The team from Specsavers Coatbridge will be on the lookout for stunning specs wearers around the town as they issue a final call for entries for the Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards.

By simply sharing a selfie by Sunday 3 July, glasses wearers in Coatbridge could be in with a chance of winning a trip to New York and £10,000.

Now in its 21st year, the competition raises valuable funds for anti-bullying charity Kidscape, which has totalled £300,000 to date.

Express your style

Andrew McGonagle store director at Specsavers in Coatbridge, said: ‘We’ve seen some brilliant entries so far. The great thing about this competition is no matter what your age or personal style, it’s all about wearing your specs with pride.

‘This is the last chance for people in Coatbridge to showcase their specs appeal to the whole country. We’re encouraging glasses wearers to upload a selfie today, it couldn’t be easier.’

The competition has five age categories – 16-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-59 and over 60s plus a Facebook favourite voted for by the public. A winner from each category will win a VIP makeover and will mingle with celebrities at a central London awards ceremony in October.

The money raised from entries will help Kidscape provide training, support and advice for children, parents, schools and those who may be affected by cases of bullying and abuse in the UK.

To be in with a chance of scooping the biggest accolade in the specs-wearing world, glasses wearers can enter the competition online here.
