June 24, 2011 - PRLog -- Basking in the glow of the Royal Wedding and proving that romance is still alive and kicking, the Tourist Board’s unique Facebook competition calls for all romantic souls to stand up and be counted. The competition will offer one lucky winner and their partner a stunning seven night holiday to the beautiful Caribbean island of Saint Lucia, staying at the luxury resort of Jade Mountain.

Running for six weeks, the competition will be hosted via a dedicated Most Romantic Brit page on Facebook - - and to enter users will be invited to post 25-300 words detailing why they deserve the title of ‘Most Romantic Brit’. Users can put themselves forward or even nominate a friend or family member – the only thing needed is a lovely romantic story and imagery of the person in question. Once the post is live, it’s every entry for itself as friends and fans of the page are called upon to ‘like’ their favourite romantic gesture. The five entrants with the most ‘Likes’ will then be shortlisted for the final and given the opportunity to go on and play for a fantastic holiday to Saint Lucia.

The final will require all five shortlisted entries to upload a video stating why they feel their romantic tale should win and provide details on why they believe Saint Lucia is the ideal romantic destination. A panel of judges will then select the overall lucky winner. The closing date for entries is 8th July 2011.

Jean-Marc Flambert, Director of Marketing UK and Europe, Saint Lucia Tourist Board says ‘At a time when Britain is sharing the happiness of the royal couple, we’re delighted to be celebrating all things romantic with the launch of this special Facebook fan page.

‘Saint Lucia has been voted the World’s Leading Honeymoon destination eight times by World Travel Awards and this viral campaign has been designed to capitalise on that accolade by showcasing Saint Lucia as the perfect place to enjoy a romantic getaway.‘

With an array of enchanting places to stay, Saint Lucia is the natural choice for a romantic getaway. As one of the most picturesque islands in the Caribbean - with its iconic Piton Mountains, stunning lush scenery and beautiful palm-fringed beaches – Saint Lucia is the perfect place to rekindle the romance.
