The worldwide search to find Cover-More’s Ultimate Traveller is over, with West Australian traveller Stephen Parry taking out the top prize for his video ‘You’re Only Young Once’.

Parry, 24, from Ocean Reef in Western Australia, is the winner of Cover-More’s Ultimate Traveller competition claiming the $10,000 travel adventure, a GoPro Hero4 camera and selfie pole.

The competition was launched in May to celebrate Cover-More’s YouTube channel hitting two million views and over 1000 subscribers.

A total of 160 entries were received from across the globe with lovers of travel from Mexico, Austria, Australia, Kosovo, UK, Canada, Philippines, USA, Dubai, China, Italy, Bulgaria, New Zealand, Germany, Pakistan, and Brazil all sharing their ultimate adventures.

Each entry was a short video showing some kind of adventure as a ‘Selfie Traveller’, which can still be watched here. Entries ranged from simple camera work to slick editing, some were funny, some were serious, but all were inspiring and showed a keen sense of fun and a true passion for adventure.

Parry and his fiancée Jess Valentine share a passion for travelling, photography and film making. The pair have been on an adventure around the world together since 2014 and have created their own travel blog Flying The Nest.

“Some of the best memories I’ve created have been from travelling the world with Jess. And I love to share with others everything I have seen, learnt and accomplished through film and photography. I hope to inspire young travellers to go out there and see the world. Your outtake on life completely changes and there’s so much to learn and experience that your own backyard can’t give you,” Parry said of his love of adventure.

Cover-More also congratulates these runners up, who each receive a GoPro Hero4 camera for their awesome entries.
