Discover Hidden Gems Competition

We would like to invite you to share the hidden gems you have discovered across the globe - through your lens. Submit them by 16th Dec and the winner would get £90. Your “hidden gems” could be anything from a quiet park tucked away from the hustle of the city, to a little-known shop filled with treasures, to a boutique cafe around the corner.

How do we select the winner?

  • From Monday 26th of Nov, we will start posting images selected from existing submissions (1 image from each submission)

  • All qualifying posts would have been published on our Instagram by Dec 20th.

  • The post with the most ‘likes’ by Sat Dec 22nd 10am GMT will be the winner, and it will be announced on our Instagram account at around 12 noon.

  • The prize will be £90 for the winner, and will be paid via Paypal.
