Wilo's photographic competition launched

Published:  31 July, 2014

Following a successful internal competition in 2013, Wilo UK has launched a national photographic competition, 'Wilo loves Water'.

Wilo is asking for budding photographers to enter their photographs of water, and will find the best image that features water in any guise.

The competition is open to everyone outside Wilo employees and their relatives. Full details can be found at www.wiloloveswater.co.uk and entries are made by uploading photographs to the site and completing the details requested.

No smart phones cameras can be used as the winning shots will need to be reproducible at high resolution and potentially appear in an annual calendar.

"We kicked this off internally last year and were stunned by the quality of some of the ideas as well as the photographic ability we had within the company. Everything from straightforward landscape shots with water featuring in them, to complex compositions where water was the background theme. So this year we decided to make it an open competition to anyone out there willing to take part," said marketing manager Lisa Blakemore.

"We’re offering attractive prizes in the format of vouchers to be spent at Jessops stores around the country – with a first prize of £1,000 of vouchers, a second prize of £500 and a third of £250, for the best three entries – our specialist judges will be stretched to narrow the winning entries to a top three."

Entrants must be over 18 years of age and the closing date for entries is midnight on 30 September, 2014.
