Fresh Almonds

“Fresh Almonds”

We’re holding a photography competition that celebrates the fantastic biodiversity of Portland in Jamaica.  This region’s richness of life makes it an area of outstanding beauty, from mountain to rainforest to beach, and the flora & fauna provide food and home to our many endemic birds, marine life and of course livestock.  It’s also often forgotten that it’s this biodiversity that provides for many in Jamaica their shelter, food and even the clothes that they wear.

We are inviting you to submit your photographs taken on holiday whilst staying at Hotel Mockingbird Hill, took exploring the parish of Portland.  We love to see through new eyes the parts of the parish that we ourselves don’t always get to visit when we are running the hotelstrong

Prize

Each month we will select the best of the photographs submitted and send the winner a Buscha Browne hamper whose sauces, chutneys and jellies are all authentic Jamaican blend of herbs and spices and will help you remember through taste the land of wood and water in your own cooking.
