Remember to share your images of your Essex Big Weekend experience with us on social media – and you could win fantastic prizes!

We are running the Essex Big Weekend Selfie Competition on 1st and 2nd April. All you need to do is share a selfie of you enjoying #EssexBigWeekend on Twitter on Saturday 1st or Sunday 2nd April, and you could win a great prize!

To be in with a chance of winning, do the following:

  • Take a creative, funny or simply stunning selfie at your allocated Essex Big Weekend attraction (with your friends and family too!)
  • Upload to Twitter or facebook
  • Use #essexbigweekend - this is how we’ll find your pic, so don’t forget or we may miss it!
  • Tag or mention the attraction you are visiting – and all the fun you’re having!

Your image should really show off your destination so we can inspire other people to visit Essex. And we don’t really mind if someone else takes the photo, as long as it shows you and the attraction!

The competition closes at 9pm Monday 3rd April. The winner will be selected by the Visit Essex team and will be contacted via social media, so please respond!

 Prizes include:  A Wilkin & Sons preserve makers Hamper of goodies, a voucher for two for a mid-week spa day at Lifehouse, a voucher for two for £20 to spend on a Show of choice at the Princes Theatre Clacton, Afternoon Tea for two at Orsett Hall Hotel, Tour, wine tasting and lunch for two at Dedham Vale Vineyard and a Family ticket for Audley End Miniature Railway.
