Win £100 by simply sharing your COVID-19 Safe photos

A competition has been launched challenging Hull residents to take photographs of themselves or their family members being COVID-19 safe this summer.

Photos can be taken at home, in the garden, or out and about in your neighbourhood, your local park or even in the city centre. The most important thing is that you must do it safely and in line with latest guidance here.

Winners will receive as much as £100 in High Street shopping vouchers.

Possible ideas may include photos of you or your family wearing facemasks, social distancing, shopping responsibly, washing your hands, using hand sanitiser or even being tested for COVID-19. Be creative and there is no limit to the number of entries you can submit.
