The competition will run across the summer
The second annual Biggin Hill Airport photography competition starts this week, giving amateur snappers the chance to earn a free flying lesson and have their photograph up on the airport cafe’s wall.
Entrants have until August 26 to submit their photo, with next month’s Festival of Flight a great chance to snap some unusual aircraft and capture some wingwalkers in the act.
Robert Walters, business development director at the airport said: “People have been taking photos at Biggin Hill Airport for decades.
“It is an inspiring venue with a rich history, an aspect that we seek to celebrate each year.
“The competition is a fun way for the local community to engage with airport life.”
Mr Walters explained judges for this year’s competition will be looking for creativity and “the best portrayals of airport and village scenarios as they happen.”
While the top 10 winning entries will be on show at the airport’s coffee shop, The Lookout, the overall winner has an even better prize.
The winner will be awarded a free flying lesson at the airport, a framed print of the winning image and an official photographer’s pass for the Centenary Year Festival of Flight 2017.
Details on how to apply along with full terms and conditions are listed on the Biggin Hill Airport website: www.bigginhillairport.com.
Applicants are invited to send up to three entries to firstname.lastname@example.org, or submit by mail to Photo Competition 2016, Biggin Hill Airport, Main Road, Biggin Hill TN16 3BH by close of business on August 26 2016.
