I know how everyone loves a chance to win great prizes like vacations, upgrades and tickets.

Details on StarAlliance.com are a bit thin, but mark your calendars for February 8th, the first day of the new contest.

This from StarAlliance.com:

Star Alliance Picture Your Upgrade
Win great prizes and upgrades with the new Star Alliance ‘Picture Your Upgrade’ app.

To celebrate Gold Status benefits across 27 member airlines, Star Alliance has launched ‘Picture your Upgrade’, a new mobile app-based competition that gives you the chance to win exclusive prizes, including VIP getaways, upgrades to Star Alliance Gold Status and Round the World Business Class tickets, just by taking photos.

The app is free to download and will be available on iPhone, Android and BlackBerry.

The competition runs from 8th February until 4th April 2012.
