Last month Small Dole-based Evonprint, one of the county’s leading print, design and marketing specialists, launched their Love Sussex calendar campaign to raise vital funds for Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice, and called out for local residents to nominate their favourite beauty spot, town or city in Sussex.
Evonprint is delighted to announce that the 12 favourite Sussex locations, as voted by its residents, are Chichester Cathedral, Long Furlong, Petworth Deer Park, the Doughnut Sculpture on Brighton Beach, Cuckmere Haven, Tilgate Park, St Leonards Beach, Chanctonbury Hill, Goring Beach, Bury Hill, Kingley Vale and Bosham.
Now the locations have been chosen, the next stage of the Love Sussex calendar campaign can be revealed: the family run business is asking residents to take a photograph of one of the 12 chosen locations for the chance to have their photos included in a special charity calendar. The calendar will be sold in local Chestnut Tree House shops and on Evonprint’s website to raise funds for the children’s hospice that provides specialist palliative care services to 300 children and young people with life-shortening and life-threatening illnesses in East Sussex, West Sussex and South East Hampshire.
The 12 winning photographers, chosen by a panel of judges, will be fully credited within the calendar and will each receive a hamper of goodies worth £150. Sussex residents can also get involved by providing Evonprint with a caption about one of the 12 locations. If chosen to accompany an image they will receive a free calendar.
The deadline to submit photographs and quotes is Monday 31st August and all entries need to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to Evonprint’s Love Sussex Competition, c/o PMW Communications, Stane Court, Stane Street, Billingshurst, West Sussex RH14 9HP.
Steve Rowland, Managing Director at Evonprint, commented: “We would like to thank everyone who took the time to nominate a Sussex location – it was extremely difficult to choose the top 12 to appear in the calendar as there are so many beautiful spots in this county. We are very much looking forward to seeing all the photographs submitted and raising money for Chestnut Tree House.”
