This edition’s number one winner is Sharon Yap, who struck gold with her photo of Havana’s Capitolio from a unique vantage point – a classic convertible American car.
Second place goes to Chantell Livingstone who beautifully captured the beauty of Varadero’s pristine, sugary soft white sands, gently lapped by the most crystalline waters.
Third place is for Dave Allen who took a stunning shot of the jaw-dropping landscape of Viñales, with its iconic tall palms and peculiar mogotes in the distance.
We are indeed very happy to see that our three winning photographs showcased different aspects of a Cuba holiday, and the many experiences you can have in this kaleidoscopic Caribbean island: city, beach and nature.
And here they are, our smiling winners happily (and deservedly) showing off their prizes.
First up we have Sharon Yap, cheerfully posing with her £500 The Holiday Place voucher, already planning which one of our unforgettable holidays she is going to put it towards.
She captioned her photo with the following thank you words:
"Here is our photo holding our fantastic prize. Looking forward to booking another holiday with you :-) Thank you x"
Next up is the cute grin of Chantell Livingstone’s son as he proudly holds his mummy’s well-earned Canon professional camera. The little one even provided us with a quote captioning his photo:
"Thanks to this hat and The Holiday Place for rewarding my Mummy with this beautiful camera... she just needs to book another holiday with you guys to put it to good use!"
And lastly, there’s our third prize winners, Dave Allen and his partner, who struck up a lovely pose showcasing their £150 John Lewis vouchers right next to a very appropriately Cuban cigar and a car number plate.
"Thank you again - we loved our Cuban experience and will enjoy our prize. We have been really impressed with The Holiday Place and have already recommended you to our friends."
Well, we couldn’t be happier with such lovely thank you comments and these snaps of our happy winners fill us with enormous pride.
Participating is all that matters
Of course we never forget about our enthusiastic, talented non-winners and the fun, evocative photographs they took whilst showcasing our colours. They all deserve a space here for all to see...
If you browse through all of them you'll find that they show a candid, authentic side to our destinations and they reflect the kind of holidays we want our holidaymakers to enjoy: fun, carefree, thought-provoking, exciting, enriching and soul-reviving. We're very grateful for each one of them so a warm pat on the back to all those who sent them!
