One of Yorkshire’s leading micro-breweries is asking pub landlords and customers to help it celebrate the best of British ‘pub life’.
To mark next month’s launch of its new ’Saltaire Pride’ cask session bitter, the award-winning Saltaire Brewery today (17 September) announced its first ‘Pride in Pub Life’ photography competition, with an invite to pub-goers to capture the day-to-day life in their favourite hostelries.
The best photographs submitted as part of ‘Pride in Pub Life 2012’ will be included in an exhibition to be held early in 2013, with the overall winning image used as part of the marketing for Saltaire Pride. The winning photographer will also receive a cash prize of £250, with cash prizes for the second and third-placed photographers also available.
Tony Gartland, head brewer at Saltaire Brewery, said: “The launch of the Saltaire Pride ‘Pride in Pub Life’ competition is the ideal opportunity for us to celebrate the great British pub and for professional and amateur photographers to show why they’re proud of their local. There’s a wider range of pubs and bars than ever, and each has its own atmosphere. We want to capture that myriad pub life through photographs taken by the people who use those pubs – and we welcome all entries, whether they’re taken with a top-of-the-range camera or a mobile phone.”
Entries for Saltaire Pride ‘Pub Life 2012’ close on 31 October 2012. Full details are available on the Saltaire Brewery website (http://saltairebrewery.co.uk/
Saltaire Pride – a cask bitter with a 3.9 ABV – will be launched into pubs early next month.
