Kaplan International Colleges, a market leading provider of English courses, has announced the winner of its Scottish Facebook photo competition.

Anita Kuziak, 23, from Poland beat off the challenge of over 200 entries to win the competition, which asked fans to submit their Scottish themed photos to the main Kaplan Facebook page.

Miss Kuziak's "I <3 Scotland" photo received the most votes and she has won the main prize of a free two week English Vacation Course at Kaplan's English language school in Edinburgh, which comes complete with free home stay accommodation and £500 worth of flight vouchers.

Competition entries ranged from alleged sightings of the Loch Ness monster, to rural holiday snaps, as well as people playing bagpipes and wearing kilts.

Hazel Marie Francis, Kaplan's Social Media Assistant, said: "We were really pleased with how much interest we had in this competition. We saw so many creative entries from all over the world and Anita is a truly deserved winner. It just goes to show what an appealing city Edinburgh is to study in!"

During the competition's two week time frame, the Kaplan Facebook page experienced an increase of over 11,000 fans, taking the total number of fans to over 50,000.

Anita will be studying at the college at a very exciting time as the Edinburgh school will unveil 12 extra newly-furnished classrooms with IWBs and smart tables giving a total of 20 classrooms over two buildings.

The buildings will have wheelchair access to all facilities; a common room with snack bar and water fountain; outdoor space for students to enjoy the sunshine; increased Wi-Fi connectivity; making it the biggest permanent adult EFL school in Edinburgh.
