The Friends of WHH Photographic Competition 2015 – “Kent In Winter”

The six photos selected by the judges will be used to create Christmas Cards that will be sold in aid of the Friends of William Harvey Hospital, with all proceeds going to the charity. You can enter up to three photos. The closing date for entries is 23 October 2015.

The photographs will be used to create Christmas Cards, so this can be borne in mind and naturally, it means that photos will probably have been taken in the past! If the competition is successful, we will run it again next year.

Please read the rules before entering:
