Enter the Love Cottages’ #iwasthere selfie competition and win a Panasonic TZ70/ZS50 travel camera

Have you snapped your wander along the length of Hadrian’s Wall? Did you Instagram your moment at the top of Mount Snowdon? How many selfies did you take along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path? Did you manage to hold the camera still while juggling a toddler on The Needles chairlift? Have you given in to your inner child and deigned to halt the car as you passed a village sign that made you chuckle?

Whichever UK landmark you love, we want to see it

Well, more precisely, we want to see your photo of it, even better: a photo of you at said UK landmark.

We’re offering one lucky reader the chance to win a Panasonic TZ70/ZS50 travel camera worth £229. Ask any professional photographer and they’ll say that Panasonic invented the travel camera. So you’ll be kitted out with the best of the best for your future travel snaps.

How to enter

To be in with a chance of winning this fabulous piece of photographic kit, all you have to do is send us a photo of you at your favourite British landmark to [email protected] including your Instagram handle (e.g. @lovecottages).

Preferably you’ll do a better job at finding iconic UK landmarks than we did with our Tower Bridge shot! Move over London, we want to see the best of the rest that this fabulous nation has to offer locals and visitors alike.

What happens next?

We will share the best entries on the Love Cottages’ Instagram feed, tagging you and using the hashtags #iwasthere and #landmark.

The winning photograph will play to Instagram’s strengths: striking imagery, clever use of filter. And it will showcase the most impressive of British landmarks (everyone should want to go there after seeing your snap).

We’ll share our favourite photos on the Love Cottages’ Instagram and Facebook pages throughout July and August. The winner will be selected from those we’ve highlighted.
