Manx Electric Railway Photo Contest

This year we are looking for some extraordinary images from our enthusiasts. In 2018 we are due to celebrate 125 years of the Manx Electric Railway. It therefore seems fitting for this photo contest to begin these celebrations.

You can interpret our theme in any way you like as long as it is Manx Electric Railway related. Please submit no more than five images. Do not alter your images beyond minor colour corrections, burning, dodging, and levels adjustments.

Winners will be announced on the 30th January 2018.

Six winners will each receive:

The six winners of this unique competition will have the prestige of having their image featured on a stamp in a collection from Isle of Man Post Office celebrating 125 Years of the Manx Electric Railway. In addition to this amazing prize each winner would receive a printers’ sheet of their stamp design; which is incredibly rare.

The 6 winners will also receive £75.00 if your image appears on a stamp and runners up will receive £40 if their images are used on supporting material such as presentation packs, or commemorative products.
