Budding photographers in the frame

Archived press release

Date Published: 13/07/11



Local photographers are being invited to take part in an exciting competition to help promote Buckinghamshire as a tourist destination and to encourage new visitors to the area.

The Visit Buckinghamshire Partnership is running a photography competition to find a new image for the cover of Buckinghamshire’s visitor guide 2012.

It welcomes submissions of landscape shots, images of colourful local events, people enjoying a family day out, and any images that capture the essence and character of the county.

The competition is open to anyone over the age of 16. Only digital entries can be accepted and the images must be in colour.

The winning photo will be printed on 120,000 visitor guides and distributed all over the UK. The successful photographer will also be given an A2 print of their photograph provided by Snappy Snaps and a voucher towards a photography course supplied by PhotoExperiences.

Lauren Pearce, Chair of Visit Buckinghamshire, said: “The visitor guide acts as a one-stop shop for visitors to the county. It provides information on attractions, accredited accommodation, events, dining out, night life and family fun activities.

“It helps to bring in thousands of visitors each year and is a handy and essential guide for people planning their holiday. It is therefore essential that we ensure the guide showcases the best of the county and we are looking forward to receiving entries.”

The competition opens from Monday 1 August and the closing date for all entries is Friday 30 September.
