Thank you to everyone who entered our Big Picture competition in February this year – there are clearly some exceptional photographers amongst you– and it really created a debate in the office when it came down to judging our winners!
There were three categories in which you could enter; adventure, landscapes or culture. Two runners up won an Amazon Fire HD Tablet and the overall winner won a Nikon D3300 SLR camera.
Our Overall Competition Winner
Photographed by Richard Fell and entered into our Culture category
“The photo was taken on the Mekong Delta in Cambodia. I was on a boat and the family passed by in their canoe. We waved from the boat and the boys started to blow kisses. They were so cute and almost fell out of their canoe laughing! I think the highlight of my trip were the people: so friendly and gentle. A very memorable holiday!”
Congratulations Richard! You are the lucky winner of a Nikon D3300 SLR camera! We felt that it really summed up the warmth of the locals in Southeast Asia.

“The photo was taken in November 2016 on your Vietnam and Cambodia Discovery tour. It shows a grandmother and child in one of the Dao houses in rural northern Vietnam where our group were treated to a delicious home-cooked lunch by this lady’s family – an unforgettable and delicious meal giving us an opportunity to experience Dao hospitality and culture. One of the highlights of the tour!”
