Positive message campaign deadline extended


The deadline for the Young People's Benchmarking Forum (YPBMF) 'Positive Message' Flickr campaign has been extended until 19 October 2012.

The aim is to collect 1,000 creative and positive photos about working with young people making the transition from care to adulthood, in support of Care Leaver's week 2012 (24-30 October).

The best three photos will receive a £100, £50 or £25 Love2shop voucher.

The flickr project is the second stage of the ‘positive message’ campaign. A balloon release took place during Care Leaver’s week in 2011, with 12 local authorities releasing up to 100 biodegradable balloons with positive messages attached to them.

The Young People’s Benchmarking Forum is calling for care leavers to:

  • think of a positive message about their achievements, aspirations or goals
  • find a creative way of taking a picture of that message while respecting everyone’s right to privacy (no pictures of names or faces)
  • send the photo/s to by 19 October.

Photos will be monitored and pictures that do not respect everyone’s right to privacy, including revealing names or faces, will not be accepted. Photos could be of a painting or drawing, written messages or famous landmarks, for example.
