International House Bristol, which has two language schools in the city, is sponsoring the prize for this year's 1700-1800 time slot.  

Sunset is at 18.51pm on competition night, so the light in this hour should be lovely, presuming we get some sunshine that is!

The Bristol Harbour Hotel & Spa, a 2017 Bronze sponsor, has donated a fabulous prize of two nights at their new luxury hotel in the heart of Bristol's Old City for the competition's overall winner.


Wriggle has sponsored the 'just getting peckish' hour of 1800-1900, with food and drink related prizes.

Wriggle's mission is to help you discover the best local food & drink establishments in Bristol, whilst also offering exclusive savings. Since launching in 2014, they've connected tens of thousands of people with hundreds of the best local restaurants, bars, pubs, cafes and more in Bristol, Brighton and Cardiff.


Bristol’s own gas and electricity company is looking for photos that capture Bristol’s positive energy, taken during the magic hour, between 18.00 and 19.00.

Bristol Energy offers people affordable rates on their energy bills and will reinvest its profits back into Bristol communities, so that your energy can make a positive difference in your city.  

Managing Director of Bristol Energy, Peter Haigh said: “Bristol has a real community spirit. Whether you’re in Easton, Henleaze, Lawrence Hill or Bedminster, people look out for each other. They support their neighbours. And they’re proud of their community. That’s the kind of positive energy I’m hoping we can capture this year. I can’t wait to see the photos!”




Manfrotto is offering several prizes, including a fantastic smartphone tripod as an hourly prize.  Check out their website as they currently have a 60% off sale on!
