Win a home energy saving pack worth £157 in YouGen's photo competition

Posted by NicoleYouGen on 28 February 2013 at 9:22 am

There's a reason for the old maxim that a picture is worth a thousand words. While we write lots about how to save energy in your home and businesses, we think that the stories told by people who've done stuff and what inspires others to give it a go. And pictures tell a great story.

We want to encourage people to think about energy, and take action to keep warm and/or save money on those ever mounting bills. And we know that you can help.

Please send us your photos of any energy saving measures you've taken to make your home or business (or community!) more energy efficient, and you'll be in with a chance to win a fabulous energy saving pack worth £157. Your photo can be comic, arty, inspiring or a down and dirty practical illustration of the joys (or otherwise) of DIY. It can be of the measure in place or of the difference it makes to your daily life - surprise us.

You'll also have a chance to determine who wins by voting on our facebook page. The winner will get a home energy saving pack, that includes:

Black & Decker Thermal Heat Detector worth £65.82

• Radiator booster worth £24.95

• Ecoflap worth £21.95

• Radflek radiator reflectors 6 Pack worth £14.95

• Pulse Eco Shower Head worth £29.95

That's a total value of  £157.62. Get snapping, and make sure it's you that takes away the prize!
