'Sentir El Mar', the winning image by João Coutinho.
The sixth edition of the well-known Servigroup Hotels photographic competition has come to an end. With the theme of 'Summer Lights', the contest has been a great success, having received over 1,200 photos from 61 countries, including Spain, Portugal, Italy, Poland, India and the US.
The jury met in Servigroup´s Central reservations office and chose the images of the five finalists, a decision that was not easy to make due to the high standards. Finally, the three winners have been chosen by the users of the lucesdeverano.es website. New to this edition are the participants of the social network Instagram. The winning image in this category has been chosen by the jury and gets its own prize, which deserves a special mention.
