This Easter Lough Neagh Partnership is offering visitors to the Lough Neagh & Its Waterways Destination the opportunity to share their experience with the world.

They have launched a video competition which will help to promote Lough Neagh & Its Waterways as a visitor destination.

The aim of the competition is for people to capture their visit to Lough Neagh on their smartphone, just a 30 second clip, showing how they enjoyed their trip to Lough Neagh.

The video clip could be anything explains Eimear Kearney, Marketing Officer for the Lough Neagh Partnership.

“We are looking for footage of real life experiences from walking and picnicking along the shore, to enjoying a boat trip on the water, a tour around one of the many historic sites or an adrenalin fuelled tree top adventure.” she said.

“We are encouraging people to be creative with their smartphone, but most of all, we want to see people enjoying themselves, that’s what it’s all about.”

Eimear added: “Lough Neagh and its waterways has so many great experiences and stories to tell, we want to encourage visitors to share theirs in a 30 second (or less) video clip so we can create a promotional video that will be streamed worldwide and give people a flavour for what the destination is all about.”

The Competition is offering a fantastic package of prizes for one lucky winner including; an overnight stay at the White River Hotel for 2 people Dinner, B&B, a Pollan Supper for 2 at the fried Fish Warehouse, a £20 gift voucher for the Crosskeys Inn, a Tree Top Adventure as well as a Zorb roll at the Jungle NI and a Samsung Galaxy Tablet, a Digital Camcorder (sponsored by Watson & Co Chartered Marketing) and a Belleek Pottery Serenity 12 piece dining set (sponsored by Inform Communications).
