Photography Competition Set To Celebrate Hailsham
21 Feb 2018

The historic market town of Hailsham, set within the beautiful county of East Sussex, is the inspiration for photographers being challenged to send in their local snaps for the chance to win a slice of a £1,000 cash prize.

Award-winning housebuilder Linden Homes has launched the contest for people of all ages who reside in Hailsham, with a closing date of Sunday 15th April.

The first of the two categories for entry is “Hailsham buildings and architecture”. This will focus on local buildings, whether long shots or close-ups of intricate details. The second category is centred around “Hailsham life,” encompassing images such as treasured moments, events, landscapes or traditions.

Gold, silver and bronze prizes will be awarded in each category. Gold winners will receive £250, Silver winners £150 and Bronze winners £100. The top pictures will be framed and given pride of place in the Show Home of Linden Homes’ new Millwood Park development, a collection of high quality two, three, and four -bedroom houses on Mill Road in Hailsham.

Darren Maddox, Managing Director for Linden Homes South East, said: “Hailsham is a beautiful market town and residents are very proud to live here, so we’re expecting a very high standard of photos from the community.

“The countryside and old buildings around here will offer plenty of inspiration. Get snapping and send in your photos – we can’t wait to see them.”

The winners of the competition will also be invited to attend a special event in the spring where they will be presented with their prize, have their picture taken and see their photo on display in the Show Home.

Darren added: “Whether you’re looking for your first home, next home or downsizing from your current one, Millwood Park offers excellent value for money. Less than a mile from Hailsham town centre, this development is going to be extremely popular with local househunters looking to stay close to a town full of rural charm in a home to suit a modern lifestyle.”
