Winner's letter from America.

The Statue of Liberty was just one of the many New York attractions visited by AccountancyAge.com launch competition winner Calum Scott and his wife Agnes. Scott, an Aberdeen accountant, won the exciting prize after being randomly picked out from hundreds of entrants last October. Last week, Scott sent in the photo below showing the couple standing in front of the Big Apple’s most famous landmark with a note saying: ‘Just to prove we were there.’ It was their first visit to New York and, according to Scott, they packed as much sightseeing and shopping as they could into the weekend. They have now returned to Aberdeen where the CIMA accountant works for Andersen Consulting in the unit that carries out BP Amoco’s outsourcing work. AccountancyAge.com, now almost three months old, is planning more competitions for luxury getaways over the course of the year.
