We decided that summer was the perfect time to hold a photo competition at our Welcome Aboard attractions – and with much mention of selfies lately, we couldn’t think of a better type of photo!

Our Summer Selfie Competition began in mid-January and ran through until the end of February. Our Welcome Aboard office staff enjoyed checking up on the entry page on our website every few days to see the great new shots that had been uploaded by our happy customers, and the staff at our attractions could be seen getting involved in the photos too: we spotted a few selfies taken by customers with our Christchurch Tram drivers, and a few more photos taken at Punting on the Avon where punters could be seen posing in the background!

By the end of the competition we found it difficult to narrow the images down to a short-list of our favourite entries. However, one photo stood out in the end, and we decided that Greg and Rachel Brocherie had to be our Summer Selfie Competition winners – we just couldn’t go past their smiling family selfie on board one of our Trams. The family were very happy to hear about their win, and were pleased to receive their GoPro!
