We love a good competition and in the spirit of our motto, Take Life Higher, we’re running THREE of them during 2016.
Whether you’re a passenger who sends us their best ‘float face’ from your hot air balloon ride or a commuter who spots one of our balloons on their train journey to work, you could be in with the chance to win some great prizes.
Read on for more details.
Already one of our passengers? Fancy entering a competition to win a fabulous case of wine?
Then show us your #FloatFace!
We want to see what a wonderful time you had on your hot air balloon ride just from the expression on your face during the flight.
Whether it’s an excited selfie with our pilot, a beaming smile with the views behind you or a look of awe as the burners fire above you, anything goes as long as it shows just what an amazing experience you had.
We’ll share as many of our favourites with our followers as we can and will be choosing one competition winner each month during our flying season (March to October).
See some of the previous winners here, along with a selection of the other #floatface images that we also loved.
So get your very best #FloatFace on and good luck!
We would also love to see any other photos you take on your balloon ride – and there could be a surprise treat in it for you!
Some of the best photographs we saw last season were taken by you, our passengers and now it’s easier than ever to send them to us, with our new email address especially for pictures – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Or you can tag us in any photographs you post on social media using the hashtag #TakeLifeHigher and we will of course share as many of them as possible with our followers. We’ll also post our favourites right here on our website – click here to see some of the best #TakeLifeHigher images passengers have shared with us so far.
Any photographs we really love could win a random spot prize – anything from a bottle of Prosecco to one of our yummy chocolate hearts or even a voucher for another brilliant experience day.
And last but by no means least…
Spot The Balloon Competition
Our big red Virgin hot air balloons have been a regular sight in the summer skies for more than 20 years and spotting one this season could win you an unforgettable balloon ride for two!
If you see one of our beautiful balloons flying nearby (and it is legal and safe for you to do so!), snap a quick photo and post it on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest using the hashtag #BalloonSpotter to enter our Spot The Balloon competition.
Tell us a bit about where you spotted it, make sure you tag us in the photo and our favourite at the end of the year will win a Sunrise Gift Package For Two – a hot air balloon ride for two people, plus our popular helium balloon in a box and a box of milk chocolate Champagne truffles.
For those of you who don’t ‘do’ social media, you can also email your entry to the competition to email@example.com.
Why not try and grab a selfie with our hot air balloon in the background or capture its reflection as it drifts over a calm lake? Did you spot one on your morning commute, wake up to the sound of us flying over your house or watch as we came into land in a nearby field?
Be as creative as you like but keep it real, as anything obviously ‘photoshopped’ will be discounted!
Again, we’ll share our favourite photos with our social media followers, with the competition winner chosen at the end of November 2016.
You can also check out some of our shortlisted entries here, as we’ve had so many fantastic entries sent in already that we just had to share them here on our website!
