Share your summer snaps – enter our photo competition and win a shopping voucher!

Engagement / News


Now the warmer weather is here, we’d love to see residents’ photos that sum up your summer.  So, share your summer snaps and you could be a winner!

It’s easy to get involved. Just send us photos of what summer means to you. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Wildlife in your garden
  • A bird on your windowsill
  • Flowers and veg
  • A summer BBQ
  • Days at the beach, building a sandcastle, toes in the sand
  • Sunrise or sunset
  • Ice lollies and ice cream
  • Cooling down – paddling pools or water pistols

Or perhaps there’s something else that says ‘summer’ to you. Whatever your idea of summer, we would love to see your photos.  If you have a ‘proper’ camera that’s great, however smartphone pics are just as welcome.

Our resident engagement panel will judge all entries and choose the top three photos.  The winners will receive a shopping voucher:

  • First prize – a £50 shopping voucher
  • Second prize – a £30 shopping voucher
  • Third prize – a £20 shopping voucher

The competition runs from 21 July to 1 September.

*Please note: We will feature the winner photos and all other entries on our website, monthly e-news, Brighter News and Facebook. We may use them for other Brighter Places updates and marketing purposes other than the summer photo competition updates.
