#mysweetart Competition ***Win a 30″ Canvas***

It seems as if all the beautiful people are getting loved up this year. William and Kate, Kate and Jamie, Zara and Mike, Michael and Luisana… the wedding list goes on.


Those lovely couples will have access to some fabulous photography to capture their love for posterity. But there’s lots more adoration in the world and we’d like to celebrate it with you!

Which is where #mysweetart comes in. We’d set up a Flickr group to celebrate love and happiness. And now we’ve decided to give away a 30″ canvas to one winner on Flickr, who in our opinion has uploaded the sweetest picture of a person, pet, place or possession they love. The winning upload will be commemorated on the canvas. So if you enter, make sure you upload a picture of something you’d be happy seeing on your wall for many moons…

How to enter

  1. Take a picture of yourself with someone or something you love – your spouse, fiancee, pet, golf clubs, mirror and so on…
  2. Check picture for general gorgeousness; it should be the sort of thing your mum would approve of.
  3. Please make sure you have your loved one’s consent or authority to use the picture first. (The golf clubs may not complain but your wife or brother might.)
  4. Post your photo to our Flickr #mysweetart group. Bear in mind this is an open group, so anyone can see the pictures that have been uploaded. You can enter as many shots as you want, but there will only be one winner.
  5. Wait for the big announcement in June to see if you’re our winner.

The rules

  1. The competition is open to UK residents. Entries will be accepted from 26 May until 10 June 2011. Pictures received after 10 June won’t count towards the contest but feel free to keep uploading!
  2. Competition entrants must only submit photos that they have taken themselves and own the rights to. These can be existing online images or pictures that have been entered into other contests, as long as you can prove ownership of the shot.
  3. You must make sure that anyone in your picture(s) has given consent to having their picture uploaded. If any children are included, the responsible parent or guardian must have given their authority for the picture to be submitted.
  4. By entering, you agree that any images uploaded to the #mysweetart Flickr group can be posted on or linked to from the Marler Haley web page, blog and social media. Please note, online photos can be copied by other people viewing the photo and Marler Haley cannot accept any liabilities for any damages that may arise.
  5. There is one prize of a 30” square canvas using the best image uploaded to the group by the competition winner. Marler Haley will arrange production of the canvas and mailing to the winner. No cash alternative is available.
  6. Within seven days of the closing date, Marler Haley will pick one winner which, in its own judgement, best represents the theme ‘mysweetart’ – love is the order of the day. The judging decision is final; no correspondence will be entered into.
  7. Marler Haley will notify the winner via Flickr by 17 June. If the potential winner can’t be contacted within 10 days of first trying, another winner will be chosen.
  8. The winner will be asked to supply their winning picture to the best possible quality, so that it can be printed onto canvas. If an image is not of a high enough quality, this may affect the quality of output; ideally a high-resolution jpeg will work best. Marler Haley will advise the winner if we think image quality may affect the final result, but we can’t be held responsible if a low-resolution image doesn’t work as well.
  9. No entry fee or purchase is required to take part in this competition.
  10. Taking part in the competition means you accept the terms of these rules and agree to be bound by them. If you don’t comply, we may disqualify you from the contest.
  11. Marler Haley reserves the right to disqualify anyone who breaches these rules, or breaks Flickr, Twitter or Facebook rules.
  12. In taking part, entrants agree to comply with and be bound by the decisions of Marler Haley, which shall be final and binding in all respects, including interpretation of these rules and choosing the winner.
  13. As a condition of entry, the winner must consent to have their name and that of their loved one(s), plus their winning picture, published by Marler Haley for trade, advertising, marketing, promotional activity and/or any other purpose in media either now or in the future – without any compensation, consideration, permission or notification except where prohibited by law.
  14. No correspondence will be entered into regarding either this promotion or the official competition rules. In the event of any dispute, Marler Haley’s decision shall be final.
  15. Marler Haley reserves the right to amend, modify, cancel or withdraw this competition at any time without notice.
