Last Chance To Vote.

Lines close 25th August crack

Well here they are, all the entrants... and August represents your last chance to vote for your favourite(s) as lines close at midnight on the 25th August!

So far it’s been extremely close in every single category. In fact no more than 12 votes separate the top three in each category, and one category only has 2 votes between the top three as second place is currently tied!

So pick your favourite(s) and text your votes as it’s going to be close! It’s by no means done and dusted, there are no clear winners yet!

How to vote
On the following pages you will see all of the entrants. To register your vote(s) simply look through them and select your favourite(s). Make a note of the image reference and text it to 6077.

i.e. Text: ‘Face 1234’ to 6077. Don’t forget to include the space between the word ‘Face’ and the number of the image. You will receive an acknowledgement text back stating that your vote has been received. Each text vote will cost £1 plus your normal network fee. (Pay as you go votes will be cancelled by the provider if you have insufficient credit.)

Closing Date
The closing date for voting is the 25th
August 2010 at midnight. Text votes sent after this date will not be counted. (But may still be charged.)

Winners’ Awards Ceremony
Winners will be announced in our September edition and there will be a special awards ceremony held in the Beechwood Shopping Centre on Saturday 25th September at midday.

The prizes
The winners from each category will be invited to attend a professional photo-shoot by John Moore of ‘Two Front Teeth Portrait Photography’ at his studio. John is a renowned photographer and has photographed many celebrities including the likes of Patrick Moore, Mike Read, Emperor Rosko, Felicity Montage (from Bridget Jones Diary) and Alan Partridge. He also regularly works for Brian May and Roger Taylor from the band Queen.

All of the winners will also be treated to a special ‘winners’ dinner’ at Joules Restaurant and, where appropriate, each winner will receive professional hair styling, make-up and wardrobe for the day.

The main sponsors
Without the help and generosity of many businesses throughout the town this competition would not have been possible. Very special thanks go to all of our sponsors, some of whom have not yet been mentioned, but special recognition has to be given to...

Beechwood Shopping Centre
Owen Acland the Centre Manager and Rose Hyde the Marketing Manager. Unprecedented levels of support and enthusiasm. So much so that we will run the competition again next year!

Cheltenham Dental Spa And Implant Clinic
Special thanks also to Dr. Ghaleb Karein for his generous support which involved taking care of all of the posters, leaflets and entry forms. You will be hearing more about Dr. Karein in the near future when we commence a new regular oral health feature.

Severn Signs
Rob Wallace who took care of the spectacular shop graphics in the Beechwood Shopping centre and who has now just updated them all.
For supplying the voting lines without any long-term contracts and for waiving all the set-up fees.
