Those expecting entries for our Big Damn Painting Competition to appear on the site and our Facebook page are going to have to wait a little longer. We’ve already had some cracking entries come through but we’ve also had a few people say that they didn’t have enough time to finish their entries for the given deadline, or they were asking if they could submit them a day or two late.
Whilst allowing late submissions isn’t fair on those that got them in on time, we want as many people to be in a with a chance of winning as possible. So, with that in mind, we’ve decided to extend the submission deadline by a week.
All the information and rules for the painting competition remain the same other than the amended closing and voting dates below and can be found here.
So the new closing date is the 14th April at midday UK time. Voting will open on the 15th here and on our Facebook page and will remain open until the 22nd after which point a winner and the two runners-up will be announced.
We hope this allows those worried they’d miss out to finish their entries and get the pictures over to us.
