Ride Rater Photographer of the Year 2016

Ride Rater Photographer of the Year

As another theme park season ends in 2016, we are once again looking to name one of you our Photographer of the Year.

It is quite a simple prospect, you submit a single image to us – taken in the UK in 2016 – and we will select a winner, which will be announced in December.

The winner will receive an engraved Ride Rater award, and will also be entered into our Hall of Fame alongside previous winners.

We have had some incredible entries in the previous three years of the competition, and we are hoping that the standard will be maintained – or exceeded – this time.

To be in with a chance of winning this accolade, simply email your photograph by clicking here. Please note the rules, terms and conditions below.

Please use our contact form if you have any questions regarding the competition.
