”Capture your town in photographs” contest (Wigan!)

Passing this on in case anyone is interested (and qualifies!)


As you may know, Wigan has been twinned with Angers (in the North-west part of France) for nearly 30 years.

The Twinning Association in Angers is launching a new and exciting contest which might be of great interest to your young members (18 – 30 YO).

The winner will have the pleasure to get an ALL EXPENSES PAID trip to the beautiful city of Angers to present his/her work and visit his twin town.

The principle is to tell a story about the town of Wigan in either 10 pictures or one video – you will find attached the rules of the contest.

If you know any members between 18 and 30 years old, an amateur protographer and/or videomaker, feel free to spread the word.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to visit one of the loveliest French cities!

For more information, please visit the facebook page of the contest :
