The Search Is On...


This years’ search is on to find the next Face of The Cheltonian and we are looking for real people, from Cheltenham to feature in the magazine.

Our first photo shoot took place on Sunday 21st August and saw a great variety of people turn up to have their photo taken. With five age categories this is a competition that is open to everyone. Here are the age categories:

Under 12

12-18 years

18-30 years

30-50 years

50+ years

So, whether your four-year-old is a model in the making or you’re looking better than ever in retirement we want you to take part.

If you have been into the Beechwood Shopping Centre recently you may of noticed our former winners faces smiling back at you. These cover stars are real Cheltonian’s and you could be one next year!

To enter simply fill in the form and head down to the Beechwood Shopping Centre on Saturday 24th September or Saturday 15th October between 2pm – 5pm to have your photo taken. We have a brilliant photographer called John from Two Front Teeth Photography who will be snapping from his makeshift studio on the day.

The photo from this day will then go into the magazine, along with a voting line and the public will decide who will win a photo shoot and trophy.

There will also be an overall winner who will receive a special prize that will be determined by their age category; we don’t think under 12s are too fond of spa days! We hope to see you on Saturday 24th September 2011.

Registering your vote(s) couldn’t be simpler. Simply select your favourite photo(s) from those over the following pages and text the reference to: 60777 with the word ‘FACE’.

For example text ‘FACE 1234’ to 60777.

Texts cost £1 each plus normal network charges. Closing date: 31st August 2011 (midnight).

Votes after this date will not be counted but may still be charged. Photography by John Moore, Two Front Teeth.
