A photo competition has been launched to celebrate everything that’s great about East Dulwich. Open to all ages and abilities, local residents and lovers of East Dulwich are invited to submit their favourite snaps along with up to 240 characters about why their photo captures the spirit of SE22.

Up to 15 winning photos will be picked by an independent judging panel to form an outdoor exhibition this summer. The exhibition will be hosted on a route stretching from East Dulwich station down Lordship Lane.

Entering the competition is quick and easy with four ways to submit a photo:

  1. Post it on Instagram, and include #MEandED @LoveEastD in the photo caption.
  2. Post the photo on the MEandED Facebook page and including #MEandED @LoveEastD in the photo caption
  3. Email the photo to eastdagroup@gmail.com
  4. Entries can also be posted or delivered in person to ED, 41 North Cross Road, East Dulwich, SE22 9ET.

Sharing the love for East Dulwich is absolutely encouraged on social media using #MEandED and @LoveEastD, and the deadline for photo submissions is 5pm on Friday 15 June.

Funded by a grant from the London Borough of Southwark, the project has the backing of Southwark Council, Dulwich Festival, Dulwich Outdoor Gallery, local schools, residents and businesses.
