‘Eyes on Cov’ photography competition with The Wigley Group

7 October 2016

Keen amateur photographers are being invited to capture a unique angle on Coventry as part of the UK City of Culture 2021 bid.

The ‘Eyes on Cov’ competition will give ten photographers the chance to use specialist working at height equipment to capture views of the city from up high, a rare chance to experience our city from the sky which is not one for those afraid of heights!

Their ideas will be turned into reality by Coventry-based commercial property company The Wigley Group who will supply cherry pickers normally used for construction projects. Winners will ascend in a cherry picker at their chosen location, at their chosen time of day, in order to capture their unique view of Coventry.

After submitting their best photos from height, one winner will be chosen and will get to spend a day with award-winning Coventry photographer Jason Scott Tilley and have their photo featured in the Coventry City of Culture campaign.

To enter all you have to do is fill in this application form detailing your interest in photography, how you plan to use the working at height equipment and two examples of your work.

The competition was the brainchild of James Ellerington, Head of Asset Management at Coventry-based commercial property, risk and facilities management company The Wigley Group.

The closing date for applications is 4 November 2016, completed forms need to be emailed to info@coventry2021.co.uk.
