We thought, if we hold a competition to share photos of France from our readers around the world we would receive a few great photos…

Postcard from France Contest

In just one week we received more than 250 photos and all of them were great! Some of them were more technically advanced, some had such beautiful subject matter that you just had to aim and point, some were so gorgeously colourful it took your breath away. Here at The Good Life France we’re used to working with professional photographers and it is not an exaggeration to say that several of those who sent images in would absolutely give the pros a run for their money.

So, how did we pick a winner?

In the end we decided it was impossible and unfair for us to choose because each day bought a fresh batch of beautiful photos and it just got harder and harder to agree. So, we turned the competition over to our more than 12000 Twitter and Facebook friends to pick the winner by voting for their favourite and thousands of votes were cast!

To everyone who sent in a photo, “Liked” and “Shared” on Facebook and spread the word on Twitter – THANK YOU SO MUCH.

The Winner

Her photograph of a winding walkway in the centre of St Paul de Vence in Provence struck a chord with many viewers with its beautiful colours and evocative quality of one of the most loved areas of France.

Second was Donna and John Weatherhead from Brisbane, Australia whose photograph of Riquewihr in Alsace perfectly depicted a mellow day in the town.

Third was another picturesque St Paul de Vence photo (seems you all can’t get enough of the lovely town) by Kylie Russell from Victoria, Australia

Fourth was “A beautiful February morning in Honfleur” by Sally Coppack, Deux Sevres, France
