Reader Photo Contest: Dumped in Paradise

PHUKET: We want to know the story behind your trashy pictures… and we’ll reward you for it.

The Phuket Gazette is proud to announce the launch of ‘Dumped in Paradise’ – an eight-week competition where we are calling on you to help get Phuket out of the trash can.

The procedure is simple:

Step 1: Take a photo of waylaid garbage you have seen anywhere on the island and ‘pin it’ to get a GPS location. Send it in a message to the Phuket Gazette Facebook page or Don’t forget to provide us with the location and any other details you have.

Step 2: Garner as many likes for your photo as you can once it’s put on our Facebook page. The picture with the most likes by midnight every Sunday will be short listed as the weekly winner.

If it makes the short list, we’ll call the local municipality to dig deeper into why such a pile of rubbish is soiling our beautiful island, and publish the story in the following week’s issue of the Gazette.

Step 3: At the end of the eight-week competition, the weekly winners will go toe-to-toe. Whoever racks up the most likes on Facebook will receive a beautiful piece of junk-art made by one of Phuket’s own.

Good luck to all Gazette readers. Send us those trashy photos… let’s get clicking!
