Nominate to Appreciate Competition


Tell us who you #TuscanyNominate for a chance to win a weekend in Italy

Tuscany Now wants to help you pass on an act of kindness to a special person in your life. All you need to do is nominate them!

This October we are giving away a free weekend stay in our luxurious Limonaia villa, a beautiful 18th century cottage on the outskirts of Florence with fantastic views of the River Arno and olive groves surrounding the iconic city. Tell us who you think deserves a refreshing holiday and we could be flying you and your nominee away to an Italian experience of a lifetime.

Perhaps it’s your mum who’s always there to give advice? Your best friend who has been there for you? Or someone at work who deserves a break? Whoever you #TuscanyNominate, we want to hear why you’ve picked them and what you’d like to get up to in Tuscany if you win. Tuscany is home to some of the world’s finest fashion, richest cuisine and outstanding culture, so the hardest part might be choosing what to do!

Our judging panel will pick the winner of the competition based on the most deserving post. This could either be an amusing, emotional or touching story which really captures the reason why your nominee deserves this weekend away.  As well as the winner of the holiday, twelve runners-up will be chosen at random, and will win a bottle of fine Italian wine!

Here’s how you and your nominee can be in with a chance to win a fantastic getaway:

    1. Choose who you would like to nominate
    2. Create and publish a post about why you feel your nominee deserves a weekend away in Tuscany and what you’d like to do there
    3. Add the Twitter hashtag #TuscanyNominate in your blog post
    4. Include a link to this Tuscany Now competition post
