Our first photo competition

As you may well know if you receive our newsletter of are a friend of the hotel facebook page we have decided to run a photo competition. The theme we have chosen is “outdoor holiday experiences” and there is a chance of winning the attractive prize of three nights’ accommodation for two people at the hotel including breakfast and evening meals.

We are looking for beautiful, evocative and uplifting photographs associated with experiences in the outdoors. The only requirement is that you are subscribed to our quarterly newsletter or that you are a friend of the Hotel facebook and the competition closes on the 30th April.

So why have we decided to run a photo competition?

I suppose the first and obvious reason is to try and give the hotel a little more publicity and encourage people to keep in touch with what we do at the hotel either through facebook or our newsletter. Another reason is I personally enjoy photography. I am only an amateur but I am always interested in looking to see what make a “good” photo, all be it very subjective.

We have an interesting panel of judges to whom I  thank for agreeing to help, they are;
Juan Iglesias from www.photowild.es    
Lidia Fanjul from www.sense-experience.com  
Gavin Owens from www.whereisasturias.com  
John Shackleton from www.wildasturias.com
And myself; Nigel Burch from  www.posadadelvalle.com

This is a great opportunity to send your favourite outdoor photo moment and win the opportunity to photograph Asturias. Simply send your picture, (one photo per entrant) which must be at least 1Mb in size, along with a brief description, your name, address, telephone number, the date and the location of the photo to hotel@posadadelvalle.com
