Pevsner Photo Competition | Your Favourite Building in Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire Photo Competition 2020

Many of you have been admiring Martine Hamilton Knight’s photographs from the new Pevsner guide to Nottinghamshire on our Twitter and Facebook pages, but we’d love to see some of the pictures that you yourselves have taken of the numerous churches, stately homes and civic buildings to be found throughout the county. Enter our competition with a personal photograph of your favourite Nottinghamshire building, along with a short caption explaining why it’s your top pick, for the chance to win a a free copy of Nottinghamshire and another Pevsner guide of your choice!

Southwell, Thurgarton Union Workhouse, by W. A. Nicholson with the Rev. J. T. Becher, 1824. Photo by Martine Hamilton Knight.

How to enter

Send a photo of your favourite building in Nottinghamshire, along with a caption explaining why you’ve selected it as your number one choice, to us at yalebooknews@yaleup.co.uk with the subject “Nottinghamshire Photo Competition”. Please include some information about the name and location of the building, especially if your image is of a particular architectural feature rather than the whole exterior.

Entry closes at 11.59pm (GMT) on Thursday 31st December 2020.

Photographs should be of a building’s exterior, rather than interior. It doesn’t need to be a photo that you’ve taken specifically for this competition, but it does need to have been taken by you, be owned by you, and not have been used for any other commercial or editorial purposes. Entries will be judged by Martine Hamilton Knight and a member of the Pevsner team.

Runner-up prize: x1 copy of Nottinghamshire
Grand prize: x1 copy of Nottinghamshire and another Pevsner guide of your choice
