You may or may not have noticed that our Things To Do pages have had a little bit of a revamp. But one thing is missing… photographs!

We are looking for local Southend photographers to donate photographs to these pages. And in return for your generosity of letting us use your photograph on our website’s Southend tourism pages, we can give you a little bit of free advertising! If chosen, your photograph will show an Image Credit in the corner, linking your name to your photography website or social page. You don’t have to be a professional photographer to suggest a photograph, so long as you have an amazing photograph to suit the page!

Currently, all of those pages look a little something like this….

Things To Do Example

What We’re After

Any photographs you have that we can use for the following pages:


Please note: Dimensions of the photograph must be 1140 x 335 in pixels! So remember to photograph or crop your photograph to this size, so that it can be consistent with our Things To Do page templates.

How To Submit Your Southend Photograph

We decided to make things interesting… And to make sure that it’s fair! So instead of just sending us photos for us to decide, we thought we’d put it to the good people of Southend!

1) Send us a photo! You can email the photo (or a link to the photo) to us at, or message it privately to us via our Facebook! You will be able to submit up to four photographs a category to as many categories as you want! Oh, and they do actually have to be your photos….

2) We will stop accepting photograph submissions at the end of the month (Midnight of 31st March 2015), and compile them all for public voting.

3) We’ll publish smaller sizes of the photographs in a blog post and on our social media for people to vote on, for each of the categories above.

4) Voting will last for a week, and after that the winners of each category will have their photograph displayed on our website with a link back to their photography website or social media profile!

Easy! :D
