November 26, 2013 Photo Gallery No Comments Email Email

Mastery of words has enabled journalist Jane Nicholls to win two return Business Class China Southern airfares to London via Guangzhou as part of the airline’s inaugural sponsorship of this year’s Melbourne Festival.

Melbourne Festival 2014 Prizewinner Jane Nicholls with daughters Grace and RosieJane, who works for a Sydney-based features and data website, crafted the winning 25-word description of what a visitor would expect from a trip to the British capital.

As part of the prize she and writer husband Bernard Lagan get to stay at luxury Sofitel Hotels in Guangzhou and London, compliments of Accor Hotels.

Sydney-based Jane said the whole family, including daughters Grace, 11, and Rosie, 9, were avid festival goers and travelled far and wide for cultural top-ups, adding:

“What an amazing prize! We’re going to take Grace and Rosie and explore the culture – and food – of Guangzhou on our way to London.

“Guangzhou will be the perfect way to begin the Chinese part of our adventure and then it’s London – we can’t wait to show the kids the sights and history, and I know we’ll see a show or two, as well!”

Valued at more than $14,000, the prize was available to people who purchased a ticket to the 2013 Melbourne Festival from October 11-27.  China Southern flies to more than 200 destinations around the world from its Guangzhou base and Accor Hotels operates 4000 properties including the luxury Sofitel Sunrich Guangzhou and Sofitel London St James.
