Experience Nottinghamshire is inviting amateur photographers to take part in a competition, to showcase the county of Nottinghamshire and everything that makes it great.

The annual competition, launched first in 2011, aims to uncover beautiful photos of the county’s landscapes and attractions. This year, photographers need to enter a photo inspired by one of four themes;

  • Cultural and Sporting Inspiration – Celebrating Nottinghamshire’s events, culture and sporting venues.
  • Legends – from Robin Hood to literary legends and modern day heroes.
  • The Great Outdoors – Nottinghamshire’s outdoor experiences and spaces, countryside and landscapes.
  • Local Life – Local food, produce, markets and traditions such as industrial heritage, lace and farming days out.

The competition will bring together a beautiful array of different aspects of Nottingham, and is open to anybody with a passion for photography and the county.

Thirty finalists will be chosen, and their images uploaded to the Experience Nottinghamshire facebook page, which will then be passed to a public vote and a panel of tourism judges to decide the four winning photos, one for each of the themes.

The overall winning photographer will receive a £200 cash prize and their photograph featured on the Experience Nottinghamshire’s marketing material, promoting the county nationally. The themed winners will also receive a prize for their outstanding efforts.

All finalist photos will be featured in the visitor guide and the website to encourage tourism to the county.

The competition is open for entries from today through to midnight on 16th November 2012. Please note – only one entry should be sent per email and should be no bigger than 5MB. Entries should be emailed to
