Final Call for MP's Instagram Competition

People from across the Vale have been sending their best pictures of the area to local MP, Alun Cairns, as part of his Instagram Competition.

Mr Cairns is aiming to find the most beautiful photographs of his constituency and with the deadline looming, he is encouraging more constituents to enter.

The competition is due to close on the 31st July.


The Vale MP is calling for local residents to send in their favourite photographs that they have taken throughout the Vale and submit them to his Instagram account.   


The competition has been running throughout the summer and already many pictures have been entered. However, Mr Cairns wants even more entries before the finishing date. There is no cost to enter, but Alun Cairns’ Instagram profile (@AlunCairns) must be tagged in the picture, with the hashtag #LoveTheVale or #BestOfBarry.


Mr Cairns has said “The Vale of Glamorgan has some incredible scenery and I want to join with constituents in celebrating those beauty spots. I am hoping that this competition will encourage people to visit locations throughout the Vale that they may not have seen before.


He added, “I have been tagged in some beautiful photos so far and I’m hoping residents will continue to submit their entries, there is no such thing as too many entries.”


The competition ends on the 31st July and winners will be announced at the Vale Agricultural Show on the 8th August. The winning picture will also feature on his website and in the Barry & District.
