There was great excitement amongst the ‘Let’s do it for ME’ team as all the entries were being posted up for the first stage of judging earlier this week. We knew, following the success of last year’s competition, they were going to be good and you didn’t disappoint us! The quality and creativeness of photos has been simply amazing, with the added bonus of quite a few humorous ones too. Well over 200 photographs were entered in the end, so we certainly have had our work cut out looking through them all. This has made selecting those for the online vote whilst difficult also extremely enjoyable. We want to say a very big thank you to everyone for taking part.
But now it’s your turn to vote! You can vote in two ways, either by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your chosen photos. (To make it easier to identify and vote for photos we have numbered them. When emailing us, all you need to do is state the number of the photo or photos you have chosen.) Alternatively, you can go to our Facebook Competition Event’s Page and simply vote for your chosen photos by 'Liking' them. You can vote for as many photos as you want. There are 31 photos in all. But remember, online voting closes at midnight on Sunday 22nd September. Those with the most votes will be sent onto Invest in ME, who will then judge the final stage by choosing from these the winning photographs the ones that will go on to be printed. We aim to print ten photos on our 2013 Christmas Cards and will announce the winners on 27th September, both on our blog and Competition Event’s Page. We hope to have the cards ready for sale by mid-October. They will all be sold in aid of Invest in ME's biomedical research fund.
But that’s not all. We have plans for something very special in the run up to Christmas using some of the entries – so watch this space!
Congratulations to everyone who's made it to the online vote!
