June 26, 2023

*Entry deadline extended*

To celebrate Get Living’s 10th birthday, we’re launching a photography competition and giving away up to £1,500 worth of prizes.

This summer, we’re inviting our residents and Instagram followers to explore their neighbourhood and capture an image that represents what “belonging” means to them.

To be in with a chance of making the top 10, follow these simple steps and submit your entry by 20 July 2023.

  1.  Follow @wearegetliving on Instagram
  2.  Take a photo in your neighbourhood which you feel best represents “belonging”
  3. Upload your image to your public Instagram feed tagging @wearegetliving and using the campaign hashtag #WhereWeBelong

Photos must be taken at one of Get Living’s neighbourhoods in London and Manchester: East Village, Elephant Central and New Maker Yards.

The competition closes on 20 July, all entries will then be submitted to a panel of judges who will pick the top 10 finalists who will each win £100 to spend with Virgin Experience Days, Get Living’s brand partner.

Winners can choose from thousands of experiences and days out across the UK. From river cruises to fine dining, walking with Alpacas and glamping – it’s the greatest gift of creating new memories.

Of the top 10 winning entries, an overall winner will then be selected by a People’s Choice vote on 24 July.

They’ll receive additional £300 voucher, plus an Instax camera and film to use on their adventures.
