Virgin America wants your family vacation photos

Time to break out the blackmail photo album – Virgin America wants to see your most awkward family photos for a chance to upgrade to the ultimate family vacation.

In celebration of Virgin America’s San Francisco-Orlando flights, the always entertaining airline launched an online promotion with Awkward Family Photos that celebrates family vacations. All you have to do is upload your “most awkward” family vacation photos for a chance to receive four roundtrip tickets anywhere Virgin America flies for your next family vacation. In addition, those who submit a photo or vote on their favorites will score a 33.3 percent discount off their next family booking on the airline’s Orlando flights.

Travelers can enter their awkward family vacation photos and access the special discount on Orlando flights by visiting the airline’s Facebook page or starting today through October 5, 2010. Awkward Family Photos and Virgin America will then select the top 20 photos and allow the public to vote on their favorites from October 6-13, 2010. The awkward family vacation photo with the most votes as of October 13, 2010, will receive four roundtrip tickets anywhere Virgin America flies for their next family vacation. In addition, one lucky California entrant will score the ultimate Orlando family getaway – flights, hotel stay and the chance to attend Virgin America’s celebration of its new Orlando service on October 13, 2010.

Let’s go, travelers. Dig deep into those photo albums and look for the best embarrassing photo you can find. Big winners always include a mouth full of braces, teased-and-sprayed bangs from the 1980s and, of course, family photos that include animals.
