The Spirit of Heritage


    Classic Photography | Artistic Photography | Instagram | Video 15th August -4th November 2013


    Jersey Heritage have partnered with the Jersey Evening Post to host an annual Photography and Video Competition, which challenges amateurs and professionals alike, to capture the spirit of heritage.

    Competition opens from Thursday 15th August, with entries online from Friday 16th August.

    The Challenge

    To capture the spirit and variety of Jersey’s Heritage.

    This could be a photo of your family exploring castle walls, a morning coffee after a stay at a heritage holiday let, a picnic shared at La Hougue Bie or children singing at the Hamptonne Cider Festival. We are looking for something recognisable and memorable which reflects the life and soul of these iconic sites which have shaped the Island’s history. Show us a glimpse of those magical moments and memories.
