Jayne Boorman, a grandma whose holiday snapshot was entered into a competition by her daughter-in-law Sally Boorman, has been named Britain’s Worst Holiday Photographer 2014. The picture, which was taken on a family trip to Disney World in Florida is a blurred shot of a character called Duffy the Disney Bear, a character the family took the trip to see. Boorman, who lives in Pembury, picked up the dubious honour from money saving holiday site CheapHolidayLand. “Despite me swearing the children to secrecy, they did let slip to their grandma that we’d entered her photo and she was really pleased," her daughter-in-law said. "This is the first thing she’s won since winning the egg and spoon race at school so is delighted."

Britain’s Worst Holiday Photographer revealed

It’s the competition nobody wanted to win, but a grandma whose terrible photo was entered into a competition been named Britain’s Worst Holiday Photographer 2014.

Jayne Boorman who lives in Pembury picked up the dubious honour from money saving holiday site CheapHolidayLand.com after her daughter in law Sally Boorman entered the shot on her behalf.

The picture, which was taken on a family trip to Disney World in Florida is a blurred shot of a character called Duffy the Disney Bear, a character the family took the trip to see.

Sally’s son is called Duffy and the grandparents shelled out on the once in a lifetime trip at the end of last year just to meet the bear.

Thankfully Jayne wasn’t the only one entrusted with a camera and the family did get some great pictures to remember the special day.

Sally said: “It’s a running joke in the family that Jayne’s a terrible photographer but I wrongly thought this was an easy photo to take and surely she couldn’t mess it up. How wrong I was. Thank goodness my husband took some photos too.

“Despite me swearing the children to secrecy, they did let slip to their grandma that we’d entered her photo and she was really pleased. This is the first thing she’s won since winning the egg and spoon race at school so is delighted.

“Let’s hope she can master the camera she’s won. If not, we could be entering another one of her delights next year.”

Among the runners up were 72 year old Eddie Clamp from Selsey who took an action shot of one of his diving colleagues, but only managed to snap the fins and 24 year old Darryl Green from Southend whose dad was obscured by a leaf on a rare family photo taken on holiday in Majorca.

Steve Barnes from CheapHolidayLand.com said: “The response we had to the competition was amazing and it was hard to pick a winner. All the photos really were terrible but the one Sally entered caught our eye.

“We loved the story behind it too – the fact that they’d queued for ages in the Florida heat and humidity just to get this photo – and the mother in law messed it up.

“Let’s hope the prize will help Jayne perfect her photography skills, if not I’m sure there’ll be plenty of helpers on hand to try out the new camera.”
