A new photography competition is being launched in London to promote love, diversity, and positivity.
Love In London 2020, founded by London-based startup CLiKD Dating App as part of its mission to help people find love in the capital, is raising money for leading relationships charity Relate and is being supported by main media partners Time Out.
First established in 2018, Love In London looks to continue its mission of spreading love and positivity on an even bigger scale for 2020. The original competition was a worldwide success, with Scott Hamiltion’s winning photo “Snuggle” being seen in publications across 15 different countries, as well as on billboards and digital advertising screens across London.
The competition has six categories: Love London, Love Your Community, Love Your Partner, Love Your Pets, Love Your Friends and Love What You Do. New for 2020 is a video category that encourages videographers interested in any of the categories to send in a short video (no more than one minute long).
All competition entry donations will go to Relate a charity that provides counselling and guidance to people in all types of relationships.
There are up to £5000 worth of prizes on offer, with winning photos set to be displayed on London billboards. The competition closes on the 3rd March with applicants encouraged to enter via the Love In London website.
Commenting on the competition, founder and CEO of CLiKD Michael Blakeley, said: “It’s fantastic to be organising a competition for such an important cause. Relate is an incredible charity that does fantastic work and we’re very excited to raise awareness of that through such a love-centric competition.
“Love is something that brings everyone together and to help display the best of Love In London is a fantastic privilege.”
Aidan Jones, CEO of Relate, added: “I’m delighted that Relate is the charity partner of this year’s Love in London competition. As well as celebrating the importance of love in its many different forms, the initiative will also help us to continue supporting the nation’s relationships throughout 2020.”
