ABF competition looking for images of soldiers at Christmas

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by ArmyBenevolentFund, Jan 12, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Have you had your Christmas photos developed yet? Apart from the usual blurred shots, are there any pictures that you're quite proud of?

    If so, the Army Benevolent Fund is looking for suitable images of soldiers at Christmas to feature on one of its charity Christmas Cards this year. Whether the photos were taken on exercise in Bavaria or Pen-y-fan, or show Christmas in a snowy Catterick or a sunny Basrah, the ABF is interested in any pictures of soldiers taken in a Christmas setting.

    The winning photograph will appear on an Army Benevolent Fund Christmas Card that will be on sale from August this year. All proceeds from the sale of the card will go directly towards helping soldiers, former soldiers and their families – so you really will be doing something worthwhile by entering this competition. The winner will also receive a digital camera, courtesy of NAAFI, and a case of Cobra Beer. Two runners-up will each receive a case of Cobra Beer.

    The competition closing date is March 5. The competition is open to all ranks of the Regular Army, Territorial Army and the Army Cadet Force. All hard copy entries should be posted to: Wendy Lynch, ABF, 41 Queen's Gate, London SW7 5HR. The ABF is a charity and must keep costs to a minimum, therefore if you would like your photograph to be returned please indicate this and enclose a stamp with your entry. All digital entries should be e-mailed to: wlynch@armybenevolentfund.com

    Please remember to include your name, address and telephone number along with your photograph. The short-listed entries will be contacted in May. Good luck!
