Cover Image: Mike Campbell - 2018 Winner
After the success of last years competition, Skears Photographic is excited to bring back the Northamptonshire Charity Calendar, photographic competition for 2020! You can win some fantastic prizes, whilst helping to raise money for local charities! This year, we are going even bigger and better!
We will be producing a 2020 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.
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. From amateurs to professional; from 9 year olds to 90 year olds and photos taken on smart phones to the latest greatest cameras, there's no reason not to give it a go! The 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!
All 12 winners will have their image printed on Fotospeed Fine Art Photographic paper, framed and mounted in an 16x12in Ultimat frame, as well as winning a copy of the calendar. Three additional prizes will also be awarded to first, second and third place.
This year, we will also have a 'bonus' prize supplied by Billingham. Details will be revealed at a later date.
A huge 'thank you' to our fantastic sponsors that have generously donated prizes for this competition:
Nikon, Hähnel, Manfrotto, Lowepro, Celestron, Billingham, Ultimat and Fotospeed.
"Honestly I still can't quite believe I won. As I am a member of various local photography groups on social media, I know there are some very talented local photographers, so to have an image win a competition is an honour. Also knowing the proceeds are going to two deserving charities is fantastic." Mike Campbell - 2018 Winner
