We're delighted to announced that the winner of our Alex Katz competition is Clive Sax. Clive's favourite holiday photo received the most votes on Facebook. Clive has won £250 MAINE New England clothing from Debenhams.

Alex Katz's holiday retreat is Maine, New England in America so we asked our Facebook fans to share their favourite holiday photo and get their friends to vote for it.

Clive said of his photo:
'I took this image last summer on Margate main sands. Capturing this boy in a state of complete absorption seems to sum up holidays for me. We give ourselves the opportunity to be outside ourselves, to loosen the grip of lifes demands and see the world and ourselves anew. Caught in a magical moment of sand, sunshine and refracted light which is in a way a nod to the beautiful light of Margate and of course there's hot donuts!'.
