Southern Transit – one of Sussex’s leading, and last remaining, independently run bus and coach companies – is delighted to announce the launch of its new ‘Splendid Summer in Sussex’ photography competition.

Photographic CompetitionCelebrating the beauty of Sussex, the competition invites the local community to take a photo of their favourite place in the county. Whether it’s one of the county’s iconic piers, historic castles, stunning beaches, national parks, harbours, railways, or any other location, every photo submitted will be considered as long as it captures Sussex at its best.

Budding photographers have until Friday 7th September to submit their photos. All entries will then be uploaded to Southern Transit’s Facebook page and the public invited to vote for the favourite to determine the winner.

The winner will be rewarded with free private travel on one of Southern Transit’s new Citymaster state-of-the-art buses, to a Sussex location of their choice, for them and up to 71 guests of their choice* – perfect for a special day out with a group of friends and family, or to donate for a child’s school trip or local charity outing!

Sue Rose, Operations Director at Southern Transit, commented:

“Sussex has been the home of Southern Transit for over 15 years and we couldn’t be prouder to be based and one of the UK’s most stunning locations. The county has so much to offer. We regularly take our buses out around Sussex, whether we’re helping with rail replacement, the school run, private hires, our Route 3 service or even wedding and film work, and are constantly blown away by the scenery we get to see every day.

“We’ve launched this competition as a great way to bring the Sussex community together to be proud of their county. We can’t wait to see all the entries!”
