Photographic competition

Continuing in the tradition of Lilian Ream, Wisbech Society is running a photographic competition in association with the town’s Currys PC World store.

The competition theme is ‘What I Like About Wisbech’ and entrants are asked to prepare up to five photographs, each accompanied by no more than 25 words explaining why their chosen subject is special to them.

The Currys PC World store on Belgrave Retail Park, off Cromwell Road, Wisbech, is generously providing prizes for the two competition categories: for photographers up to 18 years old and for those 19 years and older.

In each case the prize consists of a 64GB BlackBerry PlayBook 7in Tablet with a one-year subscription to a 50GB Knowhow Cloud Storage Backup facility.

Neil Winter, manager at the Wisbech store said: “With Knowhow cloud you’ll have your photographs and important moments safeguarded and secured in a remote location for complete peace of mind. Access your files from more or less anywhere thanks to the Knowhow Cloud App, and take your pictures, videos, music and data on the move.”

The winning photographs will be displayed at the store, along with a selection of the most meritorious entries.

The closing date for entries is June 22.

Entries can be delivered via the Wisbech office of the Fenland Citizen, at 11 Union Street, or by email to
