Blog Photo Competition, July Winners !

We are happy to announce the first three winners in the cottages4you blog photo competition!

The jury had a hard time selecting the winners as the quality of the photo’s was high. A sophisticated scoring mechanism helped us select the winners of the cottages4you iPod Nano.

The jury responsible for selecting the winners:

  • Andrew Hill: Manager Online Services
  • Nigel Flory: Holiday Cottages Group Image Management
  • Wayne Dentith: Professional Photographer

The jury scored all entries on “Holiday Feel”, “Composition”, “Subject”, “Impact” and “Originality” with “Holiday Feel” and “Originality” being the main criteria.

After selection we may now congratulate the following winners with their cottages4you iPod Nano:

Action: Amy Wearing with “Magical Moment when Daisy discovered kite flying”

Andrew: “A simple, uncluttered, straightforward shot that captures a wonderful holiday memory and an exciting moment as Daisy manages to make her kite fly for the first time.”

Nigel: “captures a moment to treasure…”

Wayne: “Brilliant action shot with good use of composition, this is what holidays are all about!”

Cottage Life: Gavin J Wilson with “Kubb on the Lawn (Cornwall 2006)”

Andrew:A family having great fun at their holiday cottage – this snap perfectly captures a relaxed, enjoyable afternoon in the garden, enjoying the time away.

Nigel: “Having fun in the garden, making full use of all the facilities of the cottage”

Wayne: “A great fun shot of all the family enjoying a well deserved break.”

Nature: Jane Wood with “A timeless taste of the beach!”

Andrew: “So many things to find on the beach, and so little time. This photo perfectly captures the end of another day spent immersed in nature on holiday. The silhouette of the child against the setting sun produces an interesting and engaging image.

Nigel: “A Long day of exploration draws to a close”

Wayne: “This image captures a truly special moment at the end of another fun packed sunny day.”

Congratulations to you all!
