2021 #WhyILoveSaruni Competition – Shortlisted Entries

Our 2021 #WhyILoveSaruni photo & video competition on Facebook & Instagram HAS NOW ENDED!

We have had some stunning, creative and truly original photographs and videos. Each one submitted was a perfect capture of ‘#WhyILoveSaruni’ – or at least – why YOU do!

We have a special panel of judges who will select the overall winner from the photos/videos with the highest public votes. Our judges include travel enthusiasts, professional photographers, and industry experts so we have covered every angle!

Below, for your viewing pleasure, are our favourite shortlisted finalists each month from when the competition started in July 2021. Congratulations to all those who made our shortlist.
