A huge congratulations to all our recent competition winners!
In June we have given away some great prizes with six competitions running for you to enter. These included a three week tour of India for two people in our travel photography competition, holidays to Nainital, Thekkady, Ooty and Jodhpur in our Homestay Holiday Auction contests and a $30/£20 Amazon.com voucher in our Guess the City competition.
We received hundreds of entries and all the winners have now been chosen!
TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION
We received some fantastic photos as entries to our travel photography competition and it took the judges some time to narrow down the winner. The standard of entry was very high so a huge congratulation to Maresa Esmee Smith from Watford in the UK who wins a three week tour of India for two people.
Maresa submitted the three entries below into the contest, showing her talent as a photographer in mixed lighting conditions with the ability to capture fantastic natural portrait shots of people.
We can’t wait to see the images Maresa takes on her trip to India which will see her visiting some of the most diverse sights of India including the Tibetan settlements of Dharamshala in North India, the iconic cities of Agra and Rajasthan, enjoying a houseboat experience in Jammu and Kashmir and experiencing a night time safari in the wildlife and big cat haven of Pali.
HOMESTAY HOLIDAY AUCTIONS
We’ve already announced some of our homestay holiday auction winners. Congratulations again to Jayanthi Sridhar who won a trip to Ooty for just Rs. 14.
Congratulations also to Bimal Mohta who wins a trip to Nainital for just Rs. 7.
Bimal was delighted to be picked as the winner and says, “I learnt about contest on the Mahindra Homestays website and entered just to have fun to try my luck. I am delighted to win the contest look forward to taking up my prize where I can stay with my family amidst nature and natural surroundings.”
We were also giving away a holiday to Jodhpur and the lucky winner was Sanjay Jain with a bid of Rs. 8.
Sanjay was delighted to win and told us, “Winning a holiday always is a great pleasure. One more chance to take a break with family, one more chance to explore.”
We hope the winners enjoy their trips!

Our popular guess the city competition saw a lot of correct entries! Did you get the answer right?
The answer was of course Rajasthan’s famous blue city; Jodhpur. Congratulations to Suzie Nichols who was selected as the winner of a $30/£20 Amazon.com voucher.
