Eastbourne Freegle Photo Competition

If you are a member of Eastbourne Freegle, I've found out about a great photo competition that you might like to enter. If you're not yet a member, join up now because you've only got a week left to enter a great photo competition!

Eastbourne Freegle has gained another 700 members in the last year bringing them to over 5,200! If you have never 'freegled', the group is basically an online forum where people post offers of items they no longer want and others post details of items they are in need of. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle in action! I was surprised when I first visited at the sheer variety of stuff available - household items, craft supplies, pet equipment, garden tools, ....

Freegle moderator Melissa emailed to say "It's now time to find a new photo to adorn the group page, to show off the beauty of Eastbourne and the surrounding areas, and the camera skills of our members. The theme this time is - 'Unseen Eastbourne'. We hope you'll be inspired to enter photos that show your favourite sights, views and thoughts of your town - the bits the tourists might never see! The winning photo will be incorporated into a Freegle graphic and will be the first thing people see when they visit or join the Eastbourne Freegle group or Facebook page. We look forward to seeing your photos. Good luck!" 

Small Print: All photos must be your own, and by submitting the photo you give Freegle permission to then use it on the group site. Please do not include close-ups of people and businesses but apart from that, any picture you feel represents or highlights the best of the area within the theme is all the criteria you need to fulfil! Each member may enter 1 photo of their choice. All pictures must be entered by Sunday 28th July, and voting will then be open until Sunday 11th August. 
Please send photos to EastbourneFreegle-owner@yahoogroups.co.uk to enter. All photos will be available to view when voting opens.
