Calling all budding photographers and festival-goers!

This one’s for you if you’ve been out and about town over the festival and captured the colour, energy, diversity and enjoyment of life in the city during August.

The City of Edinburgh Council are asking you to share your best festival photo with them on Pinterest for the chance to win a top-of-the-range tablet! The closing date for entries is 13th September so there’s still time to get out there and record the Mela experience or the end of Festival Fireworks this weekend. Or you can even plunder the past and submit one of your favourites from any of Edinburgh’s 12 festivals from years gone by.

Here’s a typical shot from our archives taken from our Festival City exhibition on Capital Collections:Performer outside National Gallery, the Mound, during the Edinburgh Festival

Full competition details including terms and conditions can be found at the council’s Pinterest festivals photography competition web page.

Good luck!
