The destination management company for Visit Isles of Scilly, the Islands’ Partnership, today launches its photography competition for 2016.

It follows successful photography competitions in 2014 and 2015 which together attracted more than 1,500 entries.

The 2016 competition is open to all photographers living on, working on, or visiting the islands between April 1 and September 30, who are keen to capture the essence of Scilly on camera and showcase their talents in Visit Isles of Scilly’s marketing materials.

The outright winner will win a three-night break for two on a Bed & Breakfast basis plus an evening’s dinner for two at Tregarthen’s Hotel on St Mary’s, together with two return tickets on the Scillonian III passenger ferry, courtesy of Isles of Scilly Travel.

The Islands Partnership’s executive director, David Jackson, said: “Our annual photography competition has become a welcome addition to our seasonal calendar and this year, we have extended the period for entries by an extra month, in response to requests from visitors in previous years.”
