To celebrate World Photography Day, we’re holding our very own photography competition during Gretna Fest, and invite anyone, any age to enter! We have 2 x £150 Gretna Gateway vouchers up for grabs for the two lucky winners!

The Brief

Our theme is ‘Beautiful Scotland‘ and is inspired by the beauty of our surroundings. Whether that’s the rolling hills, the leafy forests, the rugged landscapes, the roaming wildlife, the stylish streets or the historic landmarks, we would love you to photograph what ‘Beautiful Scotland’ means to you. We encourage you to be as creative and as abstract as you like, and interpret the brief in your own way. We do have a few rules to stick to which you can find below.
Time to dust off those lenses, get the camera phones at the ready and snap your masterpiece!


The Rules

  • The competition will be split in to two categories; Under 18s and Over 18s
  • One entry per person
  • High resolution images where possible
  • No photo filters
  • Please send an accompanying paragraph (no more than 100 words) with your entry to tell us the inspiration behind your photo and what Beautiful Scotland means to you
The Prize
We have 2 x £150 Gretna Gateway gift vouchers to give away. One will be awarded to a winner from the under 18s category and one to the over 18s category.
The winning photos will also be displayed in Gretna Gateway Outlet Village, both on digital screens and printed on to one of our large poster sites, as well as on our website and social media channels.

All entries will be displayed in our online gallery and in a Facebook album, so if you didn’t win, you’ll still be able to show off your work to the world!
