Photographers can help promote the Island

There's still time for keen snappers to have their pictures considered for a Manx government sponsored competition.

The annual Isle of Man Tourism Photo contest sees photographers vying with each other in seven categories.

They are: Manx heritage and culture, coast, countryside, wildlife, transport, Isle of Man events, and Island life.

This year, entries have to be submitted to the tourism division of the Department of Economic Development.

Isle of Man Tourism says it hopes the winning entries can be used to market the Island, and is offering more than £1,000 in prize money.

Images can be submitted on a CD or a memory stick, and must be accompanied by a colour print.

One winner in each category will get £100, with each of the seven runners up receiving £50.

There is more information at visitisleofman.com and entries close on August 31.
