Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 22, 2009 -- Warner Leisure Hotels, the first UK hotel group to launch a digital photo competition via Flickr for its guests, has announced the completion of the final judging of the Warner Leisure Hotels Spring Photo Competition.
The competition began in March and guests were invited to submit spring images taken at any of the Warner Leisure Hotels locations, or around and about the locality. Entrants were then allowed to upload and share their photos on the Warner Leisure Hotels group within Flickr.com.
The judges were greatly impressed by the diversity of images, a selection of which is being shown online. Competition was fierce, and after much deliberation the winning image was chosen as a stunning scene of the Bembridge coast in the Isle of Wight, at low tide. A cheeky squirrel caught on the lawn at Bodelwyddan Castle stole second place, followed by the picturesque seaside view off the newly decked terrace at Norton Grange on the Isle of Wight.
Warner Leisure Hotels has thirteen locations, both country and coastal, ideal for lazy UK summer holidays and the perfect opportunity to capture some idyllic photos.
Following on from the success of the spring competition, and all the fantastic shots that were submitted, Warner Leisure Hotels is again challenging both hotel guests and the general public to enter their favourite summer images taken either at one of the locations, or indeed in the locality.
Adding to the available photo opportunities, four of the historic gardens owned by Warner Leisure Hotels - Thoresby Hall on Nottinghamshire, Holme Lacy House in Herefordshire, Cricket St Thomas in Somerset and Littlecote House in Berkshire are opening for The National Gardens Scheme.
