Scott Lawson wins RBH photography competition for new website

Date published: 13 May 2020

Local resident Scott Lawson has won Rochdale Boroughwide Housing’s photography competition for the housing provider’s new website.

With over 150 high quality entries, the judging panel of elected tenant and employee representatives, board members, and the executive team had a tremendous challenge picking the winners for the neighborhood categories.

Overall winner Mr Lawson will receive a brand-new smart watch for his stunning photograph of Rochdale's co-operative railway bridge over Edinburgh Way, plus £50 worth of Amazon vouchers for winning the Rochdale Central neighbourhood category.

The winners of the neighbourhood categories, each win £50 worth of Amazon vouchers: Ian Lord (Rochdale North and South), Ruth Camm (Middleton), Judith Wadsworth (Heywood) and Ian Campbell (Pennines).

Over the past few months, RBH have been working closely with tenants and with digital partners Prodo to deliver a brand-new website and customer portal. The new portal, MyRBH, makes it easier for RBH tenants to access their services online – including paying rent and reporting a repair.

One consistent theme from tenants during the website development was that the new website should have a greater focus on local content from RBH neighbourhoods.

RBH tenants and customers can visit to browse the new website – including the winning photographs - and to sign up for the new MyRBH portal.
