July 2017

Let your imagination and camera take flight for this exciting county and aviation themed competition.
Lincolnshire Life, the county’s favourite and longest established magazine, is proud to have been the media partner for The International Bomber Command Centre (IBCC), based at Canwick Hill, Lincoln since the project was launched. As the final stages of the build progress and the opening is anticipated, we are launching our 2017 Photographic Competition to find iconic images which encapsulate ‘Aviation Heritage and the Beauty of Lincolnshire’.

Our competition for 2017, in conjunction with the IBCC, invites you to get out and about around our great county with your camera and share the results with us. We are looking for thoughtful and imaginative images which highlight the beauty of Lincolnshire and its deep connection to aviation heritage.

We would like to share your images with our readers, in print and online. We shall also select the most outstanding twelve images to be included in the Hub Café at the IBCC.

The judging panel will be led by Lincolnshire Life editor Caroline Bingham and will include Nicky Barr, director of the IBCC, Bryn Redman from Redman Design and Stephen Palmer from Place Architecture.

So what are you waiting for? Grab your camera and get out there.
