Will you be the 2019 lucky winner of £1000 of Amberol products?

It’s hard to believe that it’s 12 months since we announced the start of last year’s annual Amberol photo competition, but we are now officially open for entries! 

Look around you and you will see beautiful floral displays coming to life all over the UK’s villages, towns and cities, making it the perfect time to take some snaps – or even start putting a portfolio of photos together to try and secure the top prize.

“The annual photo competition is one of my favourite events of the year,” comments Amberol’s MD Patience Atkinson-Gregory. “Although we try to be ‘hands-on’ with our clients and get out and about to see as many displays in situ as we can, it’s impossible to see everything. This way we get to see some of the stunning results of all the hard work that people put into beautifying their environment.” 

Entries are welcome from anyone to individuals, Britain in Bloom groups and professional landscapers. The photos can be of public displays or from personal gardens. They just have to show one of Amberol’s self-watering planters in use. From hanging baskets and barrier baskets to tiered planters and wood effect barrels, any Amberol planter is eligible.  

How do I enter the Amberol photo competition? 

Entering is easy, Just take a photo of an Amberol planter that catches your eye – it can be anywhere - and send it to us. 

  1. Look for the black/white or green/white Amberol logo on our self-watering hanging baskets, tiered planters, barrier baskets, self-watering barrels, stone effect troughs or large floor standing containers. 
  2. Take your photo.
  3. Email it to info@amberol.co.uk or enter online here. You can enter as many times as you like before the closing date of Friday 13th September.

What are the photo competition prizes?

With generous prizes up for grabs to spend on more Amberol products, it’s really worth your while entering.

1st prize - £1000 worth of Amberol products

2nd prize - £500 worth of Amberol products

3rd prize - £250 worth of Amberol products

The 2018 photo competition winners

Attracting the highest ever number of entries, deciding the 2018 photo competition winner was a tough decision for the judges - so much so that they had four prizes last year. 

First prize went to Robin Murray of March in Bloom for his image of one of Amberol’s barrier baskets in full bloom. Second prize to Tony Kear of Usk in Bloom for a photograph of the town’s centre metre squared planters. Joint third went to Gita Rae of Sidmouth and Howard Murphy of Oldham for showcasing one of Amberol’s stone effect troughs and a barrier basket that included the backdrop of a war memorial respectively.  

The Amberol planters can be anywhere so keep your eyes peeled when out and about this summer and you could be in with a chance of winning. To see last year’s winning entries or to look for inspiration, visit our Facebook page or our community hub.

Remember, send your entries anytime between now and Friday 13th September; just email info@amberol.co.uk with your image and contact details. Good luck!
