Seasons of the Shetland Crofter - Last chance to enter

Published: 02 July 2019

Time is running out to submit your entry for the ‘Seasons of the Shetland Crofter’ competition.  You do not have to be a professional photographer or a crofter to win, just submit a photo or video that reflects an aspect of life on a Shetland Croft.  It can be a new image or video, or one from the past.  You could win a luxury Vispring Real Shetland Wool Bed and a stay at the spectacular Sumburgh Head lighthouse.

The competition is being run by Jamieson & Smith in collaboration with the Shetland Amenity Trust who run Shetland Wool Week.  Entries will be compiled into a book and video presentation which will be launched at Wool Week in September.  The winners will be announced at the opening night of this year’s event which is in its 10th year. 

Oliver Henry of Jamieson and Smith and patron for this year’s Wool Week said, “The Shetland Summer may have had a few false starts but for crofters this is something they take in their stride, often having to deal with all of the seasons in a single day.  We are looking for photos and videos that really capture crofting life, it can be an old photo or video or something more recent.  We hope the book will be a real insight into the industry past and present and the people and environment at the heart of it.”

The competition closes on 21st July.  To find out more and to enter see www.shetlandwoolbrokers.co.uk/Seasons-of-the-Shetland-Crofter.
