You may remember in 2015 we produced some very popular flower cards (designed by CSRF subscriber Jenny Grundy) that were sold to help raise funds for our Golden Jubilee Appeal. The cards sold out and we’ve not produced any items for sale since then. However with fundraising being an important part of our future strategy and cards/notelets always in demand we felt the time was right to consider a new product. This time though we’d like put your photography skills to the test to help us select the pictures we use on the cards.

Competition Theme
The theme for the photo competition is ‘My Favourite Place’. We want to see an image that showcases a place that means something special to you. It could be a building, a location or something else.

How to Enter/Rules
Entry to this competition is straightforward but please follow these rules:

i. Select the picture you wish to submit (Images need to be high resolution and 300 dpi to be a suitable quality for printing). Only one picture is allowed per person.
ii. Send in the picture along with your name, address, contact details, picture title and a sentence explaining why you have picked it (e.g. what makes it your favourite place).
iii. You can submit your picture digitally to [email protected] (marked ‘2019 Photo Competition Entry) OR by post to: 2019 Photo Competition, The CSRF, Unit 11, Pepys House, Greenwich Quay, Clarence Road, London SE8 3EY.
iv. By entering the competition you agree that if your picture is selected as a winning image you grant the CSRF the rights to use it for the purpose of raising funds and give consent for its use for that reason. This would include the use of the image for publicity purposes as part of the promotion of the cards. No payment will be made to individuals for use of a picture submitted.
v. All winning photographers will be credited on the cards and in association with any publicity to promote the cards.
vi. If you require us to return your picture (if submitted in print form), please indicate this when you submit it.
vii. The closing date/time for entries for this competition is 12 noon on Friday 26th July 2019.

Judging
There will be five winners picked. Each will receive a £25 M&S Voucher and have their picture printed on one of the cards along with their name, image title and explanation as to why the picture is their favourite place on the back of the card.

Our new Civil Service Champion Elizabeth Gardiner CB has kindly agreed to pick the five winners. Judging will take place after the closing date and the winners will be contacted directly. The judge’s decision is final. The winning pictures and cards will be showcased in the Autumn/Winter issue of Fellowship News which comes out in October.
