VisitEngland is launching a competition to encourage people to post a one minute video of their favourite moments enjoying living in England. The creator of the best clip, as voted by the public, will win a free holiday. The best clips posted will also be included in the September marketing campaign.

“Although most Brits are aware that there are great things to see and do in England, over half of us admit to not making the most of our free time,” said head of marketing for VisitEngland Amanda Smyth. “We’re hoping to inspire people to get out and about in England and discover the hundreds of experiences you can have in this country from sailing on a pirate ship near Brixham to a horse riding adventure in the New Forest.”

Clips can be posted on We’d be interested to find out if any of the readers of this blog enter and what your minute of enjoying England is. Perhaps if you’re already going away then that would be a perfect opportunity to make your film!
