Helston Town Council are creating their own community calendar for 2023.

The Love Helston Photography Competition challenges contestants to send in photos that demonstrate that they 'love Helston.'

This initiative is part of Helston's 'Welcome Back Fund' (WBF) programme of events and activities. The WBF is wholly funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to support the safe return to the high streets and help build back better from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The closing date for entries is 5.00 p.m. on Monday, January 31 2022

The competition will be split into two categories, adults and under 18s.

Each entrant will be limited to a maximum of three photos.

The competition email address: helstonphoto@helston-tc.gov.uk or entries can be given by hand or post to ‘Love Helston’ Photography Competition, The Guildhall, Helston, Cornwall. TR13 8ST

Winners in both categories will be notified by their preferred mode of contact. i.e. email, text or phone call on Friday, February 4 2022.

The top six photographs in each category (12 in total) will feature in a Helston calendar for 2023. Prints of the winning photographs will also be framed and displayed in the town centre and digitalcopies will be displayed on websites and social media channels of the Council and Discover Helston.

The top prize for both categories will be rewarded with £200, second place will receive £100, third will get £50 and £25 will be given to the fourth to sixth placed finishers.

The full list of rules regarding formatting can be found on the Helston Town Council Facebook page.
