Every year, Champagne Castle Hotel hosts a Photo Competition open to everyone over the age of 18. First prize is a two night stay at Champagne Castle Hotel for two people.

The competition requires that all entrants submit an original photo that includes Champagne Castle (the mountain) an captures a sense of place.

The Hotel puts a judging panel of 3 people together, who select a winning photo.

This Year’s Winners

This year we had 123 entrants. For those who took their pics during December / January, the weather wasn’t all that friendly. We’ve had one of our wettest rain seasons, and the clouds often dominated the landscape, hiding Champagne Castle and Cathkin Peak.

In spite of this, we had some of the most incredible photos entered, which made the task for the judging panel all the more difficult.

The quality of entries was so good, that in the end, it was decided that we would extend the First Prize to two deserving entrants.

Well done to Pieter Claassens and Chad Morillion for their absolutely stunning photos, that perfectly capture the Sense of Place our guests experience at Champagne Castle Hotel.

During the course of the year we’ll be posting other entries from this year’s competition.
