Great competition, but only if you're quick!!

Hi guys,
.
When I got sent details of this great competition, I knew I had to share it with you, despite the deadline being this Monday!!
.
Jimmy Choo and Elton John AIDS Foundation have launched a photo competition to support the launch of Project PEP, a charity collection that donates 25% of sales to the Simelela Rape Centre in South Africa . The money goes towards providing the HIV-preventative treatment PEP (which must be taken within 72 hours of exposure to HIV) and counselling to victims of rape in South Africa, which has the highest count of rape in the world.
.
The theme of the photo competition is "You, your shoes, and 72". Here are some of my favourite entries so far:
Those who submit their entries before 26th October will be shortlisted for an exhibition at the celebrity launch event at Selfridges London on 29th October. On this night Tamara Mellon will launch the ‘PEP-Up Shop’ at Selfridges, which will display the Project PEP collection and the selected photo entries for 72 hours thereafter.
.
The overall winners will be announced after the competition close on 7th December. On offer is a Grand Prize of the ultimate Jimmy Choo VIP experience – the winner will be invited to spend a day of luxury and the Jimmy Choo HQ and choose 7 pairs of shoes and 2 handbags to keep. Plus over 100 exclusive Jimmy Choo prizes will also be awarded.
.
An amazing prize for an amazing, and very worthwhile competition. If I had any kind of talent for photography at all, I would definitely be planning out an entry- why not give it a go!?
.
Love, Tor xx
