Photo competition

Photo competition 2020


DiscoverNEL is searching for local photographers ahead of the launch of the brand new 2020 North East Lincolnshire visitor guide.  DiscoverNEL are asking for local photographers to submit photos that could feature on the front cover of the visitor guide.

The winning photo will take special place on the front cover and will see thousands of copies distributed locally and nationally.  This is a fantastic opportunity to have your work displayed and not only will the winning photographer take pride of place on the front cover but will also receive a £100 voucher for Comley Cameras and a 20×30 canvas print of their winning image donated by Comley Cameras.

Plus the winning photo alongside those that have submitted their work will also have their photos displayed on the DiscoverNEL website, social media and marketing material to help us show off our beautiful area.
