'My Liverpool' competition

Hello again,

Well, I said that we would keep you updated about the competition and there is some great news.  The first 'People's Stories: Liverpool Lives' competition will be launching on Monday 25th April.  The theme for the competition will be 'My Liverpool'.

More details will be heading your way over the next few days, such as explaining the theme more and giving details on voting.  I just wanted to keep you all up to date.

If that wasn't enough to have you looking forward to Monday then I have managed to get you all a sneak peek at the prize for the competition (from Real Camera):

It's a traditional film camera that will have you taking great photographs in no time!

Once again, make sure to keep your eyes on the 'People's Stories' website itself and our social network sites (Facebook and Twitter) for the latest news.  We are all looking forward to seeing your competition entries when the time arrives.


Dates and sunshine

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed the sunshine.  It looks like we will be having more heading our way throughout the week so I've got my shorts at the ready.  Spirits are high in the office today after a good footballing weekend as well, not to mention the fantastic Grand Prix.

The first 'People's Stories' competition will be on its way as soon as everything is ready, so apologies for the delay in providing more details.  You will all be the first to know when the new start date is announced and I will try to give you a sneak peek at the prize too.

Well, I hope you all enjoy the upcoming week of sunshine.  Don't forget to gather your favourite photographs for the upcoming competition.  The theme will be announced later today.

The good weekend...

Good morning,

I hope you all enjoyed the sunshine over the weekend.  It really was hot and the temperature just seemed to rise throughout the day on both Saturday and Sunday.  Then there was of course the Grand National.  It was a terrific race and some of us here at Hurricane HQ ran out winning some money, which never hurts.  Of course there was also bad news at the National.  Ornais and Dooneys Gate both died on the day and our thoughts go out to the horses and all involved with them.

When it comes to 'People's Stories' there is a lot going on right now.  We are currently putting the finishing details into the upcoming competition, which will hopefully be heading your way next Monday (18th).  Keep your eyes on the website and the social pages (Facebook and Twitter) as hopefully further news will be heading your way either today or tomorrow.

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and that the week ahead is a good one for you.
