Wash Week Photography Competition

For the Wash Week photography competition, we are looking for original ‘marine themed’ photographs from anywhere along The Wash & North Norfolk coast that captures the ‘spirit of place’ under three categories: culture, people and nature.

Entrants are welcome to enter one photograph in each category, which can be as old or a recent as you like. The winners of this competition will join members of the partnership and judges for an evening at the historic Marriot’s Quay on Friday 4 August to launch Wash Week 2017.

A winner and runner-up will be awarded under each category, and one overall winner will be chosen from the final six images by award winning wildlife photographer Chris Knights.

Inspirational views and wildlife, people doing activities that are telling the story of this maritime place and iconic buildings or cultural features may all qualify. These will then be used within various publications and online (all credited) as part of promoting the importance of the area to help inspire others to appreciate this great place.

To enter your photograph, you need to submit it to sam.lew@wnncems.co.uk by 9 July 2017 with your name, contact details and a brief photograph description.


Wash Week is coordinated by The Wash and North Norfolk Coast European Marine Site Management Scheme who work collaboratively with local communities and authorities to protect the regions rich and unique wildlife whilst ensuring that the local maritime culture is recognised as an intrinsic part of what makes this place so very special.
