150-acres of tropical landscape.
A favorite of world leaders and notables since its opening in 1926, the hotel offers a restored Donald Ross 18-hole, 71 par championship golf course; tennis; the largest hotel pool in the country; private cabanas; a European spa, and an award-winning fitness center.
The hotel’s dining destinations include the acclaimed Palme d’Or, which Zagat calls one of the best restaurants in the country; Fontana, an Italian restaurant surrounding the Biltmore fountain, and the poolside Cascade. In 2009, the hotel unveiled its culinary academy offering an array of hands-on cooking classes for adults and children.
