Back in September we launched our Lights, Camera Backpack Gap Year competition, which ran until earlier this month. We had almost 100 entries, and we loved hearing your stories all about your love of adventure!
Just in case you have forgotten, here’s a little recap on the competition. To enter the first stage entrants were asked to upload an image of themselves and the friend they would like to travel with. Once the final entry date was closed the public were then asked to vote for their favourite, and the 10 travel buddies with the most votes were then asked to make a 60 second video to showcase their passion for travel and adventurous spirit. The final stage again was left to the public to vote for their favourite finalist.
The finalists submitted some fantastic footage, which we hoped you enjoyed as much as we did. They all shared an enthusiastic love of travel and adventure, all eager to win the chance to go on the trip of a lifetime. Thanks to Gapyear.com and Student Universe, our Gap Year competition winner will be given the chance to pick from the below
Now let’s cut to the chase, overall we received almost 100 entries and a total of 8,693 votes throughout the competition.
The final 10 were: Amanda Collis, Tom Paulson, Tayo Jaiyesimi, Hazel Oakes, Georgina McKimm, Millie Cathrall, Sandra Gartwood and Eleftheria Tsouni, with all receiving an MW travel kit for reaching the final round. However there can only be one winner and for 2017 Tom Paulson is our Lights Camera Backpack competition winner with a total of 2,560 votes!! Huge congratulations to Tom, we can’t wait to hear all about his big adventure.
