OAKS HOTELS have launched a contest where simply being happy could win you or your family four holidays.

The hotel chain is looking for ‘The Happiest Person’, with Dr Tim Sharp, psychologist and founder of The Happiness Institute, judging entries and announcing the winner on March 20 – the International Day of Happiness.

“The Happy Folks Choose Oaks brand platform centres around the philosophy that simple things such as weekend escapes, getting away with family and friends and making time to connect are central to happy stays for its guests,” said Melissa Rodrigues, Minor Hotels’ Group Director of Brand and Marketing.

“The company is looking for a person who epitomises those simple, positive, glass-half-full values in their everyday lives.”

To enter, post a photo or video on your Instagram profile, tag @oaks_hotels #happyfolkschooseoaks and explain in 25 words or less in your caption why you or someone you know is the happiest person, couple or family to win.

The prize is four, three-night stays in a one- or two-bedroom apartment at any Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites location in Australia and New Zealand. Entries close on January 22.
