One of the things we’ve been talking about for months in terms of both raising funds and awareness has been the ‘HS2 Calendar of Destruction’. The problem holding us back has been that we were never sure if following party conferences we’d actually have the money to pay for the initial stock. The answer at the moment is no, we don’t. But what we do have three weeks before we have to go to print, so we have decided to go ahead with the photo competition anyway, and when we’ve got the photos in, we might hopefully have the money.
The rules are simple, we want photos of things that will not be there if HS2 goes ahead, throughout ‘HS2 Land’, the photos must be landscape format and we need them by 12 noon on Friday October 21st. You must be able to tell us exactly where the photo was taken and where HS2 will go within the photo if it goes ahead. The photos can be of anything: buildings (inside or out), landscapes, sporting events and activities etc. We specifically would like photos from the Battle of Edgcote re-enactment, sporting matches, the bonfires from February on the line and the inside of one of the factories set to be demolished. We will make all efforts to spread the photos used across the length of the first proposed stage of HS2.
Please email photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to Stop HS2 129-131 Warwick Rd, Kenilworth, to arrive no later than Friday October 21st.
