Summer photo contest winners!

Kia ora,

In last month’s Travelbug newsletter we ran a contest to find the best Summer-themed photo taken by subscribers, Facebook and Twitter followers.

Firstly, thank you to everyone who entered – we had a great time going through each one, reading the stories and recounting your best summer memories. It was a privilege for us to share in your New Zealand summer!

It certainly was hard going, but of the entries we received we picked out 3 photos that jumped out at us and of these 3, we had to pick one winner. Here are the results!


Buddy having a good shake after a swim

We loved this action shot of Buddy doing what dogs do best. It oozes a certain charm that captures that good ol’ family summer holiday spirit. Thanks to Lynley from Paeroa, a Travelbug t-shirt is on its way to you!

 Jackson and his new best friend, Mr Giraffe

You could hear the collective “awww!” from the other side of the building when we saw this one. A sweet giraffe shows little Jackson a bit of summer love! Cheers to Sally from Wellington for sharing this picture of her grandson. A t-shirt for Jackson is in order, too!

And the winner of the $200 Travelbug credit goes to…

Riding high aboard the Tucker Thompson

Congratulations to Caroline and Lionel who snapped this awesome picture aboard the Tucker Thompson tall ship in Northland. Our team thought it encapsulated a spirit of adventure alive in all Kiwis and is simply a great summer flick!

Thanks again to everyone who sent in their photos. Until next time, adios!
