About the contest
Millennium Hotels and Resorts is a hotel company that spans worldwide, with a range of luxury properties across Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and North America. This includes over 100 unique hotels, each one tailored to its specific location. Operating on a philosophy of ‘more than meets the eye’, we like to surprise our guests with a full service approach, priding ourselves on over-and-above hospitality – wherever we are in the world.
In this photography competition, we aim to celebrate our passion for how diverse and beautiful Britain is. With 21 hotels across the UK, we’re passionate about constantly discovering new and interesting sides of this vibrant country, which is why we want to give photographers a chance to showcase their beautiful Britain. We’re keen to both nurture photography talent a
The point of this competition is to see the UK through the camera lens and to discover the diverse range of factors that make this country beautiful in the eyes of its beholders. From the windswept countryside to gothic architecture, unspoiled nature to people at work, we want to explore what makes Britain a place of beauty, and how this concept varies from person to person. And it doesn’t have to stop there. Whether it’s an array of penny sweets or a vision of Newcastle nightlife, a vast and hilly landscape or a gaggle of teenagers boarding a flight to Malia, we don’t want to set any limits to what entrants capture with their cameras.
Our only requirement is that you use your photography skills to demonstrate beauty in relation to the UK.
You’ll need to submit up to three photographs (you can submit just one or two if you’d prefer) via our online application form.
What organizers are looking for
The judges will be looking for photographs that meet the brief accurately. This means that, rather than just portraying ‘what makes Britain Britain’ or something that is beautiful, entries should marry these two concepts together.
And, of course, you’ll also be judged on your photography skills as a whole.
You’ll be able to enter your photos up until midnight on Monday 3rd October 2016, when the competition closes. Entries will be judged by a local photographer from the region the photo was taken in. A finalist will be chosen from each region, who’ll then attend a gala ceremony at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel in London and be in with a chance of winning the competition. A runner-up from each region will also be chosen.
All UK competition entrants will be in with a chance of winning £5000 worth of camera equipment, including a top of the range high resolution OR full frame DSLR and a smorgasbord of accessories such as lenses, tripods and filters. Finalists’ work will also be printed and displayed at the gala in London, as well as the work of a few carefully selected highly commended others.
