Could you become the photography king of the Windsor Castle Concours?

Calling all keen amateur photographers – if you’ve attended a traditional concours d’elegance event and taken a picture of which you’re particularly proud, you could find yourself at this September’s Concours of Elegance at Windsor Castle as a V.I.P. guest…

As the digital media partner for the 2016 Concours of Elegance – held on 2-4 September at The Queen’s official residence of Windsor Castle in England – Classic Driver has been selected to host the official photography competition, open to amateur photographers around the world. The winner will receive a package including V.I.P. tickets to the 2016 event, behind-the-scenes access to the 2017 event, and one of the official Pullman Editions event posters. You’ll also lead the arrival procession of concours cars down Windsor Castle’s famous Long Walk in your own chauffeur-driven Bentley Mulsanne. Nine runners up will receive a pair of standard tickets for the 2016 Concours of Elegance.

To enter, all you need to do is upload the image (taken at any concours event) to Instagram with the hashtag #ConcoursComp, and follow the official Classic Driver and Concours of Elegance accounts. Once the competition closes on 12 August, we will select the winner and nine runners-up together with official event photographer Tim Scott. Please note that because this competition is open globally, travel will not be included.
