LETTER OF THE DAY: Why tear up our Peace Garden?

Have your say

Leading housebuilder Miller Homes is launching a photography competition encouraging people to submit a photo they have taken which encapsulates all that is great about the area in which they live.

Highlighting the importance of location, the ‘Great locations photography competition’ will also ask entrants to provide a sentence or two giving context to their photo.

Tracey Lee, sales director, Miller Homes South, said: ‘More often than not, location is a deciding factor in people’s decisions on where they want to live. Location is so important, and for this reason we ensure we only create communities in the very best places in the South, with access to good schools, excellent local amenities and superb transport links.

‘For our great location photography competition we are asking people to consider their locations and the reasons why they love them. We want to start conversations about place and to really tap into what makes a location appealing, exploring how vital this is to how people feel about where they live.

‘We are anticipating a range of interesting entries and look forward to receiving these over the coming weeks and months. Best of luck to all entrants!’

Entries should be sent to and once received will be published on Miller Homes’ social media channels.

Deadline for entries is October 26, 2014, after which time judging will take place and winners notified.

A winner will be selected from each of the housebuilder’s six regions (Scotland, North East, North West, Yorkshire, Midlands, Southern) and then from these winners an overall national winner will be selected. Regional winners will each receive a £50 Amazon voucher plus the opportunity to have their photo framed and displayed in their nearest Miller Homes development; and on top of this the overall winner will receive a gift voucher for a one-day photography course as well as a framed copy of their photograph.

Heading the judging panel in the south is professional photographer Matt Streten.

Matt is well know for his distinctive and eye catching photos and runs Image Creative, a well-known and established studio offering a full photographic media service and said: ‘I look forward to working with Miller Homes to uncover some of the regions best amateur photographers.’
