AMResorts and Palmaïa, The House of AïA winners!
Thank you so much to all of the amazing travel agents who entered our “Wanderlust with WheelsUpNetwork” photo contest! We have received over 1,000 fantastic travel images from you which definitely made the voting process harder for our judges!
Before we announce these first 5 lucky winners, we want to share some of the comments you have left with your submissions. Our mission was to remind ourselves (and everyone) what an exceptionally beautiful and amazing world it is out there and we are beyond happy to have accomplished that:
"Hi thank you for this great contest. I know so many of us agents have been busting our butts helping clients, losing money, working double the hours, but things like this just make me smile knowing someone wants to recognize all of our hard work and offer us a contest, so thank you" - Holly
"This was a nice way for me to take a trip down memory lane looking at past photos, so thanks for the welcome distraction" - Kim
"What a fabulous contest. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to go through my vacation photos and reminisce of the many wonderful vacations that I have taken. So important during these unprecedented times" - Dawn
"This was fun going back and looking at the great adventures I have" - Randy
"Thanks for making me dig into my pictures… It feels good" - Emmanuelle
And now to our first five Winners!

Prize: A stay at AMResorts
Judge Orelbys Vigoa, BDM Quebec & Eastern Canada:
“I grew up on the beach and can actually feel the emotions and the state of mind that this couple, as well as the couple in the background, are feeling. I also see happiness, commitment, love and admiration in this picture; all traits that I share with the travel agent community.”
This photo was taken at Secrets Maroma Beach. One of my favourite AM Resort locations…that’s why we chose to get married there…
