A tropical beach, the garden in your backyard, the top of a mountain, a park bench … where is your favorite place on Earth?

Captivate Network wants to know, and they want to see a photo, too. The digital media company you may recognize for providing content in more than 10,000 office elevator displays across North America has launched its Favorite Place on Earth photo contest.
