If you’re a fan of the selfie then posing for one at a whole host of Peterborough attractions this summer could win you some great prizes.
The competition is being run by Peterborough City Council’s Visitor Information Centre on Bridge Street with support from visitor attractions across the city and ESP Magazine.
The competition has just been launched at Peterborough Greyhound Stadium and gets under way on Monday July 24 running for six weeks, ending on Sunday September 3.
Each week every visitor attraction supporting the competition will post a special location on their individual Facebook page where people are invited to take a selfie.
In addition, people can take a selfie with ESP, Travel World and The Fens magazines that are all available to collect from the Visitor Information Centre on Bridge Street.
To enter the competition people will then need to post the selfie on the Facebook page of the attraction or magazine with the hashtag #PboroSummerSelfie and check themselves in.
Details of each visitor attraction are available at www.visitpeterborough.com. People are encouraged to like the Facebook page of each venue so that they can keep up to date on the weekly selfie locations.
People only need to post one selfie to enter the competition, but are invited to submit further entries for as many different venues as they would like. Each selfie is one competition entry.
Each week a winner will be chosen at random. There will be prizes each week for the best selfie, including free entry to attractions, hotel stays, gift vouchers and signed Peterborough United merchandise.
Details of each week’s prize and winner will be posted at www.visitpeterborough.com and on the Visit Peterborough Facebook page.
At the end of the six weeks entries will be judged by the Mayor of Peterborough, councillor John Fox and Miss Peterborough, Laura Bailey who will select an overall winner.
They will receive the Ultimate Peterborough Package which will contain a number of prizes.
Councillor Steve Allen, cabinet advisor to the leader, said: “We have so many great attractions across Peterborough that are really popular with residents and visitors, especially in the summer months.
“We also know that there are lots more people who would enjoy them and this competition is about making sure people know about the many great things there are to do in Peterborough.”
