Keep calm and carry on with ViewRanger's Great British Bank Holiday Competition


What does the August Bank Holiday in the great outdoors mean to you? It could be anything from relaxing with friends in beautiful scenery, mountain biking in the fells, to a soggy tent and ice creams in the rain!

Whatever you get up to, using the ViewRanger app will turn your phone into an outdoors sat nav and keep you on track. ViewRanger is free to download, comes with lots of useful maps and gives you access to the biggest guidebook in the UK.
Just send in a picture that encapsulates the ‘Great British Bank Holiday’ and you'll be entered for a chance to win a ViewRanger Survival Kit including Ordnance Survey mapping for the entire British Isles (worth £89.99) – the perfect accompaniment to any outdoor activity.

Competition prize for best photograph

The winner will receive a ViewRanger Bank Holiday survival kit.  This will contain ViewRanger credits to download 1:50,000 Ordnance Survey Mapping for the entire British Isles, which is searchable by postcode or grid reference, and a PowerMonkey Explorer solar powered battery charger to keep your phone topped up when away from home (see picture - prize does not include phone). 

ViewRanger will also throw in a thermos flask, pack of playing cards and a foil survival blanket - as you never know with the British weather!

Five runners-up will receive £30 of credit to spend on Ordnance Survey mapping, international premium mapping or guided routes from a choice of over 400 brands.
