Back by popular demand! We had so many amazing Trickography entrants last year that we thought it would be just plain wrong not to repeat it. 2014's Trickographer of the Year will walk away with one amazing Sharky and George-ified family holiday, courtesy of Original Travel, as well as some totally awesome camera equipment from Samsung.

Who are Sharky and George?

Original Travel has teamed up with the much loved children's party people Sharky & George to inject some (much needed) creativity and fun into the family holiday planning process. To celebrate our partnership the competition will run throughout the summer holidays. Post your family's silly and ingenious trick pics to our Facebook page for the opportunity to win.

What is Trickography and how do I enter?

Trick photos can be anything from making a fountain look like it's coming out of your mouth to holding the sun in your hands. All you need to do is get your creative hat on, your camera ready and start snapping! Then upload your trick photo to Facebook and post it to our Original Travel Sharky & George page. The competition closes on 12th September 2014 and the winners will be announced shortly after at an exclusive event hosted by ourselves and the Yodas of the kids' party world, Sharky & George.

Introducing Samsung BlueHouse

We've also teamed up with Samsung Bluehouse for this year's competition, and all competition entrants will have the special opportunity to become members of the Samsung BlueHouse club. Samsung BlueHouse provides a unique opportunity to discover the world of Samsung, bringing together like-minded individuals and opinion formers, offering a chance to preview new and limited edition Samsung products and enjoy some incredible experiences along the way. Samsung BlueHouse have donated a very special prize for the lucky competition winner (more details below) and will be giving a photography master class at our fun-filled event.

What will I win?

Our winner will be loaded up with everything they need to hone their Trickography skills even further. They will receive a three night Sharky and George-ified family holiday with Original Travel to one of our top family destinations: Forte Village, Sardinia. (More opportunities to bury your dad in the sand!) Voted the 'World's Leading Resort' for 13 years running, the Forte Village Resort in Sardinia is perfectly geared up for families. There are fresh and salt water swimming pools and on the other side of the resort is Leisure Land, which has a go-kart track for aspiring Lewis Hamiltons, an ice-skating rink, ten-pin bowling, trampolines and a disco.

There's more...

And yes, there's more, our winner will take away a Samsung NX Mini Camera to capture all of the amazing tricks. The NX Mini is the world's smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera; complete with selfie-friendly flip screen, of course. Last year Bruno Hagan's 'shark attack' photo wowed our judges and the family jetted off to one of our favourite family hotels, The Anassa in Cyprus for five nights. Here's Bruno scoping out more Trickography opportunities at the Anassa's pool...

Feedback from our Trickographer of the Year 2013

'We were looked after like royalty and had a truly unforgettable few days. Bruno tried waterskiing and we cannot thank you enough for making it all possible.' The Hagan family
