Allied Westminster's ‘Wonderful Villages’ Photo Competition has started!

N.B. PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE COMPETITION’S THEME WHEN SUBMITTING ENTRIES. TO QUALIFY FOR JUDGING, ELIGIBLE ENTRIES MUST EXPRESS THE THEME:

‘Village Life - a photo which characterises the value of community in your village’.

If your hall is interested in submitting entries (halls can make multiple entries) then please READ THE RULES to ensure your entry is eligible.

If you would like an A4 poster to print and display on your hall noticeboard to encourage members to collaborate, you can download one here:

If you would like to be notified automatically about competition news, please ‘FOLLOW’ the Allied Westminster Facebook page so that the announcements will appear in your Facebook News Feed. 

PLEASE NOTE: The competition will not focus on ‘pretty, pretty’ villages but will celebrate village life and the role of village halls in their communities. Judges will be looking for photos that encapsulate the sense of village community.

YOU CAN SHARE YOUR PHOTO AFTER ENTRY SO THAT YOUR HALL KNOWS WHERE TO FIND IT. AND PLEASE VOTE ON OTHER ENTRIES! FIVE QUALIFYING PHOTOS WITH THE MOST VOTES WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE SHORT-LISTED FOR JUDGING. THE PHOTO GALLERY IS HERE: https://villagehallsurvey.com/survey/photo-competition/photo-gallery
