Don’t miss the deadline for “Community Spirit” Photo Competition 23 August 2007

Your photo could be the winner of £2,000 grand prize

Photographers young and old are reminded that they have until 31 August to submit their entries to the Freedom to Flourish “Community Spirit” Photo competition.

This photographic competition has been all about celebrating our community and the things that make the Isle of Man unique, so photos have been invited in these four categories:

• Community groups at work and play

• Family activities in the Isle of Man

• Helping one another

• Enjoying life in the Isle of Man.

In each category there will also be a junior class for those under 18 years of age. The overall winner will receive £2,000 and the best photo by a junior will earn £500 for the young photographer. Top prize in each category will be £500 and £100 will go to the junior winner in each.

The competition will be judged by the yachting photographer Rick Tomlinson, a former Manx resident. Rick is best known for capturing the Southern Ocean at its most treacherous during several Whitbread Round the World Races.

A firm of local advocates with an international reach, Cains, has sponsored the competition and provided the generous prizes.

Andrew Corlett, the firm’s Managing Director said,

“Cains are delighted to sponsor this exciting competition. Globalisation presents a huge challenge to all nations: how to achieve a dynamic economy whilst at the same time maintaining a cohesive society. The Isle of Man is extremely fortunate that it still has such a vibrant network of clubs and societies together with a strong sense of community engagement.”

The winning images will be used to illustrate the Island’s strong community spirit in local and international promotional efforts as part of the Freedom to Flourish strategy.
