24 hours of Bristol Energy photography

12 April 2016

We’re calling on all photographers to capture Bristol at its best in this year’s 24 Hours in Bristol photography competition.

• We’re giving £1,000 to the photo that best captures the theme: ‘Bristol - A city buzzing with positive energy’.

• And we’re offering free entries into the competition for 25 of our customers.

The 24 Hours in Bristol photographic competition records a day in the life of the city from 12.00pm on Saturday 16th April to 12.00pm on Sunday 17th April. Each entrant is randomly allocated a specific hour of the day or night in which they must take at least one photo.

Capturing Bristol’s positive energy

Launched earlier this year, Bristol Energy will be a force for social good by offering fair, transparent tariffs and championing social equality in its founding city. To mark its first few months of trading, the Bristol Energy prize will capture Bristol’s positive spirit, and celebrate the first city in the South West to wholly own its own energy company.

Peter Haigh, Managing Director of Bristol Energy said:

“We are delighted to be involved in an event which is so inclusive and accessible for everyone in Bristol with a camera or mobile phone. Bristol Energy is proud to be a local gas and electricity supplier that is from Bristol and reinvesting back into Bristol.

“Our brief is about celebrating the positive energy, diversity and passion of the people that make Bristol so special. We are very much looking forward to seeing the incredible variety of images that reflect the vibrancy of the city."

Anyone with a camera or smartphone can enter

Anyone with a camera or smartphone is invited to enter and previous years have seen around 10,000 images of Bristol taken during the single competition day.

And whilst the competition celebrates Bristol’s positive energy, the city’s newest gas and electricity supplier is hoping to save people money on their energy bills too.

Around 40,000 households in the South West have never switched their supplier, and are likely to be paying higher standard variable tariffs.

Bristol Energy predicts savings of around £11m across the city if the average dual fuel customer, who has never switched before, signs up to the company’s one year fixed tariff, choosing to pay by direct debit and receiving bills online. That’s £276 per household.
