Show us the city you love and win €100! | 9flats blog – inside the world of social travel


Show us the city you love and win €100!

**Sorry, too late! This competition ended on 6 July. Our winners were New Delhi by Ma So Risch, and Inspirationsquelle’s lstanbul, who won €100 and €70 9flats vouchers. Congratulations to them, and all other entrants, who picked up €10 vouchers. We’ll be running more photos competitions very soon, so make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to know…**

There are so many great sights and little details hidden in every city, it would be impossible for one person alone to find them all.

But, thanks to new sites like Pinterest, it’s easier than ever to share your view of a city with others, and see what they love about that city too (fantastic views, charming little street cafés or the best bridge for sunset romances). Then, next time you visit that city, you’ve got more secret insider tips to visit and explore! 

If you love sharing your city tips, pinning great images on Pinterest or just want to win €100, this is for you…

Show us what the world looks like through your eyes…

To help you share your insider tips (and because we want to give you fantastic prizes) we’re holding a competition on Pinterest, in which we want you to show us the 5 best pics you can find of your favourite city!

What are the prizes?

1st place wins a €100 9flats voucher
2nd place wins a €70 9flats voucher
All entrants will win a €10 9flats voucher.

What do I have to do?

Very simple. Just:

1. Create a Pinterest board. To do this, log in to Pinterest click the ‘Add +’ button at the top of the page and give your board the title ‘[9flats competition] city name’ so we know it belongs to the competition.

2. Pin beautiful pictures: 5 of your favourite city and 1 of your favourite 9flats place there. Feel free to use the suggested sites on our own competition board to find amazing pictures to pin. You can also use the Pinterest search function (top left) or any other site you want.

3. Tag your pins. Add the tag ‘#9flats travel tips’ as a comment to your pins.

4. Send us the link by Fri 6 July, 6pm. When you’ve finished creating your competition board, send the link to us at

The winners will be the Pinterest boards that most make us want to get straight to Skyscanner and book our flights. Tip: if there’s a tie, ‘repins’, ‘likes’ and comments will help your chances of winning, so pick amazing images that other people will want to share.

(Not on Pinterest yet? Really? All you need is an invite, which we’ll send to you if you request from us at Find out what it’s all about here.)

Good luck!

We look forward to seeing your favourite city through your eyes.

And now, go! >>

Excuse me, erm, what’s Pinterest?
