CHILDLINE is encouraging youth groups in Fife to enter its ‘picture this’ photography competition and win up to £1000 to spend on equipment of their choice.

To enter, groups need to take an imaginative photograph of themselves which celebrates the helpline’s 25th birthday and submit it to ChildLine before the closing date of October 31.

By making a suggested voluntary donation of £2 for every child in the photo, competition entrants can help ensure ChildLine continues to be there for children in danger or distress throughout Scotland.

The competition will be judged by internationally renowned Scottish photographer Colin Prior, Karen Blair, social leadership analyst, first direct and Linda McClelland, PlayFair education co-ordinator, National Galleries of Scotland.

There are two age categories 11 and under and ages 12-18. To find out more about the competition, visit www.nspcc.org.uk/picturethis.
