ITEC Beach Ball Photo Competition 2013

LLLBB2  ITEC launches its first Beach Ball Photo Competition!





We have used ITEC Beach Balls for a couple of years now as marketing ‘gizzits’ and on a couple of occasions we have been sent  photos of these baIMG_0011lls on their travels!   This got our juices going!  What a great idea for a competition!


So to celebrate our 30th Anniversary next February, we have launched an ITEC Beach Ball pics competition which will run from now until 31st December 2013.   We haven’t decided on all the prizes and categories yet as we are really keen to see what everyone comes up with.   We’ve come up with most exotic location, most family-friendly pic, furthest travelled and best picture.   Have you any suggestions for categories?

The same with prizes.   We came up with Kindles, iPad minis, etc., but as technology is always changing there may be something more up to date on the market next February when we will be judging the winners.   What would make a good prize?

I wasn’t satisfied, though, I wanted something a bit more exciting, and a bit more inspirational, to stimulate some interest.



A couple of weeks before Easter, I was vacationing in Las Vegas (where the temperatures were in the 80’s and the sun glistens on the hotel pool, better than this constant British winter freeze we’ve been stuck with – yes, I digress, I know, but it was heaven – it may be April but it’s snowing outside here in Basildon!)  and as you walk along Las Vegas Boulevard admiring all the hotels, the lights and the ‘wildlife’, there are lots of characters to meet and have your picture taken with.   There’s Spiderman, Batman, Mickey, Minnie, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, et al, and even SpongeBob SquarePants!  Great, but just not showbizzy enough, afterall I was in Las Vegas, home of the original Show Girl!

Then on the corner by the beautiful fountains of the Bellagio I met Kelsey and Sydni, 2 lovely Las Vegas ladies who were happy to hold my beach balls!   LLLBB1

I think these are picture perfect and I hope they inspire you all to get out there and get snapping!

If you haven’t got a beach ball yet contact us and get hold of one by either calling on 01268 286929 or emailing – they come in ITEC Blue and IT Girls Pink!


Once you have your photo, you can either

– post it on our Facebook page –, or

– email it to me at

Remember, you have all summer (when it finally arrives – keep the faith!) as the competition doesn’t close until 31st December.

Good luck
