It’s back! The search to see which public building can follow in the footsteps of Museum of Liverpool by being crowned the UK’s Best Window with a View is on!
New to this year’s competition, we are also giving homeowners the chance to show off beautiful views from their own properties with the launch of ‘Home with a View’.
Window with a View launched last year to celebrate the country’s diverse architecture and landscapes, experienced from any building open to the public. Shining a spotlight on the UK’s thriving tourism industry, the competition received widespread entries from across the country who wanted to share the views which they believed to be the UK’s most stunning.
Last September, the view from the People’s Republic Gallery at the Museum of Liverpool won the inaugural crown of the UK’s Best Window with a View, followed by the Becket Chapel at Peterborough Cathedral and Birmingham Library, in second and third place respectively.
The campaign saw huge success in the press, including on Yahoo, MSN, ITV and BBC, creating conversation in newspapers, magazine, online, TV and radio.
New for 2017, Home with a View invites the public to submit a picture taken from inside a house, sharing a spectacular view that perhaps only they are lucky enough to enjoy.
Homes in the UK boast some of the world’s best views. With everything from rolling beaches and far-reaching countryside, to historic ruins and industrious cityscapes being right on our doorstep, millions of homeowners across the country are proud of the views they and their family enjoy and now we want to share that view too!
The Window with a View and Home with a View competitions will run alongside one another, with entries closing on 30 April 2017. A regional shortlist for each category will then be decided by a panel of experts, with a public vote to decide the two national winners which will be announced later this year.
Prizes are available for homeowners submitting images from their home, with extra prizes available in the regional and national voting stages of both competitions.
