We are on the lookout for Britain’s most breathtaking views! Partnering with Amateur Photographer, we are giving UK holidaymakers the chance to share their best photos of Britain and win one of five fantastic UK breaks, as well as a GoPro Bundle. This past year has required us to enjoy our holidays at home, and we are excited to give people the chance to capture this time to celebrate some of the amazing landscapes the UK has to offer!
Whether your fancy yourself a budding amateur photographer or simply love to take photos on your smartphone, this is the competition for you.
You can enter via the form below by sharing photos of your favourite view this summer in one or more of the following categories:
City Break Sights
Capturing the Coast
The photos will be presented to a panel of judges, who will pick their five favourite images, one from each category. Terms and conditions apply.
First and foremost, the judges will be looking for captivating images that perfectly portray the beauty of Britain. Beyond that, they will be casting a keen eye over images where the entrant has clearly made the most of their surroundings and the stunning scenery on offer - whether that be a perfectly-timed picture during golden hour on the coast, seeing the beauty in British weather with moody skies in the country, or finding an alternative view of a hidden gem during a wild walk.
They will especially be looking out for photos that:
Demonstrate excellent technical skill and creative vision
Are sharp, correctly exposed and well composed
Display great atmosphere or demonstrate originality – i.e. by standing out from other competent recorded shots of the same place or scene
Show intriguing choices in terms of light, view point, and subject matter
The competition opens on 27th July and runs across the summer before closing on September 5th, with winners to be announced at the end of September.
If your photo is one of the five selected by our panel, you will win a cottages.com holiday up to the value of £2,500, and a GoPro bundle.
The judging panel will include:
Nigel Atherton - Group Editor at Amateur Photographer,
Simon Calder - renowned travel journalist, broadcaster and commentator, and
Paul Evans - Vice President of Portfolio at Awaze, the parent company of cottages.com.
We are very excited to see your images of Britain! Enter via the form below:
