As someone who took part in the competition, and as one of the winners, it’s really sad to see such unecessery negativity for something that is meant to be a light-hearted, photographic collaboration of everyone’s passion of East Dulwich & photography. As one of the people actually involved in the competition, I haven’t felt let down or left in the dark about the exhibition by the organisers, and unsure where this animosity has stemmed from. I want to personally thank the organisers and judges for taking their time putting this together, it’s been a pleasure and has been a wonderful thing to be part of!

"Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain – and most fools do"

If you slag them off enough then you'll put others off...

"I'm not even going to try that good/fun/community thing in East Dulwich, I remember some people tried to do something a bit creative and community minded once and they got shot down on that forum. I'm going to take the safe options and watch Strictly Love Jungle repeats instead".

Seriously though I hope most people can see through the spitefulness hurled at the organisers of a local photo competition for what it is, a bit like shooting fish in a barrel. I think they tried, they succeeded but it was a bit bumpy along the way and I'm sure (I hope) they'll do it again with a few improved tweaks.

Edag might have been trying, used in the "loosest" terms for the community, can I suggest you look back to last year and how they he/treated people who dared comment on their inability to meet their own deadlines. He was scathing at the time and now he expects everyone to say what a great job he/they did. Well, others may think so, but personally I think you let a lot of people down.

They have now finally announced their chosen winners, and I have to admit it must have been difficult based on the entries they had. Indeed it must have been like shooting fish in a barrel with all that choice.

Ron - I am not trying to "tear it down", just exposing the organisers for what they are, getting public funds and not delivering what was supposed to be delivered when it was supposed to be done.

Hannah Morris - well done for having taken part and if you haven't felt let down, well that's good

Mark - it is not spitefulness by any means. If you are happy with edag and co expecting everyone to go yipee, didn't we do a great job, well that's your choice, I think not.

Oh and an exhibition of the works that was supposed to last a week lasted a day, plus edag making it like a fishing trip to find and see all the entries and then saying they were on instagram from the start. Well if you had told people, they could have seen all the entries but he didn't. Try Communication, Communication, Communication or should that be Education, Education, Education!!!!!!

Simply put, the results are six months late, no excuse, no apology, no explanation as to why and these are supposed business people running the thing. Gives you little if any faith in their ability, I hope the sponsors look at the lessons learnt if the whole episode is ever repeated.

wow, what a lot of umbrage taken and given!

I wasn't aware of this competition until i saw the photos in the latest Dulwich Diverter and thought i'd check the forum (for the first time in ages) for some background

i really liked the pictures, especially the portrait of our local street cleaner and the ones of the ducks and the jumping fox cub. Most of the locations are recognisably ED, and i'm looking forward to seeing the street banners in due course
Looking at your website, looks like you've got some good stuff planned

BUT - who are you, EDAG?
i'm very curious about who the "volunteers comprising of (sic) East Dulwich businesses, market traders and residents" are - there's no info on your website!

Are the "banners mounted throughout the village, appearing in January 2019" still going ahead for this project?

messageRe: East Dulwich "Me & ED" Photo Competiton - The Winners
Posted by eastDAG February 18, 01:40PM

Absolutely Abe. We needed to wait for the Xmas lights and electrics to be decommissioned, and some structural testing to be completed, but the winning shots look fantastic at scale and they are at print right now. They will be mounted very shortly.

Hi Goldilocks
All print elements were signed off by Southwark's brand integrity team and providing we can secure a slot, we hope they'll be hung next week.

Hi Hannah
EVERYWHERE! I've attached the location sheet for you.
Every winning shot appears on Lordship Lane, from the station to the library, at least once. Then there are a spread of winning shots throughout East Dulwich.
Let us know what you think when you see them!

They’re not small Vic. They’re just far away (ahhh, we miss Father Ted!!)
And the reason they are up high is because face height lamppost banners are a health and safety hazard.

But all feedback is good feedback. Thanks.

Just a bit of lighthearted humour D.
AND showing great taste in tv.

Factually though, the banners are 2.2m x 750mm, which is the standard size across Southwark and lots of the UK. This format, with the coloured footers means the images aren’t TOO cropped, which we think works. Any taller and the images could be too cropped, and the printing would be more expensive.
We’re very happy with the end result and it was lovely walking down Lordship Lane seeing all the winning shots.
Other than the size and height, do you have a favourite shot Vic?

Again, all feedback is welcome, and thanks for taking the time.

Your posts yesterday and today are personal attacks on me, no one has behaved like this towards me in the 10 Plus years I've posted on this forum. I realsied that what I had posted on 11 March was inappropriate and so I deleted that post. But you thought you'd take things one step further. I have not been rude to you personally in any way, yet you think its OK to use my name which I kept private and which I had the right to do, rather than my username. You also think it's OK not to respond to the PM's I sent you and answer them publicly on the forum. So stop hiding behind the east DAG username.

I started posting about your photo competition because of the amount of disorganisation which was apparent, that must have touched a very raw nerve. The East DAG username represents the east dulwich action group, and as such you should respond as an organisation, not individually or make it personal. It looks like east DAG seem unable to take the rightful criticism I levelled at them about how things were being run.

Clearly you are now trying to force me to terminate my forum account when you've only posted here for a year, thanks for that.

Hi D
Your name is on your EDF profile. Go have a look. But the posts now use your handle only.
Didn’t see your pm’s as we rarely receive them, so it’s not checked regularly. And the Father Ted/tv reference in response to your feedback on the banners being “small and high” comment was this: [youtu.be]
If you haven’t seen it before, my humour fell flat. Ah well.
Thanks again for all your feedback through the project. All feedback is good feedback.

I’m sure this will be an unpopular post ... but I think hanging plastic from lampposts is just tacky. The signage is comparable to something I’d expect to see in a leisure centre. We don’t need to add plastic to our street to make it beautiful - hanging baskets of flowers would have been wayyy better IMO.

Not to mention more plastic just waiting to be binned or recycled.

I get that it’s a nice project for the local community but IMO these bring zero to our streets. Could it have just lived within a gallery instead...? Not something I want to see everyday

Hi Ali

Thanks for your comments and concerns. It's not an unpopular post from our side, and please let me try to answer your points.

The Southwark Council "High Street Challenge" initiative has specific objectives for inclusion, and flower baskets wouldn't have met those criteria on the round we took part in. On top of that there is the ongoing costs of maintaining, regularly watering and replacing flower baskets. We agree they would be lovely however. If you'd like to look into pushing an initiative forward for the next round of funding, the website and info that we used is here: [www.southwark.gov.uk]
We'd be happy to meet and chat with you if you do decide to go for it. Within our round, we delivered the train station mural, the photo competition, gallery show and street banner exhibition, which involved thousands of members of our community, plus there will be ongoing improvements to North Cross Road Market in conjunction with the street traders association. It's been challenging but very rewarding.

To address your plastic/environmental concerns, the banners were produced by Southwark Council's own supplier, who have excellent environmental credentials. The banners are 100% recyclable and PVC free. At the end of the campaign, they will be removed by the same supplier and recycled. The finishing methods used reduce off-cuts as waste, and use a technique which requires no plastic or metal eyelets, which also adds to the strength and lifespan of the banners. This also makes the process faster, reducing energy and emissions in production. The supplier adds to this by using low emission, localised transport for delivery and removal. When the campaign ends, they will be 100% recycled. Southwark Council will be able to provide exact credentials for selecting and working with partners for outdoor furniture if you'd like to look into it further. They have been extremely helpful and friendly to us throughout the whole campaign.

I hope this answers your concerns. Please do let us know if you proceed with the next round of the High Street Challenge, and if we can help, we we'd love to. I'm led to believe some locals are pushing forward with another mural project at the train station too, which is really exciting. We can't wait for updates on this, as this was one of our favourite elements to work on.

We say hooray to that! We love East Dulwich, so the more local, community minded initiatives like this the better!
