Scillonian

Photo & Video Competition

Capture the magic of Scilly


To celebrate our 100th anniversary, we are offering 100 photographers and videographers the chance to visit the Isles of Scilly for free in 2020 to take part in our anniversary competition.

2020 marks our centenary and to celebrate we are running a creative competition for photographers and videographers. We would love to see you showcase Scilly, to help us show off this special destination to the world. It would also be great to see if these photos and videos can also convey how important the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group is to the islands.

All you have to do to qualify for a free return ticket on the Scillonian during the 2020 season is to register your place in the competition, then book your travel with at least one full paying adult.

The winning entry will be chosen by the Steamship Group board once the competition closes and winner will receive a £500 cash prize.
