SNAP Cymru Photo and Family Story Contest

We would like to announce the launch of the new SNAP Cymru Photo and Family story Contest!

CONTEST OPEN FROM Oct 10 to November 10th 2015

SNAP Cymru has recently been told that our website is going to be preserved by the UK Web Archive which is a partnership between the National Library of Wales, the British Library, and the National Library of Scotland, to preserve website for future users. They have identified our web site as an important part of Wales’ documentary heritage and would like it to remain available to researchers and families in the future.  The archived copy of your web site will form part of their permanent collections.

So here’s the fun bit!

We are looking to hear from families who have been helped by SNAP Cymru. Sharing personal experiences is a really useful way for parents and families to help each other. Case studies are vital in helping SNAP Cymru; they help raise awareness so we can continue to provide even more support, advice and information to the families we help and also reach out to help even more families. During these hard times, especially with changes to the education system, our help is needed by more families than ever. We’re looking for some of your stories and photos to share to help raise awareness of the work we do.

We would like you to write a short story about your experiences and how SNAP Cymru helped you and your child.

No story would be complete without a photo or two. The photographs will need to be high quality photographs from a digital camera.

Tip: if your child would like to write to us about how they felt and how we helped them, it would be warmly welcomed as we love the personal touch.)

CASH AND PRIZES will be awarded after the final selection of winners has been made on December 1st 2015.

Winning stories and images:

  • Will be featured in the UK Web Archive and intranet
  • Results will be shared on our social media outlets and on our website under the news section.
  • No names or other personal information will be included in any captions without your explicit consent (substitute names can be used)
  • The images will not be used for any reason other than the ones stated above

We will be adding 6 stories to our website, so we wish you all the best of luck. Every story published will be given tokens or a monetary prize and more importantly help encourage other families. Remember your story and photograph will be preserved in history!

To submit your story send it to training@snapcymru.or with subject Family Story Contest. Please also complete our Consent form and send that with your email in order to be eligible.
