Holiday Extras’ People Pics competition hotting up

Holiday Extras' People Pics competition
Who will wow our judge, travel dude Melvin?

Thomas Cook vouchers worth £750 and an iPad 2 up for grabs

Leading travel add-ons company Holiday Extras is offering £750 worth of Thomas Cook vouchers and an iPad 2 to two travellers who can blow the judge away with their stunning or side-splitting shots of people.

Photos in the People Pics competition will be judged by top travel blogger Melvin Boecher of, who is looking for one photo that will “knock his socks off” and one that’s “just too funny for words”.

To enter, travellers and travel bloggers just need to upload a post with a maximum of two pictures of people onto their travel blog or website, and inform Holiday Extras via Twitter or Facebook.

Entrants without their own website can send in their People Pics via Facebook.

Melvin Boecher, judge and founder of, said: “It won’t be easy to blow off my socks – I’m well prepared and wear several layers of socks! But I must admit that there are already some very good entries. I’m looking forward to more and to a full afternoon browsing through all those photos to choose the best ones.”

Steven Hill, Lead SEO Strategist at, said: “The response to People Pics has been fantastic. Using social media to run this competition means we can reach out to our customers and way beyond.”

All entries must be received by 5.00pm GMT on 17 December 2012.
