WRAS 25th Year Photo Competition & Mug.

As it is WRAS’s 25th year as a voluntary group, we want to celebrate the nature of East Sussex by running a nature photo competition.  It will be £5 to enter up to 5 photos and then an additional £1 per extra photo sent.  The photos have to be based on the theme of “Sussex Nature”  so can include photos of wildlife, plants or country scenes etc.

In each edition of the newsletter we will announce a winner who will receive a  celebratory WRAS 25th Year mug and their photo in the newsletter and on our social media sites. We will also produce a calendar of the best entries,  anyone featuring in the calendar will also receive a WRAS 25th year mug too.

How to enter:  Your photos need to be in either a png, gif, jpg, bmp or similar picture format and between 1 and 2 MB in size.

E-mail your photos as an attachment to media@eastsussexwras.org.uk along with your name, address and phone number.

Then send payment via paypal to the same e-mail address and add a note with the payment to say it is WRAS’s Photo Competition and your name.

If you are sending money from a different e-mail address from which you are sending the photos, please give the e-mail address in the note so we can match up the payment to the photos.

We can also accept photos on disk or memory card with a cheque payable to “East Sussex WRAS” if sent to East Sussex WRAS, Unit 2, The Shaw Barn, Whitesmith, BN8 6JD.

Want to buy a mug?  If you don’t want to enter but fancy buying one of our celebratory 25th year mugs then you can pick one up from our Eastbourne Charity Shop at 192 Terminus Road Eastbourne BN21 3BB, or from our the reception at our Casualty Centre. They are also available via our Ebay site for £5.00 plus postage.
