Kinglassie Postcard Competition

Kinglassie Postcard Competition

I had a couple of Fife Pilgrim Way walkers in my shop yesterday and they wanted to know if I had any postcards of Kinglassie as they like to send a postcard from each village/town they walk through.  That isn't something I stock and I wondered where I might be able to get some for future, then the thought struck me, why not get the residents of Kinglassie to show off our beautiful village!

So here it is, a competition for Kinglassie postcards with two categories, one for under 16's, and one for over 16's.  Postcards will be sold in Chandlers Attic and a goodie bag given to both winners.  All photograph entries must be emailed to

Note that the photos should be jpegs, landscape to fit the postcard format and should be a reasonable resolution for printing (around 300 dpi or more).  Other points are given in the competition rules (below).

Your photo can be of anything that is recognisable as Kinglassie  The deadline for photos is Sunday 22nd August 2021, thereafter the entries will be open for public voting with the winners announced on.Wednesday 1st September 2021
