After agonizing over the four finalists—all such great Highlights!—from our December Catch contest, we have chosen a winner. Congratulations to Julee K. for her Highlight “A Mosque Invites Me to Stay,” about the Yeni Camii mosque in Istanbul. In addition to the iPad Mini she won for being a finalist, Julee wins a spot in the May issue of AFAR magazine!

What we love about her Highlight is her beautiful, enticing photo; her choice of an off-the-tourist-track location; and the personal details that bring the experience to life. These are all the things that we look for in great Highlights. Remember that Highlights appear regularly in AFAR magazine—we’re always watching!
