Lawley Village launches competition to capture the very best of life at Lawley
29th May 2013
A consortium of housebuilders is challenging people in Telford to capture the essence of Lawley Village life on camera in a prize photographic contest.
Lawley Village Developer Group (LVDG) – which comprises Barratt Homes, Charles Church, David Wilson Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey – is inviting enthusiastic snappers of any ability to submit eye-catching photography that perfectly reflects the thriving community spirit, the stylish architecture, the superb facilities, or the wonderful scenery surrounding the popular new development.
The competition is being coordinated in partnership with IMS, the long term stewards of the Lawley Village community.
Three separate age categories will give young children, secondary school pupils and adults an opportunity to take on their peers in the Loving Life in Lawley competition – with the winning photographer in each category rewarded with a fantastic prize.
Guy Scott, Director for LVDG, says: "This competition celebrates all the wonderful things that mean so much to those who are part of the growing community of Lawley Village – the people, the lifestyle and the landscapes.
"The beauty of this competition is that everyone will have their own unique take on what makes a great photograph and on what they love most about life at Lawley, so we're expecting to receive entries covering a wide range of subjects.
"Anyone with a keen eye and a camera could be in with a chance of scooping a top prize of up to £500 in this superb contest, so we're encouraging local people to get out there and capture what makes this new community so special."
To enter the Loving Life in Lawley competition, participants can submit up to three photographs that focus on the architecture, the local facilities, residents, the lifestyle or the surrounding countryside at Lawley Village.
The deadline for entries is Friday 30th August and the competition is open to three age groups: 11 years and under, with the winner receiving a £100 gift voucher and the runner-up a £50 gift voucher; 12 to 18 years, with the winner receiving a £100 gift voucher and the runner-up a £50 gift voucher; and adults, with the winner receiving a £500 cheque and the runner-up a £100 cheque.
Each entry should be accompanied by a description of what it is, when it was taken and why it was chosen. Photographs should be submitted with contact details in files titled with the entrant's name and age and sized no bigger than 2MB to firstname.lastname@example.org.
