FJShowUsYourShed

Specialist vehicle insurance provider, Footman James, is launching its Show Us Your Shed competition to celebrate the spaces that allow automotive enthusiasts to indulge in their passion.

Calling on motoring nuts, engineering fans, closet collectors, and garagistas: Footman James wants to see the 'sheds' that house classic and collectable passions: be they compact or palatial, grand or grungy, clinical or chaotic.

Providing an invaluable refuge for many over the last 12-months, the concept of the shed can be more than a traditional garage space (essential for classic car ownership) and can take the form of spare rooms, outbuildings or even aircraft hangars. Essential for relaxation as well as mindfulness, today's sheds come in all shapes and sizes.

Unveiled by Footman James ambassador and motoring authority Harry Metcalfe, the twomonth social media competition will award one space the inaugural 'Shed Head' trophy. Harry Metcalfe said: "The appeal of the modern 'shed' as a place to escape and recharge is universal - a place of craft, for learning new skills and creating new ideas. That’s what Show Us Your Shed is all about."

Open to everyone, not just Footman James clients, Show Us Your Shed is easy to enter via a form on the Footman James website. Simply complete the competition form with an image of your space and a few words on why you love it. You can then share your entry on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, using the #FJShowUsYourShed. Each week FJ will be highlighting entries from across the country on their social media pages, covering the vast variety and styles created by enthusiasts.

David Bond, Managing Director of Footman James said "It's not about how much the 'shed' costs, or how big it is, but the passion and the personality behind it. If you have framed every tax disk you have ever bought, or devoted a bookcase to a car magazine subscription covering decades, then we want to see it and share your love for it."

At the end of the competition, the Footman James team along with Harry Metcalfe will shortlist all submissions and decide on the one shed that stands out from the crowd.
