MANCHESTER WOMAN WINS LASTMINUTE.COM COMPETITION TO FIND THE UK’S TOP TRAVEL PICS

A woman from Manchester has won a nationwide lastminute.com photography competition, looking for the UK’s best travel shots.

The travel tech leader launched the search for the best photos from around the world as part of the brand’s 25th anniversary celebrations. 25 winners, including Leesa Beckwith were selected for the display.

She will receive a £250 voucher from the company to fund future travels, as well as a ticket to the London Eye to see her image on display.

Leesa, whose photo was taken in Nabq in Egypt on her first go at scuba diving, said:

“I am still in shock over being picked as a prize winner – it was a wonderful surprise. I am delighted to be able to share such a wonderful moment and personal achievement with others.  I was 50 years old when I took this scuba diving trip and it took me all my courage to do it and I was so glad I did.  It was like another world, the coral reef and the beauty of the fish was breath-taking.”

With more than 1000 entries from across the UK, the most popular theme for images was time spent with family and friends, with the second theme being special occasions and romantic moments, such as proposals (40%). Nearly 4 in 10 images were of beautiful natural wonders, such as beaches and sunsets. Paris was the most photographed location within the entries outside of London.
