Enter our 'Living your best life' tenant competition

Living your best life!

We’ve been supporting our communities since 1994, and to celebrate our 30th anniversary, we’re holding an exciting creative competition with the theme: “Living your best life”. 

Whether you love crafting, sewing, knitting, baking or making, writing poems, or taking photos, this competition is for you.  

Show us with your creative ideas, photography, or poetry and why you think your home or your community is special. It might be getting together with friends and family, playing sports, volunteering with neighbours to help those who need it most, enjoying nature in your garden, walking in the local park – or simply the view from your window that inspires you. The list is endless, it is what makes you feel creative that’s important. 

Don’t be shy, now is the time to express yourself and have some fun! 

There are three categories to enter:  

  • Photography
  • Poetry
  • Creative work (not just art, this includes any kind of craft, baking or making things!)

Tempted to enter? Go on, have a go! You never know you might win a prize and have your work exhibited at various locations within our communities. 

Each category will have a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize.  

1st prize – £30 multi-shopping voucher 

2nd prize - £20 multi-shopping voucher 

3rd prize - £15 multi-shopping voucher 

This competition is open to Progress Housing Group tenants and supported living (RWP) tenants. 

Our judging panel will select a winner in each category and second and third place in each of the three categories. 

The closing date for entries is midnight Sunday, 22 September 2024.
