During the course of the competition, a further 30 lucky entrants received spot prizes of between R250 and R500 in Lifestyle Centre gift cards each.
According to Lifestyle Centre owner, Bruce Rencken, “The competition was a huge success! The entries were brilliant, showcasing all the aspects of what makes life in Ballito so special, from the beach and the promenade, to friends and family, to the bike trails in the sugar cane, to The Market and Eat Street in Lifestyle Centre! The judging process was a tough one but when you take a look at all the winning photos, they really represent what #LifeTheBallitoWay is all about for our customers.”
In a delightful twist to the story, winner Angelique Manias decided to donate her prize to charity, in another display of what it means to live #LifeTheBallitoWay.
