Photo Competitions

Young couple entering a competition


Our inaugural photo competition has been a great success with hundreds of submissions from all over the world. We’d like to thank everyone who took the time to submit their entries. The theme of “On a Journey” has been interpreted in numerous ways with a refreshing creativity. It was also great to see many people sending us photos from their mobile phones – often the best camera is simply the one you have with you. The one that captures the moment in it’s entirety.

Here are the results of our autumn 2017 competition.

A new competition will be announced soon so bookmark this page and return to it every so often. We will be running two competitions per year with each one run over an extended period.

Autumn 2017 Competition

How To Enter:

We’re looking for photos with the theme of “On A Journey”. You can consider “journey” to mean anything real or metaphorical (e.g. a journey of discovery). It’s up to you. What matters is the creative way you approach the theme.
Photos must be original and taken by the competition entrant. Rest assured that there is no need for any expensive camera equipment. The quality of images from camera phones is more than adequate.
You may enter by any one of these means:

  • using the submission form on this website
  • by publicly posting a photo on Instagram with the hashtag #OnAJourneyPhoto
  • by publicly tweeting a photo on Twitter with the hashtag #OnAJourneyPhoto
  • by visiting our Facebook page (@SolutionLoansUK) and publicly posting your photo with the hashtag #OnAJourneyPhoto [or via the Photo Contest tab on that page]
