The view from the window of Grimsthorpe Castle near Bourne is in the running to be judged the best in the region.

This photo, right, was submitted into the national competrition launched by MyGlazing.com, the new independent website which offers free consumer advice on the best glazing for your home.

The competition invited anyone visiting or working at an attraction or building open to the public to embrace their inner photographer and take a picture from a window that has a particularly impressive view.

Four attractions and buildings across the East Midlands have fought off tough competition to be shortlisted for the area’s best ‘Window with a View’. The aim of the competition is to showcase the country’s landscape.

The view from Grimsthorpe Castle is battling it out with views from Lincoln Castle, Sudbury Hall in Derbyshire, and Langar Hall in Nottingham, which were deemed the best in the region.

In total, there were more than 150 entries, ranging from coastlines and landscapes to city skylines and industrial scenes.

A judging panel of experts from the tourism, architecture, photography, construction and interior industries selected the four best images for each area of the UK, taking the window, view and overall photograph into consideration for the scoring process.

Now, the public are being asked to vote for their favourite Window with a View in each area by visiting www.myglazing.com/WWAV. Those who vote will be entered into a draw with the chance to win a variety of prizes.

Voting closes on July 29. Each area winner will then be put forward to win the title of the UK’s Best Window with a View, with voting for the national title running throughout August.
