We all love getting out our camera or smartphone on holiday and snapping the scenes and moments we want to cherish. It’s a great way of keeping the memories alive and there’s nothing better than sharing the photos when you get back from your trip. That’s why, earlier this year, we ran our Feel Good Photography competition.

We called on photography students from across the UK to share with us their favourite holiday shots taken at – or that represented – one of our many amazing holiday destinations.  And they didn’t disappoint! We saw azure seas, golden sands, delicious feasts and smiling faces aplenty from destinations including Spain, Greece and Cuba.

Our Competition Winner

We promised one talented winner the holiday of a lifetime on us. In the end, the top prize simply had to go to Sarah Forty of Bushey Meads School.

Her photo of the Barcelona skyline, framed by the elegant curves of one of famous architect Antoni Gaudi’s structures, wowed us. We loved the sense of exploration in the image. It felt like a doorway to a new adventure, an intriguing new story to be told; and we thought the contrast of foreground and background was inspired. Congratulations Sarah!

It wasn’t an easy choice though. We received plenty of fantastic entries, and you can take a look at some of our favourites below.
