“Archways offered tantalising glimpses of what lay beyond, encouraging us onwards along cobbled lanes lined by old stone houses whose sturdy wooden doors were framed by flower pots exploding with a frothy mass of flowers and foliage.”
WIN A HOLIDAY-CUM-PHOTOGRAPHIC-ASSIGNMENT and discover the varied faces of Catalonia – the sandy coves and whitewashed villages of the coast, the Modernist architecture and acclaimed cava producers in Penedès, and the ancient volcanoes and glorious beech woods which characterise the foothills of the Pyrenees – on a memorable six-night journey by car through north-east Spain* based on our fabulous Homage to Catalonia holiday.
What’s more, for the duration of the competition (April to October 2017) we’ll be giving away a £200 Inntravel voucher every month for the best Photo of the Month.
To enter the competition we’d like you to share your own favourite Slow Moment, captured in an evocative image (between 2MB and 10MB) and described in no more than 40 words. Your Slow Moment could be from a recent holiday or simply from your explorations round about where you live – it’s about capturing a special memory while taking the Slow Lane.
The Slow Lane is about getting off the beaten track, taking your time, really getting under the skin of a place to discover its true nature.
A Slow Moment is a specific discovery – the emotion it evokes and the memory it makes. Your photo could depict flora or fauna, an evocative view, local traditions, or something else that made you stop in your tracks to look.
We will regularly update our Moments Galleries throughout the competition, showing the winning and shortlisted entries for previous months, and posting a selection (not a shortlist) of entries for the current month’s competition.
The seven winners will then be entered into the ‘Grand Final’ towards the end of the year, and will go on display – along with any other entries which particularly caught our eye – at the Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton, Yorkshire, in January 2018 (watch this website for more details nearer the time).
From the monthly winners, one overall winner will win a photographic assignment on which they will embark on a six-night journey by car through Catalonia* with a companion, discovering its extraordinarily varied scenery, cultural treasures and wonderful gastronomy, all the while capturing the special moments on camera for us.
