IGers Birmingham Christmas Photo competition – the winners!

When it comes to Christmas, Birmingham well and truly has it all: shops, food, drink, fun, entertainment, more twinkly lights than ever before and this year, the added benefit of SNOW!!! When Visit Birmingham and shoppinginbirmingham.com challenged the IGers Birmingham community to capture the magic of Christmas in Birmingham, we knew our judges would not be disappointed! Over 600 entries were posted – check out #igb_comp_christmasinbham to see them all and you’ll see what a tough job Visit Birmingham had choosing the winners.

Do visit each person’s account to see the original photo!
