Hopefully this competition will keep Whit Friday alive and help us fill a very big wall with photographs of Whit Friday's gone by. Now I know that everyone has photographs of the bands but these are not the ones we are looking for. I want the photographs of you, your families and friends having a brilliant time, If they happen to be playing in a band then that’s ok. We want photographs that make you smile.

The competition is now closed for this year and the entries are with the judges from all the community groups to select the top 30 which will be framed and dispayed at the Band Club so the public vote can take place throughout September and November.

Then at the Christmas Carol Concert (should the current crisis permit) we can have a awards ceremony in the break and present the winners with certificates and prizes.

If you need any further information then please contact us via email to
