This Is the Winner for the #HayoTravel Photo Contest And Finalists!
5 December, 2014
Earlier this month we launched our first photo contest “What’s Your Favorite Travel Moment” to win the perfect Herschel Travel Duffle Bag. After hundreds of submissions, the contest was closed this week and our judges decided among the best submissions the winner for the #HayoTravel photo contest. The criteria we had in consideration was around three aspects: beautiful composition, a compelling message explaining why was that your favorite travel moment and if the photo was inviting to travel.
Thanks to Teo Riádigos from Argentina, Alex Riquett from Colombia, Jen Pollack Bianco from Los Angeles, Jeremy Power Regimbal and Jackie Kai Ellis from Vancouver for judging and to all who participated in our contest! It was a close competition!
And the winner is….
That moment when the beauty of your surroundings makes you forget how many miles you have left. By @AdamRobertVaught !! CONGRATULATIONS!!
Here are the Top Finalists:
Throwback to chasing huge waves in Barcelona with @gonzalotudela. This is far from what we were expecting when we woke up in the morning to go surf. By @Deshoots
This is my favourite travel moment. Waking up after a cold sleep in the #Himalaya, opening the bedroom door, and seeing that Machapuchare has released herself from the clouds! By @LifeAdrift
This is Garibaldi Lake, made of glacier water and about 3 hrs hiking up to get to her. Cold water (duh) and insanely beautiful. This place is jaw dropping and one of those spots that photos just can’t do justice for, but I’ll try. More to come. By @Leighrighton.
My first attempt at night photography, and my new obsession. By @allypintucci

” New York Minute ” // I took this photo from the seat of my double decker bus tour ( you know the type ) As the bus halted to allow our guide to share a tidbit about the history and buildings around us, I took a minute to pause and capture this. I think that this illustrates the pace of living in New York City perfectly. It was refreshing as a visitor and not a native of the city to be in the thick of their rush hour, yet I found myself stuck at a far slower pace. When things get busy and hectic, remember to pause.
