About

How do you see Faversham Creek?
Take a picture – Draw a picture – Dig out an old picture… and tell us about it!


***THE CURRENT STAGE OF PICTURE THE CREEK HAS ENDED – WATCH THIS SPACE FOR FUTURE NEWS***

We asked  people young and old to share their views of Faversham Creek. This is community project designed as a form of public consultation to gather residents’ view about the Creek and help shape its future.

You can take a photograph or send one you’ve already got – maybe one from long ago. Or you can draw or paint a picture and scan it or photograph it.

Most importantly: tell us something about it:

  • What does it show?
  • Something you like, something you don’t like?
  • Something that caught your eye or made you curious?
  • Something you’d like to see more of, or less of?
  • Something that brings back memories, makes you angry, makes you laugh, makes you sad?

Your pictures will be shared on this website, on social media platforms and at an exhibition at the Purifier Building in Faversham on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th November 2014.

***SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED***

PRIZES

This isn’t an ordinary photo competition. It’s not about how “good” the pictures are, it’s about the stories they tell. You don’t need an expensive camera. You can use a simple pocket camera or a phone.

But there will be prizes for the most interesting and original images.

  • First prize: £50
  • Second prize: £25
  • Third prize: £15
