Applicants must submit their applications online via the Facebook app 'Be the Face of WCY2014'. Applicants need to fill out the required fields, and give us a statement or quote relating to their chosen theme. Deadline for this application is 20th March.

Followers then get to 'like' and decide which quote they like the best. The photos with the most likes (one for each theme) will be selected as the winner and announced on the 18th of April.
