We are excited to launch the 2018 Village Life Photography Competition and we are asking you to send us your images that celebrate the villages that you live in and love.
This year we are joining forces with village parish councils including Coppull, Croston, Eccleston and Heskin and are inviting these communities to capture images that really illustrate the best that their beautiful villages have to offer.
Our villages are some of the most photographed in Lancashire and there is much to be inspired by. With beautiful open spaces and communal spaces, quirky hidden gems, much loved local businesses and of course an abundance of history, there is lots to celebrate.
Home Truths Director, John Ascroft, said: “We were delighted with the success of last year’s ‘Let’s Celebrate Coppull’ photography competition and we were inundated with requests to extend this year’s competition to include even more villages. So, we have done just that!
“This year’s exciting photography competition is open to everyone; amateur and professional photographers alike. We are asking adults to send in images with the title ‘Village Life’ and for children aged 16 and under we have a special category, titled ‘What I Love About My Village!’
“Ultimately, we are looking for images that really illustrate the villages we live and work in and that in one image, capture the unique and special qualities that will strike a chord with the entire community.”
We are looking for images of Coppull, Eccleston, Croston, Bretherton, Mawdesely, Heskin and Charnock Richard and we are asking for all submitted images to be titled with a caption that describes how their image illustrates village life.
There will be a shortlist of 10 images for both the adult’s and children’s category and these top 20 images will be shared across Home Truths social media platforms, on the Home Truths website, in the Home Truths shop window’s and in the village parish newsletters.
The community will be invited to vote for their favourites and every vote will count!
One the voting stage has drawn to a close, the top twenty images will be put in front of the judging panel to select the overall two winning images.
The winners will be revealed in December and will not only win a special trophy but will also win a £50 gift voucher. The ideal prize for some extra Christmas shopping spends!
If you would like to get involved in the competition you just need to send your images to the Home Truths Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/hometruthsestatesandlettings/, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by visiting one of the Home Truths offices in Eccleston or Coppull, or in the post to 265 The Green, Eccleston, PR7 5TF.
The deadline for entries is the 12 pm on the 31st of October.
