Hol­i­days that are pic­ture per­fect

Hun­dreds of young­sters cap­ture their favourite mo­ments on cam­era to en­ter Thomas Cook’s spe­cial con­test for bud­ding re­porters

The Chronicle - - News -

S mile please – and say, “Cheese!” Happy young hol­i­day­mak­ers have been trav­el­ling the globe this sum­mer and they’ve cap­tured the best and bright­est mo­ments of their sun­shine break on cam­era.

Lead­ing travel com­pany Thomas Cook asked tiny trav­ellers and teenage tourists to freeze-frame those mag­i­cal hol­i­day mo­ments to re­mem­ber long af­ter the lug­gage has been un­loaded and the sou­venirs given to Grandma and Grandad.

It was part of a cam­paign to show­case its fam­ily hol­i­days, with bud­ding re­porters putting pen to pa­per or tap­ping their key­boards to cre­ate their very own travel re­views. And hun­dreds of young snap­pers have shared their favourite mo­ments and most ex­cit­ing ex­pe­ri­ences in the Say Cheese Hol­i­day Snap of the Year Com­pe­ti­tion – and put them­selves in the frame for some fan­tas­tic prizes.

For­get Mum’s dull sight-see­ing snaps or Dad’s daily diary of what’s for lunch, you’ve sent snaps of sen­sa­tional sun­rises wor­thy of a wall mount­ing and com­i­cal pho­tos of your lit­tle broth­ers fall­ing asleep in their sup­per or slid­ing head­first off the float­ing flamingo.

And you’ve told us why that mag­i­cal mo­ment summed up what was spe­cial about your time away and made it the “best hol­i­day ever”. There is one win­ner from each of two age groups – the eights and un­der, and the nine to 15-year-olds, who will each be re­warded with an iPad mini, and some Lollo and Bernie kids’ club mas­cot good­ies.

And, of course, they get the chance to show off their win­ning im­age to thou­sands of peo­ple in the coun­try’s top re­gional news­pa­per ti­tles – as well as tak­ing pride of place in the fam­ily photo al­bum.

So, many thanks to all the ju­nior snap­pers. Thomas Cook re­ceived so many amaz­ing en­tries which made judges both gig­gle and gaze at in won­der. Here are the two win­ning pho­tos…
