VOUBS has started with a single idea for providing place for online contests, where different professionals would be able to advertise themselves and get rewards for their work, while entrepreneurs and companies from all over the world could benefit from designers, photographers, artists, copywriters and other individuals.
VOUBS now is a globally accessible online contest platform providing real-time contest management to professionals, entrepreneurs and companies across the world. Amassing a wealth of support from partners and investors in 2014, VOUBS has since become a global powerhouse of progression, featuring .bg and .com domains, over 100,000 registered users from 159 countries, hosting 275 contests with prizes totalling approximately 125,000 Euros and cultivating an unparalleled reputation of reliability.
The Highest Waterfalls
Do you know which are the highest waterfalls in the world? The TOP 1 certainly are Angel Falls in Venezuela, South America, with the magnificent height of 979 meters! Imagine a waterfall nearly 1 kilometer. WOW, right?! The second in line about height are Tugela Falls - which unlike Angel Falls, are on another continent - Africa. Last century it was discovered that they are 949 m high but 2 years ago a Czech scientist measured them 983m which makes it questionable whether they are the TOP of the world about waterfalls.
The Beauty of Waterfalls
It is not the height the most important feature that makes a waterfall well renown but the beauty. Who have not heard of Victoria falls in Zambia with its mysterious mist all around.
Or Niagara Falls with its three famous parts The Horseshoe ( in Canada), The Bridal Veil and the American Falls ( in USA)? One of the most famous Bulgarian authors of 19th century describes in its novel “To Chicago and back”: “.... Niagara Falls! Here at last!!... It took many minutes until we came to ourselves! All observers stood benumbed as in a tableau vivant! Everybody's face bore an imprint of infinite awe! All faces were serious, slightly pale and as if frozen! As if they were standing not before God's creation, but before God himself!... If anyone can describe this picture, please describe it; if anyone can photograph or paint it, please do so!... I cannot.“
Aleko Konstantinov gave a challenge - to the most amazing picture of Niagara Falls, but we, from VOUBS would love to travel anywhere in the world so we ask you to register photos of any waterfall you have been to.
And why in VOUBS?
We dare you to join in and to complete the challenge!
