From Aspen to Hawaii a flurry of Australian and New Zealand Instagrammers told us where they love to go on holidays and shared creative photos with their hands making the heart shape during our summer snaps competition we’ve affectionately named #JRLoveHolidays.
There were many notable entries so here is an overview of the most inspiring summer snaps.
1/ Our Week 1 winner Jess received an incredible 4087 likes and deservedly so, she noted that her dream was to travel the world and next on her list was Japan. Her Instagram photo of the fairground Ferris wheel entry certainly has dream like quality to it and made us think of those vintage childhood holidays.
2/ Perth Makeup artist Christina was the week 2 winner of our #JRLoveHolidays competition and had us all falling in love again. She shared a romantic wedding rings and ribbon photo on a Tiffany eggshell blue background, stating Bali as one of her favourite places on earth. Her photo won the hearts of 457 other Instagrammers, as she reminded us that love and travel go hand in hand.
3/ Craig entered our competition in the first week, see point 7/ and then a second time in week 3 of the contest. His persistence paid off as his Hawaii photo received a staggering 4899 likes, making him our final winner. The focus of the rolling hills inside the heart shape is a great touch to the photo and just highlights the idyllic paradise nature of Hawaii.
4/Andra and Richey are pursuing their dreams of travelling the world. In their photo, the view of the city skyline and boats fits perfectly in the hand heart shape; and I am sure you will agree that it is one of the most picturesque of all the Summer Snap entries.
5/Anna’s photo captures the sunset in Thailand beautifully
6/ A creative evening shot of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge by Pierre Lattouf l reminded us there is no place like home.
7/Craig loves Sydney too; he includes the Sydney Tower in his photo:
8/ Anth & James love to holiday in Aspen and there is a classic feel to their photo:
