the gap-year guidebook and gap-year.com photography competition – winner announced! May 20, 2011

Posted by Alex, Managing Director in the gap-year guidebook.

After long period of deliberation, we have now chosen the winner of the second year of the gap-year guidebook and gap-year.comtravel photography competition.We had a huge number of fantastic entries from around the world, proving that the spirit of the gap-year is alive and kicking.

Our competition committee – made up of the editorial and production staff at the gap-year guidebook and gap-year.com – decided that Oliver Mosse’s image had a fantastic mix of ingredients: happiness; the meeting of cultures; a sense of community; and the feeling that the world is a better place when people come together to learn from each other.

Well done Oliver. Your image will feature prominently in the next edition of the gap-year guidebook 2012- due for publication in November 2012.

Here’s what Oli, from Finchley in London, UK, had to say about the photo:

“The photo was taken in north Thailand, Chiang Mai, 2009. I traveled with my friend Nick (in photo), we started in India, then traveled down southeast Asia, starting in Thailand and ending up in Indonesia. After that we went to Australia, New Zealand, Figi, Canada and the USA. I found the experience hugely rewarding and character building. Interacting with such a large range of people thoroughly prepared me for uni and ignited my thrust for adventure.”

If you are – or know of – a former “gapper” who has a story to tell about their experience, or you are an organisation or school who wish to make contact with people planning gap-years and career breaks, drop us a line to discuss how the gap-year guidebook might be able to help.

The gap-year guidebook 2011 is available to buy as a printed guide or eBook version, via our bookshop.
