Photo Competition #livingcastle

16 August 2016

Throughout September and October, as part of our Living Castle season, we are inviting our visitors to take photos of their favourite views from the castle via our social media channels using the #livingcastle. Three winners will be announced at the beginning of November and will receive hampers containing bespoke St Michael's Mount products from the Courtyard Shop.

As opposed to views of the castle, the #livingcastle photography competition is about views from the castle. Imagine that you are living in the castle, take in the views around you and send in your favourites to our social media channels using #livingcastle.

Our judges, led by the Castle Steward, will be looking for the unusual, a new perspective, a rare view and a particularly keen eye for detail. Three winners will receive a hamper of bespoke St Michael's Mount products from the Courtyard Shop.
