Sussex charity launches photography competition to offer hope
Hope is the theme for a prize photography competition launched by Sussex charity Family Support Work to help fund its work with children and families in crisis.
The charity says the past few months have been difficult for everybody but its work revolves around the hope that it can bring to families in crisis.
With this in mind, it is delighted to announce a photography competition with two categories, one for children up to and including the age of 14, and one for over-14s.
Entries can be any photo taken since March on the theme of Hope, including nature, family, landscapes and portraits.
Caroline Nicholls, bishop’s champion for the charity and a West Sussex Deputy Lieutenant, will be judging the winners.
She said: “The photo competition will help Family Support Work raise some much-needed funds. Judging the entries will be a difficult task, especially among the junior entries, but I am looking forward to seeing how people interpret the theme of hope.”
Prizes are £25 for the 14 and under category and £50 for over-14s. The runner up in each category will receive a gift voucher.
Entry costs £3 per photo and the deadline is November 23. Winners will be announced on Monday, November 30.
