Have you seen the Crosspool well dressing boards?

Have you seen the Crosspool well dressing boards?

Last year’s well dressing helpers are being asked to check their garages and garden huts as we are not sure where they were stored after the 2017 festival.

If you have any information please get in touch with Crosspool Forum using or 07713 687 955.

Enter the 2018 Crosspool Festival photo competition!

The theme of this year’s photo competition is the contribution of women in the world. Your entry could include a portrait picture of a mother, sister, or inspiring friend, or someone you look up to and admire.

We don’t just want portraits, though. Your entry could, for example, reflect one or more of the colours and values of the Suffragettes. These were purple which symbolised dignity, white for purity and green which symbolised hope.

You can interpret the theme in any way you like but remember, the photo should make an impact and tell a story.

How to enter

Categories are open to anyone living/working/studying in the area and are as follows:

  • Primary (5-11 yrs)
  • Secondary (12-18 yrs)
  • Adult (19 yrs+)

Closing date for entries is Monday 11 June.

Email your photo as a jpg to:

Please state:

  • Your name
  • Age category
  • Your contact email and phone number
  • A caption for your photo so the judges clearly understand by your description what is happening in the photo.

There will be prizes for all the category winners and their photo framed. The winner’s photo could also be included in the Crosspool Calendar.

The public select the winning photographs.

The shortlisted best three in each category will be put on the Crosspool Forum website and voting for the winners will start from Friday 15 June and close on Monday 2 July.

The exhibition at St Columba’s will display all the entries on Wednesday 4 July from 2-4.30pm. You can also meet photographers from Sheffield Photographic Society, see their photos on display and ask them your photo questions.

The winners will be announced at St Columba’s on Wednesday 4 July at 4pm. Tea and  coffee will be provided by St Columba’s.

The prizes will be awarded at the Summer Fayre on Saturday 7 July.
