Entries are now being accepted for the annual Isle of Man Department of Tourism and Leisure Photo Competition, sponsored by Nationwide International Ltd.
Photographers have just a couple of weeks to enter up to 18 entries in nine categories. All photos must have been taken on the Island within the past 12 months.
The Department of Tourism and Leisure hopes winning entries will help promote the Isle of Man in the future. There’s more than £3,000 available in prize money for the best images, and the closing date for receipt of entries is midday on Friday, August 28th 2009.
Entries must be high quality digital images, and should have been taken between August 2008 and July 2009.
Entries should be very high quality digital images only. The Department regrets that it cannot accept prints. All entries must be received by the Department of Tourism and Leisure at St Andrews House, Finch Road, Douglas, IM1 2PX by midday for judging. An entry form and full rules are on the Department’s website – visitisleofman.com .
Photographers can enter one or two images in any or all of the nine categories, and the picture judged the best overall will scoop £500. Nine prizes of £200 will be awarded to the winners whose images, in the eyes of the judges, best represent the Isle of Man in each of the nine categories – scenic coastal, scenic landscapes, heritage, transport, wildlife, food/drink, Isle of Man events, business activity and miscellaneous.
