After submission, participants are encouraged to share their photo on Facebook with as many of their friends as possible in order to accumulate votes that are cast by using the button next to each entry on the contest page. The contest ends on July 31, 2013, after which the entry that has been voted for the most wins.
Inspired by the success of their first and second contests, which received great exposure on Facebook and interaction from thousands of Facebook fans, Singing Sands hopes to continue to do its part to increase Belize’s popularity as a tourist destination and reward its fans on Facebook by offering attractive giveaways. This time around, the resort has decided to also center their Facebook contest around a worthy cause – by entering the competition, participants pledge to make a small donation of supplies to the Placencia Humane Society, should their entry win in the competition. Singing Sands sees this contest as a perfectly relevant opportunity to assist the local Humane Society, as one of the criteria for entry is the submission of photos featuring pets. The resort also hopes to continue increasing the exposure of Maya Beach, a rapidly growing tourist destination in the southern part of the country that it sees someday rivaling the best visitor hotspots in Belize, including San Ignacio, San Pedro and Placencia.
About the Placencia Humane Society – like other humane societies throughout the world, the Placencia Humane Society is a charitable organization dedicated to the welfare of household pets. They offer much-needed veterinary clinics and related services, as well as adoption programs for stray, abandoned, or injured dogs and cats. They coordinate yearly visits of veterinary teams from abroad to offer high-quality, voluntary services to pets in Placencia. They also organize various projects to help increase an awareness of animal rights to the public, educate pet owners, eradicate animal disease, and rescue and nurse abandoned pets back to health. They rely mostly on material donations and voluntary assistance from the public and the international animal-care community.

Maya Beach – Maya Beach is a gorgeous beachfront community located just north of the popular town of Placencia, Belize. Unlike Placencia, Maya Beach is secluded and quiet, offering a tranquil vacation to guests who wish to have the beach and sea to themselves. Maya Beach is far removed from the bustle of town, yet resorts in this area still provide all of the usual amenities to guests, including air conditioning, heated water, full-service restaurants serving gourmet dishes, and inland and marine tours. The area is becoming slowly populated by businesses catering to the tourist market, as well as by private residential homes; for now, however, it is still newly-discoverable by visitors to its shores.
Please note that some restrictions apply – all expenses incurred during the stay at Singing Sands outside of the promotion will be the responsibility of the winner. A mandatory 9% tax and 5% service charge are not included in the value of the giveaway; the winner is solely responsible for these fees. The prize cannot be redeemed during blackout dates (December 15th - January 6th). Reservation dates are further subject to availability. Please note that the contest is for pet owners only – any entry that does not feature pets will be disqualified. Past contest winners are not eligible for participation; the winner of this contest will also not be eligible for participation in any future contests sponsored and/or hosted by Singing Sands Inn.
