Northamptonshire photography competition launched for nature calendar
Amateur photographers, nature enthusiasts and animal lovers who enjoy taking photos of Northamptonshire’s wildlife might see their work featured in a calendar due to be released this year.
In addition to being featured in the Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and Leicestershire Image Calendar, there will be a Global Prize for Best Adult Photographer and Best Junior Photographer.
The calendars will be distributed to customers, residents, community partners and partner charities, and will be displayed in all marketing suites of the Mulberry Homes Contest Organizer Developments.
Kerry Jones, Director of Sales and Marketing at Mulberry Homes, said, “We are very excited to launch our Photo Calendar competition. At Mulberry Homes, we are committed to supporting as much as possible the local communities and areas in which we are building new homes, and we are committed to incorporating sustainable and ethical practices into our core values at every opportunity.
“It’s a huge part of our mission to protect local wildlife and create safe environments for nature to thrive and thrive. Raising awareness of how we can protect vulnerable wildlife, such as hedgehogs, is close to our hearts and we are excited to share our passion with residents and community groups.
“We look forward to receiving entries from locals’ favorite natural spots, local animals and more, and we can’t wait to create our own 2022 nature-themed calendar for everyone to enjoy.”
The registration deadline is Monday, November 15 at 5 p.m. Representatives from Mulberry Homes and a panel of community partners will then evaluate the entries and select 12 winners who will appear in a 2022 calendar, with an image representing each month of the year.
Each winner will receive vouchers worth £ 100 which can be used for photographic equipment of their choice. Of the 12 winning entries, the judges will also choose an adult general winner and a junior general winner, who will be awarded an additional £ 50 each and the distinction of appearing on the first page of the calendar.
