#ExplorePlymouth Photo Competition

What is #ExplorePlymouth?

#ExplorePlymouth is our monthly photo competition that we run on Instagram – check it out here! Our first competition will start on the 1st October. We’re really excited to get going!

We’re so proud of this City, and we want others to see it the same way that we do. This is our home. It’s where we live and where we work. And with the amount of investment in the area, it’s becoming a better and more vibrant place to live all the time. So we want to celebrate it. And what better way to get people talking than to run a photo competition!

We also want to make our Instagram page a little more exciting! Let’s face it, not many people want to follow a law firm on Instagram to read posts about contributory negligence or the GDPR rules and regulations! So we want to use our page to show everyone how proud we are of where we live. And at the same time, to show that we’re perhaps a little different to other firms in the area.

So, how does it work?

Every month, we will pick a theme. And then we’d like you to upload a photo or photos that fits in to the theme! We’d also like you to use the correct hashtag and to tag both us and the monthly sponsor (information’s below on exactly how to enter).

Get creative. Have some fun (but please always stay safe). What’s your favourite part of the City? Would it look good in a photo? Think about how you could do it slightly differently.

How to enter the photo competition

It’s really simple!

  1. Follow Nash & Co Solicitors on Instagram (@NashSolicitors). On here, we’ll tell you what that month’s theme is, and who the sponsor is that you need to tag.
  2. Share your own picture in line with the monthly theme of the competition.
  3. Tag @NashSolicitors and the monthly sponsor, and use the hashtag’s #ExplorePlymouth and whatever the theme is too. For example #PlymouthAtNight

That’s it! Make sure that it’s creative, that it’s your own image, and that your account is on public so that we can see your entry! For full terms and conditions, just take a look below. There are no restrictions on the number of times that you can enter the competition.

The image can be taken whenever, but must be posted within the month of the theme. You must tag us and the sponsor and use the hashtags within the post itself and not within the comments. Lastly, all photo’s must be located within Plymouth.

We pick a different sponsor every month and they will provide the prize for the winner.

Now, go, go, go. We can’t wait to see the entries.
