Photographer of the Year 2021: Enter now

RideRater Photographer of the Year

After a late start, an extended theme park season has enabled many of you to get out and about with your cameras and smartphones – and we are looking to name one of you our Photographer of the Year.

The competition is simple – you submit to us a single theme/amusement park, fairground or ride image, taken in the United Kingdom at any point during 2021, and we will select a winner.

The winner will also be entered into our Hall of Fame, where someone will be listed as our eighth winner.

The past seven years of the competition have seen numerous some very high quality entries (not least winners), and we are hoping that 2021 will see that continue.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply email your photograph to us by clicking below, noting the rules, terms and conditions of the competition. Don’t forget to include your full name!


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