English Tourism Week is right around the corner, and in celebration of the annual event The Oxford Mail and Experience Oxfordshire are excited to announce the launch of their Why I Love Oxfordshire photography competition.

The premise is simple – we want to get people showing off their favourite bits of the county and encouraging other to venture far and wide in Oxfordshire.

Taking inspiration from our beautiful county, we are encouraging you all to go out and take photos of your favourite places in Oxfordshire: the places that remind you #WhyILoveOx. It could be one of the classics: the dreaming spires or the rolling Cotswold countryside; or it could be something a bit quirky which shows why you love Oxfordshire: your back garden, your favourite shop or even one of your furry friends! The competition is open to all ages, with two categories: one for 18 and under, and one for 19+.

Once you’ve entered your image, we’d encourage you to share it on social media with the hashtag #WhyILoveOx so everybody can see your spectacular photos!

The winning photos will be published in the Oxford Mail – and we have a bundle of other prizes to be won too – details coming soon!

How to enter

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is take a photo of something in Oxfordshire (it could be a sunset, a brick wall, a stunning birds eye view) and post on Instagram using the hashtags #WhyILoveOx & #Comp and tag us @experienceoxfordshire and @oxfordmail on your post!

Or, if you’re not on Insta, please send your photo(s), along with your name, age and email address to: marketing@experienceoxfordshire.org.

If you’re under 13 please make sure you have a parent or guardian’s permission to enter.

Entries are open from 00:01 on Monday the 11th of March 2019 until 23:59 on Sunday the 7th of April 2019.

Prizes

1 Family Annual Pass to Blenheim Palace

1 Family Ticket to Oxford Castle & Prison

1 Case of Hobgoblin Beer and  Tour Tickets from Wychwood Brewery

Lunch for 2 at Quod

1 Pair of Tickets to an Oxford Official Walking Tour University & City Tour

1 £50 Voucher to spend at the Oxford Visitor Information Centre (offer excludes stamps, accommodation bookings, walking tours, attraction and event tickets)

There are new prizes being announced regularly, so keep tabs on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram posts.

Terms & Conditions

In entering the competition you recognise that The Oxford Mail and Experience Oxfordshire retain the right to use the image for both print and online publication, including copies of the Oxford Mail, the Oxford Times and in Experience Oxfordshire print literature.

Prizes are final, and there is no cash alternative available. Prizes are redeemable on dates as agreed with the venues. You may be required to collect your prize.

Instagram post 18024259780185478 Radcliffe Camera is one of my favourite places in Oxford (I ALWAYS visit this place whenever I go to Oxford, even if it's just for a hospital visit😅) and it is one of the most photographed ones as it is the most iconic to Oxford, but it's crowded with lots of tourists.

Instagram post 17843563582415859 So I decided to go to Oxford (again)for a walk in the afternoon just because the weather is too gorgeous to be just stay at home 😅 I choose this place as one of my destination, as I've never been inside this college despite after having lived in Oxon for 3 years 😌

Instagram post 17927553100289387 WHAT A SIGH-T 🚲 The Bridge of Sighs... No, not the one in Venice. And no, not the one in Cambridge. This is the third; the Bridge of Sighs in Oxford. Built almost 100 years after the rival university's version, Cambridge like to say that Oxford wanted to copy them, not Venice, with this bridge as another example of the two university's rivalry. Although I'm a Cambridge loyalist through and through, I have to admit this Bridge of Sighs is also pretty lovely 😍 #WhyILoveOx
