Photographers invited to get snapping as East Yorkshire competition returns

Photographers from around the region are invited to submit their best photos as bus company East Yorkshire launches its popular photographic competition.

After a lockdown-induced hiatus during 2020, entries are now open for the free-to-enter annual competition, which is looking for the best East Yorkshire bus themed pictures.

Twelve winners get their photographs featured in East Yorkshire’s 2022 calendar, with the overall winner also receiving £100 of photography equipment.

All entries must have an East Yorkshire buses theme, whether that’s featuring the company’s buses, coaches, vintage vehicles, staff or buildings.

2019’s winning entry, by amateur photographer Gary Trotter, was a striking image of a Beachcomber open top bus in front of the big wheel in Scarborough, with other imaginative finalists also depicting buses in the countryside, around the city, at the seaside, and even in model form.

Gary Trotter said: “I had a day trip to Scarborough, and I saw the Beachcomber open top bus slowly approaching the big wheel and thought it would make an interesting back drop.  Luckily there was a gap in the traffic and I managed to take the photo I entered into the competition.  The other shortlisted photographs were excellent, so I’m absolutely delighted to have had my photograph judged the overall winner.”

Ben Gilligan, East Yorkshire’s Area Director and one of the judges of the competition, said that they expected a bumper crop of entries this year.

“During lockdown people have had more time to devote to hobbies that they can do from home such as photography, so we’re expecting a very high standard to be set this year,” he said.

“There are so many talented photographers in Yorkshire, and we love seeing their inventive and creative photographs.  We can’t wait to see what innovative ideas they come up with this year, which we’re sure will showcase the beautiful scenery of this part of the world.”
