If you have family and friends at World Youth Day, take a look at this exuberant video — you might see some familiar faces. Why? Because this video is comprised entirely of entries to our #KrakowtoRome Contest.

Every video, every photograph that is shared on social media with the hashtag #KrakowtoRome is automatically entered into the contest, from which two winners — one for video, one for photography — will be selected for a free trip to Rome. We’re already seeing some fantastic pilgim’s-eye views and in sharing them with Aleteia readers, we all get the festivities and prayers of World Youth Day from the perspective of those on the ground.

If you’re a pilgrim, and you haven’t yet used the hashtag #KrakowtoRome, what are you waiting for? Perhaps your picture, your video will be included in our next round-up!
