L’Hospitalet searches for its favourite corner once again

From 3 july to 27 august, residents will be able to take part in the third edition of the photography competition Mi Rincón Favorito de L'Hospitalet

Today marks the start of the entry period for the third edition of Mi Rincón Favorito de L’Hospitalet (My Favourite Corner of L’Hospitalet): an Instagram-based photography competition that invites residents to submit photographs that showcase the city’s highlights and hidden treasures.

In order to take part, entrants must do the following:

  1. Take a photograph on their mobile phone (or any other device).
  2. Upload the image to Instagram using the competition hashtags #mirinconfavorito and #mirinconfavoritoLH, and tag the profile @lhturisme.
  3. Fill out the entry form, which also contains the competition rules.
  4. Send the photograph to the e-mail address turisme@l-h.cat.

The competition is open to all residents aged 18 and over, and entries can be submitted from today (3 July) through to 27 August. The photographs, which can be digitally retouched, must be taken in L’Hospitalet or make reference to the city. Entrants must also specify the location where the image was taken. Each entrant can submit up to five photographs, and a separate form must be filled out for each entry.

The accompanying text describing the image forms an integral part of the work and the panel of judges may take it into account when choosing the winners. There are no restrictions regarding format or size, and the images can include emoticons.

The winning images will be chosen by a panel of judges comprised of technical officers from L’Hospitalet City Council and leading figures from the world of photography.

The competition offers two prizes: a first prize of 200 euros and a second prize of 100 euros. The participating photographs will be published on the Instagram account of @lhturisme, while the images ranked in the first four places will be printed on a variety of promotional materials (postcards, stickers and posters).

Additionally, the first-place photograph will be entered into the national competition of Mi Rincón Favorito, along with the winning images for the other contests that take place around the country. Prizes for the national competition range from 50 to 500 euros.

The winners of the local competition will be announced between 15 and 20 September, while the national winners will be announced on 27 September, to coincide with World Tourism Day.


Promoting L’Hospitalet as a tourist destination

This is the third edition of the Mi Rincón Favorito (My Favourite Corner) competition and the third time that L’Hospitalet has taken part. In the 2021 edition, L’Hospitalet submitted more photographs than any other city, while last year’s edition received 142 entries. At the national level, for the first two editions there were 50 local competitions and more than 7,000 photographs submitted overall.

The aim of the competition is to stimulate the creativity of local residents in the field of digital photography, while generating rewarding content on social media through a responsible approach designed to foster cultural activity. The competition also serves a promotional purpose, by enabling the users of a particular location to highlight those aspects that they consider most relevant.

This event forms part of the initiatives taken by the City Council to promote L’Hospitalet as a tourist destination, with the aim of showcasing its many attractions and enabling visitors and residents to discover unique and special locations that reinforce the image of L’Hospitalet as a city for tourists.

L’Hospitalet is an urban destination in which culture acts as the central driver of tourist development, complemented by a wide range of culinary options and sporting events and activities. Conference- and business-based tourism clearly constitutes the city’s key differentiating factor. This competition provides us with an insight into the perspective of residents and tourists alike, and presents an image of a city that is lively and constantly growing.
