Capture the beauty of Chichester District for English Tourism Week


Budding photographers could see their snaps published by entering a competition to celebrate tourism in Chichester District.

Organised by the Chichester Tourist Information Centre, the contest aims to showcase the best pictures of the city as captured by locals. The winning photos will be printed in a calendar, with each winner receiving a copy.

Photos can be taken on any type of camera and entered into one of three categories: colour, monochrome and under-18. Photographs should be uploaded to the Chichester Tourist Information Centre Facebook page, or emailed to by Sunday, 25 March.

All entries will be posted to a special album on the Chichester Tourist Information's Facebook page, where a public vote will decide the four winners from each category.

Councillor Eileen Lintill, Cabinet Member for Community Services at Chichester District Council, says: "The aim of the competition is to encourage locals to share their favourite spots around Chichester District. We live in such a beautiful district, with so much to offer. The photographs could be anything from popular tourist spots, to the stunning scenery.

"By offering an Under 18 category, we hope to inspire younger photographers to get out and about and capture their favourite view of Chichester District."

English Tourism Week is an annual celebration of English Tourism. Taking place from 17 - 25 March this year, Chichester Tourist Information Centre will be hosting a series of events to highlight the value and quality of tourism in Chichester District. 

Chichester Tourist Information Centre is run by Chichester District Council's Novium Museum, and can be found inside the museum building in Tower Street, Chichester.
