Two weeks ago we sent out a poll containing a selection of themes allowing everyone to vote for their favourite. The winning theme as voted by a notable majority is COLOURS. How does the Jenrick Charity Photo Competition work? Every year, Jenrick runs a charity photo competition that allows members of the public to enter photos based on a theme, as voted by the public themselves! The 12 winning photos, as voted by award winning photographers Media Wisdom Photography, are featured in the Jenrick corporate calendar, one photo per month (hence the number 12!) which ends up on the desks of many companies across the country! Not only that, Jenrick donates £1,200 to charity and with each of the winners receiving £100 from that pool of money to donate to a charity of their choice.

What kind of 'colour' photos can you send in? So, now the theme has been announced, here are some ideas as to the kind of colourful photos you can send in:

  • Colourful Landscapes/Nature
  • Colourful Objects
  • Contrasts in colour - E.g. Colour clashes
  • Seasons - E.g. Autumnal colours, spring colours etc
  • Colourful wildlife - E.g. Tropical birds, insects etc
  • Eye Colour

Of course, these are just ideas but we're looking for imaginative and vibrant photos with lots of colour, so be creative! For those of you who are interested to see the other themes that were in the running, please see the overall poll results below.


How to send in your photos! Now you can start sending in your colourful photos! Simply send them to (2 photos maximum per person please). CLOSING DEADLINE FOR PHOTO ENTRIES: SATURDAY 1ST SEPTEMBER 2012. NB: - Picture Quality/manipulation: As the Calendar will be printed, we do require pictures of at least 500kb in size to ensure they are large enough to include. So, if you take any pictures with smart phones or mobile phones, please ensure that the resolution is set at the highest possible level.  Please can we also ask for photos not to be digitally manipulated.
