We are inviting our local residents to become regional ambassadors and post a photo on Facebook or Instagram of their favourite place in the Pyrenees where they would like to spend time with family and friends using #seeyouinthepyrenees.

The campaign will run for 5 weeks over Easter and School holidays giving our locals the chance to show off their passion for the region they call home to their family and friends.

At the end of the 5 weeks, photo’s will be short listed by a panel of experts and the top 10 photo’s will be open to a public vote on the Visit Pyrenees Facebook Page.

The winner will receive a two night stay at Faraday on Avoca or Mount Cole Cottage for up to 6 people valued at $800 which will offer them the opportunity to invite a group of friends or family to visit.
