WHAT IS IT?
A photographic competition entitled 'Rusthall: A Picture Tells All' which is being run by the Rusthall Village Association and is intended to be an opportunity for people to send in up to 5 images of what Rusthall means to them today. There is no restriction as to what or where in the village the photographs are taken (all pictures will be vetted prior to publication for common decency and appropriateness for an all-age audience). They can be of people, places, animals, buildings, landscapes, wildlife, events etc.
