Cape Town Tourism is shining the spotlight on citizen tourism this September as the city celebrates Tourism Month.
Says Cape Town Tourism CEO, Enver Duminy; “Despite living in The New York Times’ Number 1 Place to Visit in 2014, Capetonians sometimes forget to go out and enjoy all the wonderful experiences, new and old, that our city has to offer.
Every September, we give the people of Cape Town a challenge; go and explore your own back yard, your neighbourhoods, the beautiful place that is Cape Town…and Cape Town Tourism is going to help you do that.”
Snap, Share & Win
Locals will have noticed a number of ‘Yellow Frames’ going up at viewing sites around Cape Town; including the V&A Waterfront, Signal Hill, Eden on the Bay in Blaauwberg and more recently at Look Out Hill in Khayelitsha. The 2.8m tall by 4m wide frames designed by artist Porky Heffer, are part of a World Design Capital Project to highlight the various perspectives of Table Mountain from viewing spots across Cape Town.
Throughout September, Cape Town Tourism will be encouraging members of the public to dress up or create playful interpretations of the framed view with their friends and families, photograph it and then share to social media using #lovecapetown.
Open to Cape Town residents only, all entries should feature the hashtag #lovecapetown. The best picture will win a deluxe Cape Town Peninsula-wide experience including meals, jewellery, trips, tours and accommodation worth close to R 30 000.
