Photography Competition – ‘Quintessentially British’

Submission period for entries now closed please see vote for your favourite.

Our Wedding Cake competition was another brilliant voting competition, the entries were of the highest standard and the thought, effort and skill that had gone in to the creations was incredible. The competition was extremely popular and the it was so close between first and second through out the contest with Marie’s Bird Cage Cake snatching the lead on the last day!

We are extremely pleased to say that our wedding cake competition received well over 12,000 pageviews which gave all the entrants a wonderful opportunity to show off their creations and in turn promote themselves and their business.

You also had the opportunity to help decide what our next voting competition would be and the most popular choice was photography. So with that in mind we are pleased to announce our next voting competition is for photographs themed ‘Quintessentially British’. We thought this would tie in really well with the Queen’s Jubilee and the London Olympics and give some cheer to the miserable weather we’ve been having!

The category is very broad and is open to your interpretation but some suggestions from us include:

  • The British Countryside/Scenery
  • English Tea Party
  • British Cuisine
  • The Weather!
  • Historical Interest

This will hopefully be another fantastic opportuntity to get your work seen and increase awareness of your business or talents.

Please note, this competition is aimed at photographers and therefore we don’t want to include photos of products.
