Back in June this year, we launched a competition asking all our customers to send us their favourite holiday snaps. In return, we would pick a winner to receive free flights, plus they and another four runners up would also receive a hand-drawn colouring sketch of their picture.

We were overwhelmed by the entries – a lot of you enthusiastically tweeted, Instagrammed and messaged us some really amazing pictures, making the selection process very hard! Here are only a few of the beautiful entries we received.

RUNNER UP: Ms S. Wilcock from Wigan, who sent us an incredible shot of Amalfi, Italy. Unfortunately, we were too excited for her to see her sketch that we posted it without taking a picture first – whoops! But we will publish it soon, promise!
