CAN you take a sin­gle pic­ture that best sums up Ash­ford?

Ash­ford’s Fu­ture is launch­ing a pho­to­graphic com­pe­ti­tion to sum up why Ash­ford is ‘Best Placed in Bri­tain’.

From to­mor­row (Fri­day) un­til May 1 en­trants can sub­mit a pic­ture that best en­cap­su­lates the slo­gan.

Prizes in­clude free Eurostar tick­ets, £300 worth of pho­to­graphic vouch­ers and work ex­pe­ri­ence with a pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher.

Ash­ford’s Fu­ture manag­ing di­rec­tor Ju­dith Ar­mitt said: “The Ash­ford brand helps us to pro­mote Ash­ford as a great place to live, work, visit and do busi­ness.

“But we want peo­ple to think about the brand on a more per­sonal level and vi­su­alise the ways in which Ash- ford is best placed.”

Com­pe­ti­tion spon­sors in­clude Eurostar, the Ken­tish Ex­press, Ja­cobs En­gi­neer­ing Group Inc and Snappy Snaps and judges’ chair­man is wildlife pho­tog­ra­pher and Wye res­i­dent Steve Bloom.

Pho­tos can be taken on any cam­era, in­clud­ing mo­bile phone, and the three age cat­e­gories are un­der 12, 12 to 17 and 18 and over.

En­trants should sub­mit one im­age, 1024 x 768 pix­els (min), up­load­ing it at www.ash­fordbest­placed.co.uk/photo

The best five from each age group will be se­lected by the judges. The short­list will be pub­li­cised on­line, in the Ken­tish Ex­press and in an ex­hi­bi­tion, and a win­ners’ dis­play will be put up at County Square on June 13.
