Entries are open for The Herald Bride and Groom 2011.

Couples who were married in 2011 may send bridal entries to the following e-mail address: [email protected]

Further information: The Herald marketing assistant Deirdre Brand Tel: 041-504 7494 Email: [email protected]



WHO MAY ENTER?

Entrants must have been married any time between January 1 to December 31, 2011, and live in The Herald circulation area. They may marry elsewhere, but have to live in our region.

Entrants have until early next year to submit their photographs. There is no age limit and it may be a second marriage.


WHAT SORT OF PHOTOGRAPH IS SUITABLE?

We only need one photo per couple, showing your faces clearly. We are looking for a couple with a special sparkle, who are attractive but not necessarily beautiful and who look radiant and happy on their wedding day. Due to our space restrictions, a close up is more likely to be used than one that shows more background detail.

A colour photograph is preferable. Photographs may be in print or digital format, and the latter may be submitted electronically. Prints are not returned so make sure you don’t send in your only copy.

WHAT INFORMATION MUST WE SUPPLY?

We need the following information: bride and groom’s first and second names (including the bride’s maiden name), home address, daytime contact phone numbers, date and place of wedding. The photographer’s name is optional but most photographers do appreciate it if you can include this. Family details are optional.

WILL MY PICTURE BE PUBLISHED IN THE HERALD?

The Herald will carry a selection of entrants photographs as and when space permits. Only a small percentage of the entrants will have their photograph published, and entering the competition does not guarantee publication in the paper.

WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?

Prizes will be given to the top 12 couples selected, with the winner having the best prize package.
The winning bride and groom are invited to model their wedding outfits at The Herald’s La Femme Bridal Fair, which traditionally takes place the last weekend of May.

HOW IS THE COMPETITION JUDGED?

Judging will cover all entries the entire year, so every entrant has the same chance. Not only published pictures are eligible, but every entrant.

All photographs received by the closing date early in 2011 (to be announced later in the year) will go through an initial sifting to 50 semi-finalists. This will then be narrowed down to 12 finalists to be invited to a cocktail party for final judging.


WHEN DO WE HEAR WHO WON?

Keep an eye on your copy of The Herald to see who the 12 finalists are.

WHERE DO I SEND MY ENTRY?

Post to: The Herald Bride and Groom 2011, Private Bag X 6071, Port Elizabeth 6000 or deliver at: Newspaper House, 19 Baakens Street, Central, Port Elizabeth.

E-mail: [email protected], with “The Herald Bride and Groom 2011” in the subject field. Please do not send files larger than 1Mb.
