Photo Competition 2011

CONGRATULATIONS, WE HAVE A WINNER!

Congratulations to Markus Pesendorfer from Austria who has emerged as the winner of the To Tuscany 2011 Photocompetition with his delightful photo of his children sitting on the steps of a Trullo.

We have really enjoyed seeing all the votes coming in on our ‘live vote’ buttons. Of course the votes had to be checked to ensure it was a fair competition and any multiple votes were removed, this is why some of the numbers have changed so much.

The top 5 photos are below. Underneath these are all the other entries which are in alphabetical order according to first name.

Our fantastic prizes are being sent to the winners and we would like thank everyone for entering their photos and also for voting. We hope it has inspired those of you travelling with us this year to enter the competition for 2012!
