Best of Warwickshire Photo Contest

Best of Coventry & Warwickshire - a year in pictures

Wright Hassall we are celebrating 170 years of doing business in Coventry & Warwickshire. To help them celebrate you can take part in their free to enter photography competition:

Over the next 10 months the photography competition challenges you to capture the best of what Coventry & Warwickshire has to offer.

Given there are over 1500 of you who have been through some form of tuition with me in the last two years it would be great to see some of you entering and having a go at sharing some of the wonderful scenes from around Coventry and Warwickshire.

 

There are 5 categories in which to enter photographs: 

  • Architecture
  • Arts & Culture 
  • Landscapes
  • Nature & Wildlife
  • Warwickshire Wildcard

Prizes

A panel of judges, which includes veteran newscaster and journalist, Jon Snow and freelance professional photographer Verity Milligan, will shortlist 10 finalists, choosing the best photo from each category in each age group:

  • under 21
  • 21 and over in each

All of the finalists will be invited to an exhibition in Leamington Spa in July 2016 where their photographs will be displayed and the winners will be announced. An overall winner from each age group will then be selected from the finalists. The winner from each age group will each receive a Canon EOS 700D Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm STM Lens.
