We are spreading Christmas cheer early with our Instagram card competition!

Anglo Welsh spread Christmas cheer with Instagram card competition … and Santa’s pitching in with £300 worth of gift vouchers.

Winter on the UK’s waterways can be one of the most magical and picturesque times to capture the beauty of the canals. In fact, it’s one big festive postcard in the making … and we’d like you to supply the images.

As Christmas approaches, our canal-side landscapes are transformed into a winter wonderland: frost clinging to the edges of red leaves; trees coated with glistening frost; snow-covered towpaths; spectacular winter sunsets. Not to mention narrowboats decked out in their Christmas finest, robins foraging for berries and children throwing snowballs!

Anglo Welsh’s 2017 Christmas greeting will be delivered to our friends and customers in December and we would like to offer all festive enthusiasts the chance to have their waterway-inspired photo featured on our #anglowelshxmas Christmas card 2017.

And it’s not just about the feel-good factor of having your festive image dispatched around the country – Santa will be giving the winning contestant £300 worth of vouchers of their choice!

To take part in the #anglowelshxmas competition all you have to do are the following:

  1. Like the #anglowelshxmas post
  2. Follow/ like us on Instagram and Facebook
  3. Upload up to 3 of your festive waterway inspired photos to your chosen platform, using the hashtag #anglowelshxmas, with a caption telling us why you love the festive season!
  4. Be sure to tag us in your photos

Anglo Welsh’s Christmas competition will run until 30th November 2017 at 12pm and the winner will be announced on 1st December 2017 (terms and conditions apply). That means the lucky Instagram snapper will have plenty of time to spend their £300 vouchers before Christmas.

So fill up your flasks, wrap up warm, and head for your nearest canal to capture the magic of the UK’s Winter Wonderland.
