The Illuminated River Foundation, which has illuminated the Thames River bridges, has partnered with the Thames Festival Trust to introduce a new Illuminated River category in their ThamesLens photo competition.

The Illuminated River stretches across nine bridges from Lambeth to London Bridges and is a long-term art installation that lights up the bridges between Lambeth Bridge and London Bridge with individual lighting effects.

The competition encourages non-professional photographers to take unique photos of the Thames and what it means to them personally with the theme ‘My Thames Vision’.

The public can submit photographs of the Illuminated River artwork at night for the chance to win the following prizes:

  • First prize / overall winner: £ 500 cash prize plus an exclusive 2x dinner cruise with City Cruises
  • Second prize: Philips Hue Smart lighting system plus an exclusive dinner cruise x 2 with City Cruises

The competition closes for registration on Friday, January 28, 2022.

The winners of the Illuminated River category will be chosen by a panel of representatives from the Thames Festival Trust, the Port of London Authority and Sarah Gaventa.

This website has been running for a little over a decade now and although advertising revenue contributes to the financing of the website but does not cover the costs. Therefore, I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the cost of the website and time invested in writing and researching the news articles.

It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller sites are now seeking to generate revenue in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it’s a one-time donation or a regular donor, any additional support will go a long way to cover the running costs of this website and keep you up to date with news and facts from London.

If you like what you read here, please support the website here.

thank you
