Island Life Photography Competition

Have your say

The Stornoway Gazette is giving you, our readers, the chance to have your photographs included in our popular annual summer magazine Island Life. If successful, photographers, budding or serious, will have their pictures which capture Island life, adorn the magazine with a full credit.

The ten best images - chosen by the Editor, Melinda Gillen - will be included in the magazine, with the overall winning image used on the cover page. Last year’s winning image pictured on the cover was a stunning shot of Hebridean machair flowers taken in Berneray, North Uist by Katie Barrett of Inverurie.

Images could be of a scene featuring one of the Western Isles most recognisable monuments, some of our breath-taking scenery, or it could be anything which inspires you and is recognisable as life in the Western Isles.

Please include a caption with your images to explain where the image was taken and what inspired you to capture the scene. The closing date for entries is March 21st.

You don’t need to be an Island resident to take part. Entries should be sent via email, should be 1MB or upwards in size. No more than two entries may be submitted per person.

Send your entries to: mark your entry ‘Island Life Competition’. Please include your daytime contact details with your entry.
