Photo Competition: Another chance to win!

We were overwhelmed by the number of images you guys posted on our Facebook wall for the  InterRail photo competition. A whopping 1400+ in fact! Well, those of you who uploaded images but didn’t make it into the final 10, you have another chance to win! We’re offering 5 of you a 2-night stay in the destination of your choice at any of our properties.

We’ve decided to extend the competition and open up the voting again. This time, to make the most of all those wonderful photographs you uploaded to our wall, we’ve devised a number of new categories: People, Fun, Culture, Landscape and lastly, Creative.

Need to Know

• Every Monday for 5 weeks we will create a new Facebook album, each with a different theme.

• For each category we will select our 10 favourite images from those uploaded on the wall between 11th August 2010 and 1st September 2010 labelled “photo competition”.

• Facebook fans, you will then have 1 week to ‘like’ your favourite image in that album.

• A winner will be announced every Monday until 1st November 2010 when all 5 categories have been voted on.

The Prize

The competition will run for 5 weeks and the winner of each category will receive a 2-night stay for 2 people at the hostel of their choice anywhere in the world up to the value of €180. There will be a total of 5 winners (one from each category).
