Creative photographers in London are being sought by British notebook brand Nu:, which has launched a nationwide competition to find three striking images to use on its 2018 collection.

Photography fans of all abilities are able to submit their snaps, both amateur and professional, to be considered for the front and rear covers of the brand’s newest notebooks, which will be stocked in high-street retailers across the country.

Pictures can be of any subject, whether that’s of local landmarks, skylines, landscapes or abstract still-life photography, however selfies are unlikely to make the cut.

Entries must be submitted by Monday 24th April, after which a shortlist of nine of the most impressive pics will be revealed on social media. Facebook and Twitter followers will then be asked to vote for their favourite picture, with the three most voted for being taken through to production and distribution - landing on store shelves in 2018.

Louise Spencer-Stevens, Product & Marketing Manager at Nuco International, said: “Every time we choose to update or introduce a new range to our portfolio, we first think about our customers and what they most want to see in a notebook. Whether that’s a bold new colour and pattern or improved paper quality, we aim to always better our products to suit their needs.

“When we decided we wanted to introduce a feature photography range, we initially struggled to decide on exactly what each should represent and which pictures we should choose. So we thought that it would be best to open the floor to our customers, let their creativity shine and encourage them to share their best photos with us. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then having your photo adorning the cover of notebooks in schools, offices and homes across the UK is no mean feat.”

Entries can focus on any subject, but must be in portrait orientation. As long as entries meet the minimum requirements, photographers are encouraged to submit images from any device, including smartphones and DSLR cameras.

Photographs should be emailed to by Monday 24th April.

Terms & Conditions:

Images will need to be submitted as PSD, TIFF or PNG files and must be A4 (210 by 297 mm or W2480 x L3508 Pixels) in size.

Entries must be sent by email to:

Deadline for entries is midnight on Monday 24th April 2017. The nine finalists will be revealed on Nu:’s social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) on Wednesday 26th April 2017. Voting for the three winners will open immediately and will close on Wednesday 3rd May 2017. The three winning pictures will be announced on the morning of Thursday 4th May 2017.
