Island Photos Could Win Trip To Brussels

Your pictures of people at work in Scilly or snaps of the Scillonian landscape could win you a trip to Brussels in a Europe-wide photo contest.

Scilly’s European cash-funded Local Action Group has been asked to find pictures that best depict life on our islands.

The contest organisers want images showing our people, environment, young people or workers in our rural setting.

Winning pictures will be displayed at the Berlaymont building in Brussels and the photographer will be invited to the awards event there on June 27th.

Local Action Group Manager Amanda Pender says the competition offers an exciting opportunity to bring the islands to a wider European audience.

She says, “we know that the islands are an incredibly beautiful place to live, work and play, but even on a national scale, let alone a European-wide arena, the islands are in most cases virtually unheard of.”

If you want to enter, contact LAG at Porthmellon for details or email localaction@scilly.gov.uk

The closing date is Friday 18th May
