What brings you hope?
We are on the search for the perfect photograph which signifies giving hope.
This does not have to be related to East Anglian Air Ambulance directly, but can capture any image, sign or feeling which to you signifies giving hope. Whether someone has inspired you recently, something has affected you positively or you’ve seen something that has made you smile, we would love to see your ideas and entries.
These can be captured on a phone or a professional camera, with judges simply looking for creativity.
Bonus points will be awarded to those who subtly link the photo back to EAAA. For example, using the colour yellow to signify our helicopters and cars!
The winning photograph will be featured at the charity’s new Norwich base as part of its first open day and photo exhibition on 6 November 2021. The new base, funded by years of gifts in Wills from our generous supporters, has enabled the charity to expand its operation to a 24/7 service by air and road. The photo exhibition will showcase 24 hours on shift and follow our operation throughout the day and night, as we are tasked to patients who need us most.
Winner's prize: Go Pro Hero 8
Runner up prize: Professional family portrait voucher, kindly provided by Dion Gallichan Photography (based in Ely)
