Pics mean prizes
With low winter sun casting a golden glow over Stanhoe, now could be the time to get snapping for a photo competition run by Allied Westminster, the company which insures the Reading Room.
The winner of the “Wonderful British Villages” competition will get an iPad Air, Apple’s latest cool gadget, plus £300 for their village hall. Two runners-up each score a Kindle Paperwhite e-book reader and £150 for their village hall.
Each person can submit up to three photos before the competition closes on 31 March. There’s no limit on the number of submissions from each village, so do encourage other Stanhoe folk to enter.
All entries appear on this web page, where you can also vote for your favourite. The winner will be the photo with the most votes.
All photos should show part of the village or a village activity. The Pit is an obvious starting point, but the competition page shows there’s plenty of room for interpretation. To judge from the handful of entries so far we might struggle in the scenic stakes, but there’s plenty of room for photos of people too.
If you plan to enter, make sure to visit the official competition home page and read the rules too. There’s some small print about naming entries, editing, previous competition winners, and copyright.
