Countdown to Spring: Competition

East of England Environment Agency

Competition for Banner Photograph on their Twitter Account

After months of rain and snow, the Environment Agency is counting down the days until spring with a photography competition open to everyone in the east of England. Environmental enthusiasts have been urged to get their thinking caps on and their lens caps off to capture an image that reflects the upcoming season.

To celebrate the Spring Equinox on Wednesday, March 20, one photograph submitted for the contest will be selected to serve as the banner photograph on their regional Twitter account (@EnvAgencyAnglia) during the season.

The only rules for entry are that the image must be a landscape photograph and it must have been taken in the east of England (from North Lincolnshire to Essex, and as far west as Northampton).

Almost 3,000 people follow the Twitter account @EnvAgencyAnglia, so the winning entry will get a lot of exposure when it serves as our account’s banner image.

The photograph can be of anything from blooming flowers to sun-kissed rivers, so get creative and think of what you think represents the spring in the east of England.

Anybody who wants to enter can submit their photographs by sending them with the hashtag #springcountdown on Twitter or email them to
