If you consider yourself a bit of a dab hand with a camera and see beauty even in the pouring rain and the dank, drizzly landscapes the UK offers, I have a fabulous photography competition for you.

So get the macs and kagools out, get the kids in their wellies and enter Welly Foods “Puddle of the Year” photography competition. The people at Welly, the British cooked meat brand, are looking for your pictures of your favourite puddles.
Puddles are something we Brits are very au fait with and have themselves had many a celebrity moment.
From the comic never ending puddle on the Vicar of Dibley, to the recent Dame Joan Collin’s puddle war on Twitter, it is time they were celebrated.
As Richard Morris, Welly’s marketing controller says; “As a nation we are used to endless rain so it is time we faced facts and celebrated the wet British weather. Through Puddle of the Year we want to encourage people to grab their wellies and see the beauty in the great outdoors. We look forward to seeing the selection of photos entered.”
