Share #MyFavouriteLeeds to win a two night stay when it’s safe to visit again!

9th April 2020

Although this period of lockdown is tough, it won’t last forever and it’s always good to have something to look forward to. So we’re giving away a two night stay in a luxury four-star Leeds hotel for when it’s safe to travel and we’d love to know where in Leeds and the surrounding area you’re looking forward to visiting.

To enter, share a new post on your Instagram feed featuring photographs you took when you last visited your favourite place in Leeds. Do not go out to take new photographs. Tell us where is featured in the photographs and why it’s one of your favourite places. Be sure to use #MyFavouriteLeeds and to tag @VisitLeeds and @IgersLeeds in the main caption. Entry is via Instagram only and you can enter up to five times, each new post counts as a new entry and please keep to one place per post. You can share photos you have previously shared but it must be as a new post – re-tagging an old post does not count as a valid entry. You will need signed consent from any people who feature in your photos to comply with GDPR. The Instagram competition will run for one month and we’ll be sharing some of the entries on our own channels during that time.*

To judge the entries and choose a winner, we’ve enlisted the help of two of the IgersLeeds admin team; @carlmilner is a professional photographer and @sunflowerof21 is an award-winning iPhone photographer, so you’re in good hands!

Terms and Conditions apply. Good luck.
