Submit a photograph from ‘A Day By The Sea’ to be in with the chance of winning one of our fabulous prizes!

Orkney Harbours’ annual photography competition is back for the third year in a row, and this year, we’re asking anyone who lives in Orkney to enter their best photographs from ‘A Day By The Sea’ within the following three categories:

  • Wildlife and Nature
  • Boats and Ships
  • Coastal Life

We’re also delighted to be opening up the competition to our peedie youngsters again. In the under-18s category, parents or guardians of budding young photographers can submit entries on their behalf.

A Day By The Sea

Of course, every day is a day by the sea for Orcadians, but we want to encourage everyone of all ages and abilities to spend time along our coastline and get snapping!

Whether you’re capturing a flock of Oystercatchers, one of our ferries coming into the harbour or someone walking their dog along the beach, we welcome any coastal-themed photographs to be entered into the competition to be in with the chance of winning some great prizes.

Great Prizes Up For Grabs

Each category winner will receive a £100 Kirkwall BID Voucher.

The winner of our under-18s category will win a Paper Shoot Camera, and two runner-ups will receive a 3-month cinema membership at the Pickaquoy Centre.

Entry Requirements

Entries are open to anyone based in Orkney - of any age, of any photographic ability and using any digital camera (including your phone). Your photograph must have been captured within the last 12 months and can be landscape, portrait or square.

For judging purposes, we ask all photographs submitted to be as high-resolution as possible.

Enjoy A Safe Day By The Sea

Orkney’s diverse coastline is one of the many reasons why we love it, but please remember to stay on the designated footpaths and take extra care when near the edge of cliffs, on piers or when near water.
