Winners of #LiftUpSomebody competition revealed

Winners of September’s International Balloon Month #LiftUpSomebody photo contest have been announced by competition organiser The Balloon Council.

Each autumn, the team at The Balloon Council celebrate International Balloon Month by asking balloon lovers to post their best photos on social media to show how they used balloons to ‘lift up’ somebody as part of the #LiftUpSomebody campaign.

The Balloon Council, which sponsors the photo contest and promotes the campaign, announced the winners during the FLOAT 2019 Convention, which took place from 27 – 31 January in  St. Louis, Missouri.

“TBC would like to congratulate all of the winners. The submissions came from retailers, party planners, distributors and manufacturers both her in the US and abroad,” said executive director Lorna O’Hara. “It is great to have a vehicle like International Balloon Month to give everyone a chance to help spread the word about Smart Balloon Practices and to share the joy and positive power of balloons.”
