As part of our partnership with the ‘See Australia with Schick’ promotion we ran the ‘Wish We Were There’ photo assignment. Now that the assignment has closed, and with over 500 entries, we are excited to announce the winners!

To take part in Wish We Were There you simply needed to share your favourite holiday photos that made us really wish we could have been there with you enjoying the moment. It could be an action shot, a moment of peaceful contemplation, a stunning landscape, something truly bizarre or just pure fun.

There were some fantastic prizes on offer. The winner has won a COOLPIX P500 Travel Pack which includes:

  • A Nikon COOLPIX P500 – boasting an astounding 36x super zoom with a 22.5mm wide angle lens, 12.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and Full (1080p) HD movie recording, all in a compact body, makes the P500 a perfect travel camera (valued at RRP $599). Read more about the P500 here
  • The Travel Book – a journey through every country in the world from Lonely Planet (valued at RRP $100).
  • Schick Prize Pack – Over $90 worth of Schick, Banana Boat and Wet Ones products.

We’re proud to announce ‘Iancaus2001’ as the winner.

‘Bike on Boat’ by Lmzelis


Judges comments: “The modern hi-tech bikes on the old wooden boat is a great contradiction. I love the complete lack of interest by the boatman with his back to the camera. I want to be there because it says modern adventure in a faraway place…”
