"I know we have an opinionated and curious audience in our online community," said Frommers.com editorial director David Lytle. "They also have keen eyes when it comes to photographing their journeys as we have seen in their own photo galleries. We really wanted to give them the opportunity to showcase their own viewpoint by finding the best image out there to be featured on the cover of a Frommer's Travel Guide. We're expecting some fierce competition."
