Capture the Essence of Orkney


The Orcadian has joined forces with three top Orkney photographers; energy efficiency and window business Firefly Energi, The Foveran, NorthLink Ferries and The Merkister Hotel to launch a brand new photography competition for people of all ages and abilities.

We are looking for images that capture the very Essence of Orkney in the winter, bringing a fresh perspective to island life. We want to see entries that move away from the iconic imagery of Orkney, offering a new narrative.

The competition, supported by VisitScotland, and other local businesses are providing some great prizes. There are three winning categories: Over-16; Under-16 and The People’s Choice Award.

This online viewing gallery gives you the chance to check out the competition, vote for your favourite pictures, and share your
top images to gather support.
