The Islands' Partnership has today launched the Isles of Scilly Photography Competition 2015, offering amateur photographers living, working and visiting the islands this summer the opportunity to win a short break for two to Scilly.

The launch of the competition follows the immensely successful Photography Competition in 2014, which attracted more than 800 entries including the eventual winning photo, “Puffin”, by Steven Burbidge.

This year’s competition is open between 1st April and 31st August. Photographers wishing to submit entries must be keen to capture the essence of Scilly and willing to have their talent showcased in Visit Isles of Scilly’s marketing materials.

The outright winner for 2015 will win a three-night break for two on a Bed & Breakfast basis at the 4* Sylina Guesthouse on St. Mary's and two return tickets courtesy of Isles of Scilly Travel on the Scillonian III passenger ferry.  All the details can be found on the Visit Isles of Scilly website.

“We are delighted to be hosting another Photography Competition this year,” says David Jackson, Executive Director, Islands’ Partnership, the destination management organisation for Visit Isles of Scilly. “The standard of entries last year was immensely high and we are grateful to have had so much choice to feature in our Visit Isles of Scilly 2015 Guide, our Visit Isles of Scilly website and various promotional materials throughout the year.  We look forward to receiving many more entries this year, inspired by the new categories. I should also like to thank Sylina Guesthouse and Isles of Scilly Travel for their kind and generous donations for the winner’s prize.”
