The island of Islay presents many views to a photographer.The light and even the landscape itself seem to change from moment to moment. This is down to the ancient elements that have shaped this magical island since time immemorial. The shifting earth and rock of endless millennia have given it a robust quality.There’s the wind, driving salt spray far inshore, saturating the peaty soil.Inspired by its island home, Bowmore, Islay’s first single malt Whisky, is proud to sponsor the Whisky Magazine Photographic Challenge – the new annual photographic competition.If you believe you have some exceptional whisky photographs, then this is your chance to excel as well as win yourself a trip to the beautiful island of Islay!Renowned Scottish landscape photographer Colin Prior is heading up the judging panel – he believes a Bowmore 15 Years Old a great companion for taking the perfect photograph!Winners will be published in Whisky Magazine and the overall winner will receive a four night break for two at one of the Bowmore Cottages on Islay as well as an in-depth distillery tour, a bottle of one of their finest single malts and a goodie bag courtesy of Musto outdoor clothing.The 2nd place winner will receive a limited edition Bowmore Tempest bottling and some Musto outdoor gear.Three lucky runners up will receive a bottle of Bowmore 15 Years Old Darkest.If you decide to enter, allow us to wish you good luck, or as they would say on Islay ‘g’un rob h math agad’ (Scot’s Gaelic for good luck).
