Get behind the scenes of the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert at the Edinburgh International Festival
On Sunday 2 September, the Edinburgh International Festival will draw to a spectacular conclusion with the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert.
With live music from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, more than 100,000 fireworks will be fired from Edinburgh's iconic castle, lighting up the skyline with a display intricately designed to enhance the music and bring the summer festival season to a spine-tingling finale.
Blipfoto have teamed up with the Edinburgh International Festival to offer two lucky winners the unique opportunity to get behind the scenes and photograph the set-up in Edinburgh Castle, before capturing the action from Princes Street Gardens when the Concert starts at 9pm.
