The Campaign #TellSomeoneYouLoveThem2021
WE HAVE A WINNER!
MELODY HAS CHOSEN…
The brief simple, creative and fun. So the winners were judged on just this. There were some gorgeous entries and it was difficult to choose, but finally it was these two objectives that were the decider.
First and foremost, this photo of @angiecrammer Angela and her boyfriend is fun. I laughed when I looked at the happiness in their faces, scrunched up in the harsh snowy, cold, windy weather up a mountain. Evan had taken Angela for birthday sundowners in a snowstorm and actually took a photo to record their happy moment, which is now frozen in history. They deserve a warm bed and cosy room and some champagne for the next sundowners.
Runner Up – 2nd Place
Doy clearly put some effort into this. It was certainly one of the most creative shots in the competition using artistic ingredients to portray her love for Italy and delicious Italian food. Doy will receive a paraglide flight for two.
Runner Up – 3rd place
Cocker Noodle Noo is so very cute! This image is both creative and fun and this pup definitely deserves to share the runners up chocolates with their owner.

What is the campaign about?
It is simple, it’s about telling someone you love them, capturing the experience & sharing the love, and we’ll also throw in a fabulous competition prize – a night in a 4*hotel & a luxuriously alpine champagne and paraglide experience!
What are we asking, and who are we asking?
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, now is when people think about telling someone special they love them. We are asking anyone and everyone, not just couples, from all over the world to tell at least one person they love and appreciate them. *It doesn’t have to be in the romantic sense, it could be to a very good friend, close family member, a pet or even someone you work with.
What we want people to experience?
Everyone deserves to hear the three short words, ‘I Love you’. Telling someone you love them only takes a second but the joy and pleasure it brings is priceless and can last forever – we want everyone to experience this feeling. It doesn’t need to be said face-to-face nor in a romantic sense either – it is the ultimate Socially Distant Experience for all.
Why the campaign?
The last 12 months has been hard for everyone, being away from loved ones, losing someone close, not just from Covid, but here in the Alps from avalanches too – this campaign is something positive. You shouldn’t just wait to say I Love You on Valentine’s Day, you should say it whenever you think it as you never know when it might be too late. We want everyone, not just couples, to tell at least one person they love and appreciate them.

The rise of the Socially Distant Experience
We define a Socially Distant Experience as a special and intimate moment shared between two or more people, such as a close friend, a family member, a husband or wife, it could even be a pet or someone you work with – someone who is important to you, who makes you smile, someone who makes getting up in the morning worthwhile.
Long before Covid and Social Distancing was a thing, we were organising luxuriously alpine socially distant experiences and while Covid regulations will (hopefully) become a thing of the past, intimate, socially distant experiences are here to stay.
While Covid coined the term ‘social distancing’, it doesn’t have to define its meaning for the future.
Luxuriously alpine socially distant experiences
Before Covid-19 and social distancing, we had started to notice a shift away from people wanting big weddings or large anniversary and birthday parties, and our clients were moving towards wanting intimate experiences they could share with loved ones, so we adapted our experiences to reflect this.
Weddings for a couple plus two witnesses, anniversaries and birthdays shared with best pals instead of hundreds of friends – these are the experiences that we now call ‘socially distant experiences’.
Once Covid restrictions die down, while some may go back to crowded nightclubs and large parties, socially distant experiences will remain.
Small, intimate experiences in fresh alpine air away from the masses; flying to remote parts of the mountain; ice bars with epic views of snow-capped peaks and sun-kissed valleys; proposing on a glacier with champagne and roses; romantic picnics in the snow – these are just some of the things that we organise for clients.
Our ‘socially distant experiences’ in the Alps are romantic, exciting, luxurious and exclusive, we love organising them and we love it even more when people tell each other they love them!
