Specsavers Opticas want to celebrate specs as a fashion statement and great accessory, not merely a visual aid.
To highlight and reward the millions of ordinary people in Spain who look amazing in their glasses they are launching the Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards on 1 June. People can enter between 1 June and 5 July via Facebook and online at specsavers.es/loveglasses. At the end of the competition, one champion will win a cash prize of €500 and five semi-finalists will win a pair of designer frames worth 159 €.
Natasha Gray, Frame Communications Manager and Global Stylist from Specsavers commented: “We want to find people who make their specs a key part of their identity, no matter what their age or style, and love the way they look in their glasses. There will be winners representing a range of ages thanks to our new age catregories, so we hope lots of people will have fun with selfies which celebrate their unique sense of style.”
From 1st June entrants simply need to submit a recent colour photo of themselves wearing glasses. Anyone from the age of 16 or over can enter and there are five age categories; 16-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-59, 60+. The person crowned the overall Spectacle Wearer of the Year will win €500 and a pair of designer frames. There will also be a semi-finalist from each age category who will each win a pair of designer frames.
