Content can consist of photos, videos, articles and blog posts. The content must be easily accessible from a single, simple URL that can be shared or clicked on in a browser.
ALL ITEMS MUST CONTAIN A PHOTO
Yes, even videos.
The content you find on the web, should be oriented to advising, educating or helping the traveler learn about the destination. As you curate the content, you should feel a sense of satisfaction or accomplishment after reading it.
The content should describe the destination you are curating. Example, if you are curating content for "New York City", the content should be referring to New York City, not Long Island, Connecticut or other nearby cities.
There is a strict policy against curating content that promotes any third party product or service by another travel or tour company
