All About Our Facebook Competition

What The Saints Did Next was launched in two stages, first our Facebook Page on 8 October 2014, followed by the website/blog itself which went live on 10 January, 2015. So we sort of have two birthdays!

To celebrate our Facebook birthdays we hold a photography competition for our followers – What The Saints Did Next is all about photography after all. We choose the theme then post all pictures that are submitted and visitors become the judges by clicking the ‘Like’ button on their favourites. The three pictures with the most ‘Likes’ will win fab prizes of St Helena t-shirts. Simples.

Basic rules: Max 3 entries per person, short photo caption/description and date of capture required, photographs only from 8 Oct 2016 – 8 Oct 2017 and nothing naughty. Photographer’s name will be published.
