Calling all LB Photographers!
We are excited to announce the launch of our first ever photography contest! We’re asking all of our young LB supporters to submit their favourite photo of themselves competing in a sport or activity of their choice to help support our ‘Move more, be more’ message. Not only will you have your photo displayed on our website, but you will also have the chance to win a visit with Alex Dowsett and your very own Alex Dowsett cycling kit!
The winning photo will be chosen by a panel of judges including Alex, Wil Woan, LB Director, Benedict Campbell, Photographer, Nicola Hubert, Physiotherapist and LB young ambassador Harry.
“What I will be looking for in the photos are whether the young people are able to capture the spirit and joy that they feel when participating in their favourite activity, the feelings captured are the most important elements of a great photo.” said Benedict.
With this competition, open to young people who live with haemophilia, we hope to raise awareness of blood disorders in young people and to spread the word that our LB supporters don’t let their disorder hold them back from achieving great things through sport.
“We’re excited to get our LB supporters involved in this competition. We hope to spread the message that being diagnosed with haemophilia doesn’t mean that you have to stay clear of all sports and activities.” said Wil. “Our key Little Bleeders message is that these young people can have a full and active future.”
The competition starts today, 17 April and will close 1 May with winners being announced on 19 May. Participating photographers are asked to submit their photos to our email (email@example.com).
“I’m so excited to see what the photos look like!” said Harry, “I’m sure there will be some really exciting shots of kids doing some really cool sports!”
Alex will also be submitting a photo of his own to provide some inspiration, “As everyone knows I’m a big supporter of young people with haemophilia getting out there and having fun.” said Alex, “I want to encourage these children to go after their passion and stay active because the disorder is only a stepping stone, not a barrier to achieving great things.” Keep an eye on our Facebook page for Alex’s photo.
