The winners

We will once again be selecting monthly winners and an overall winner. Plus, we will, of course, be showcasing all winning images in our 2020 Best of Suffolk calendar.

  • Monthly winners will be sent a bottle of Champagne and a voucher totalling £25 off their next Best of Suffolk holiday. There can only be one monthly winner, meaning we’ll be collating all the photos together.
  • The overall winner will receive an Adnams Gin Making Experience for two and a voucher totalling £50 off their next Best of Suffolk holiday.

There are of course some terms and conditions which can be seen below, please ensure you familiarise yourself with these.

Our judging panel had a hard time choosing our 2018 winners, and they can’t wait to see what photos they will be judging this year. So, don’t forget to take your camera out with you when exploring Suffolk. Happy snapping!
