Skears Photographic is excited to launch a Northamptonshire Charity Calendar, photographic competition! You can win some fantastic prizes, whilst helping to raise money for local charities!

We will be producing a 2019 calendar featuring 12 winners’ images, with all profits from sales of the calendar donated to our two chosen charities - Cynthia Spencer Hospice and Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

One overall winner will win a £100 Skears Photographic gift voucher, an A3 fine art print of their winning image and a copy of the calendar. The 11 other winners will win an A3 fine art print of their winning image and a copy of the calendar.

We’re looking for photographs that showcase Northamptonshire. This may include landscape photographs of the countryside through the different seasons, nature and wildlife images from your local woodlands, or urbanscapes of Northamptonshire’s towns and villages. There’s only one rule - your entries must be taken in Northamptonshire!

We’re inviting entries from everyone - regardless of skill level! Photographs will be published in the calendar and credited to the photographer, so why not enter some of your favourite photographs and get published across the county!


How to Enter:

 We are limiting entries to 5 per person. To enter simply email your photographs to skearscalendarcompetition@gmail.com or feel free to drop in with some negatives before the closing date.

One entry per email. Please include full name, contact number and location where the photograph was taken. Entries close Sunday 2nd September 2018 at 11.59pm.
