IF you think you can match this shot's success in capturing Croydon, then a new photo contest might be for you. Centrale Shopping Centre is holding a photo contest to celebrate Croydon, running alongside the three-week festival of the borough's heritage that started today (June 3). Entries for the 'Capturing Croydon With Centrale Competition' can be old or new photos and will be exhibited in the shopping centre from June 17. The top prize is a £300 Centrale gift card, while two runners up will also each receive a £100 gift card. Sony Mistou, Centrale's marketing manager, said: "When we heard about the festival we knew instantly that we wanted to get involved as it is such a great idea to bring the community together and celebrate the town we live in. "We are all very excited to see the entries and we welcome everyone to visit our exhibition at the centre." The Croydon Heritage Festival, organised by the Whitgift Foundation, will run until June 23, featuring events including exhibitions and live shows across town. Photo entries should be sent to email@example.com or by post to Capturing Croydon Competition, c/o Beth Healey, Centrale Shopping Centre, 21 North End, Croydon, CR0 1TY. Entries will also be accepted via the Centrale social media pages on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Images must be received before midnight on Friday June 14.
