Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam Creative Director, Genevieve Hoey, comments: “People already try to beat each other with their epic summer shots, via social platforms. This idea goes one better, turning people’s ultimate summer shots into digital works of art. Being GIF’d by Booking.com will give people the ultimate bragging rights, and I think we’ll help settle a lot of arguments about who won Booking summer.”
