Last month, we at First Choice released an interactive infographic asking people around the globe to share which country they think is the most beautiful. This project has inspired thousands of people to discuss the question on Twitter and hundreds more to create Pinterest boards of the countries, landscapes, people and cultures that inspire them.
The response has been so phenomenal that we have decided to extend voting for an extra week. Pinterest boards will be judged* to win a Nikon 3100 camera, and one lucky Twitter entry will be picked at random to win an iPhone 4S. The competition will now close at midnight GMT on Friday the 18th of May; users are free to explore the infographic and vote after this date, but their submissions will no longer be eligible to win.
At the time of publishing this post, voters say the top ten most beautiful countries in the world are:
Does this surprise you? If so, get in there and vote for the country you think is the most beautiful! If you really want your favourite country to win, let your friends, family and colleagues know so they can vote too. Join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #conflictofpinterest.
Finally, make sure to check out First Choice’s Pinterest board, where we re-pin our favourite submitted photographs from locations all over the globe. We hope this inspires you to do some exploring of your own, and discover which country you think is the most beautiful in the world.
Pinterest submissions will be judged by TravelMail/Daily Mail Online editor, Sarah Gordon @SaritaJG . First Choice travel expert and Communications Director Fiona Jennings and travel photographer Stuart Dunn. Dunn won a Travel Photographer of the Year 2011 award in the “One Shot – Wild Moments” category, and is exhibiting at the Royal Geographical Society in London this summer as well as travelling the world for his job as a cameraman for the BBC, National Geographic and Discovery Channels.
