Open your eyes to picturesque London

10th May 2011 Print

Fight for Sight, the UK’s leading eye research charity, and Park Plaza Hotels & Resorts have teamed up to launch the second annual My View of London photography competition.

Open for entries from today (9 May 2011), the competition invites Londoners and visitors to the capital to capture their favourite view of the city for a chance to win a host of valuable prizes, including: a two-night hotel stay at the stylish Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London hotel; spa treatments at the luxurious new Mandara Spa; and dinner for two at the award-winning Chino Latino restaurant.

The competition has gained the support of a number of well-known individuals from actors, socialites and sportspeople. Tamara Beckwith, Phyllida Law, David Haye, Jenny Éclair and Rachel Johnson among many more, have all donated pictures of their favourite views of the spectacular capital in order to inspire entrants.

Entries can be submitted to until 23 June 2011 under the four competition categories:

In the UK, an estimated 100 people begin to lose their sight every day. By encouraging people to take a moment to appreciate the spectacular views London has to offer, Fight for Sight is hoping the photo competition will bring home the importance of sight.

“Living with sight loss is a reality for too many people,” says Annu Mayor, Fight for Sight Director of Communications.

“The My View of London photography competition provides an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of research for preventing and treating blindness and eye disease.”

My View of London is supported by Park Plaza Hotels, a stylish collection of individually designed, contemporary hotels located in convenient city-centre locations. Each of the six London Park Plaza hotels offers guests spacious guest rooms and suites, chic bars and restaurants, modern meeting and event facilities and a host of boutique touches alongside spectacular London views.
