The search for Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year has begun and you could enter by simply sending a selfie via      

Finalists of the competition will have the chance to rub shoulders with celebs at the London-based star studded awards event, where the national winner will take away £10,000.

Essex are the most glam specs-wearers

Last year it was proved that Essex residents are the most glamorous glasses wearer when Silver End resident Alex Miller won the crown and five Essex-based regional semi-finalists were selected – more than any other county.

Paul Wickson, director at Specsavers in Braintree says: ‘It was great to have a local resident to our store win Spectacle Wearer of the Year last year. The contest is a fun way to celebrate glasses as well as support a fantastic charity. We are hoping someone in our community will be the winner again.’

Donation to charity for each entry

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 mingle with celebrities at the awards in London in October.

Deadline for entries is 1 July 2018.

£1 will be donated by Specsavers for each entry to anti-bullying charity Kidscape
