Ride Rater Photographer of the Year 2017

Ride Rater Photographer of the Year

As another busy theme park season ends in 2017, we are once more looking to name one of you our Photographer of the Year.

The competition is simple – you submit to us a single image, taken in the United Kingdom in 2017, 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.

The past four years of the competition have seen some quality entries, and we are hoping that the standard will be maintained or even exceeded in 2017.

To be in with a chance of winning, 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.


  1. Photographs must not feature facially-identifiable persons without their consent.
  2. Strictly one entry per person.
