We are pleased to announce the winner of our 2012 photo competition. This year we’ve had some amazing entries and it’s been extremely difficult to choose the best. Our judge, photographer Nicola Ferguson from Daffodil Waves Photography, used her professional eye to select three very deserving winners.

In third place is Martin Chamberlain. Nicola said: ‘I would hang this picture on my wall. There’s something very haunting about it but in a good way.

In second place is, Gemma Evans. Nicola chose this because she ‘loves the bright colours and the composition.’

And the winner is…

Congratulations Kate Williams! Nicola said: ‘This image makes me want to dream. I love the relaxing feeling it gives.’

All winners will be contacted via Facebook, twitter or e-mail depending on how you submitted your entry. Runners up will receive a £50 Virgin Experience Days gift card and the winner will receive £100 Virgin Experience Days gift card.

Congratulations to all three winners and a Big Thank You for your entries. We’ve enjoyed every bit of this season and we look forward to doing it all again next year!
