Win a Panasonic Lumix S1
We have an amazing prize this quarter that will hopefully get you all out there taking photographs of an area in Scotland. Whether you live in an area or have had the privilege of photographing a beautiful part of Scotland, we want to see your photographs entered into our competition. We have left the theme for the competition quite open and therefore you can submit photographs of wildlife, sport, landscapes and people. Once uploaded all you need to do is get your firiends to vote for you.
Not only is the prize really cool but it helps us promote Scotland through film.
The winning photograph will also take pride of place on the front page of the Search Scotland website for 3 months and be included in the Winter 2011 E Magazine.
