As part of the Purple4Polio campaign, we are hosting two photography competitions, with £700 worth of gardening vouchers up for grabs for each of the winners.
Competition 1 – Community Planting
Community is at the heart of everything that Rotary does and mass crocus planting activities provide a fantastic opportunity to bring people together and unite them in a common cause. This part of the photo competition is a great opportunity to capture Rotary’s community ethos in action!
Lots of Rotary clubs are taking advantage of Rotary’s partnership with the Royal Horticultural Society and are planting with their community-based Bloom Groups, but you can also get schools, youth groups and other community organisations involved. These are the links we want to see in your photos.
Competition 2 – Flowering – The Floral Guernsey Prize
With millions of crocuses being planted up and down the country, areas are going to be covered in a carpet of purple. Once flowered, the patches of purple will be helping to raise awareness of Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign and the vital funds needed to achieve eradication once and for all. The Floral Guernsey competition is another photo competition for the best floral display.
The competition will also allow entry via the Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland Facebook and Twitter channels; however, this form of entry will not be available until a later date.
Rotary is all about action and innovative ideas, and we want that to be the case with your competition entries. Check out our full competition criteria for more details, as well as the full competition terms and conditions.
