Vienna Tourist Board

Vienna competition for gay couples

In the wake of Conchita Wurst and all things Eurovision, the city of Vienna and gay news website Pink News have joined forces to offer gay couples the chance to win a free trip to the colourful Austrian capital.

All couples have to do is to submit a photo of themselves hugging with a bit of information about who they are to the website www.we-are.wien.info.

The winning couple will be whisked away to explore the city in four busy days - all the while having their trip photographed by a professional photographer. The photos will then be uploaded to the website along with other shots of happy couples in the capital.

The competition is part of the city's "WE ARE IN VIENNA" campaign from the Vienna Tourist Board, that aims to show how being gay is part of life in the city.

The campaign website already features some couples who have been photographed in their favourite places in Vienna, including Alfred and Romain in the Amalienbad, Paula and Sophie in the national library, and Caspar and Kris in the National History Museum.

To see and hear from more couple for whom Vienna represents something special visit the www.we-are.wien.info website.
