Booking.com Is Now Turning Your Best Summer Snapshots Into Clever, Silly GIFs

If your pics are cool enough, that is

Summer may be coming to an end, but here's a fun way to keep reliving the good times—high-quality GIFs of your photos from the season, courtesy of Booking.com.

The Priceline-owned online travel agency is inviting consumers to submit pics of their summer adventures, then turning its favorites into animated GIFs. For eight days between today and Sept. 3, Booking.com will release a new batch of winners. And if the launch samples are any indication, the results will be pretty great.

Highlights so far include ice-cream thievery, cocktail snorkeling and a zany rainbow. Check them out below—the original photos are on the left, and their GIF versions on the right. 

Overall, the contest is an extension of the company's "Wing Everything" push, celebrating spontaneous vacation. Would-be participants can compete by hash-tagging a pic #WingItYeah on Twitter or Instagram, or submitting via the Booking.com Facebook page. Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam has hired four digital artists to create the GIFS: James Kerr, Cari vander Yacht, Chris Timmons and Justin Gammon

As for Booking.com's criteria for selecting which photos to GIF, the marketer says its looking for "jealousy-inducing" shots of things like "infinity pools" and "epic views." In other words, it wants to reward you for doing what you were doing on social media anyway: bragging.
