Norfolk Day photo competition celebrates local charities

Entries are now open for our annual photo competition celebrating inspirational local charities and community groups.

In what continues to be a most challenging and uncertain time for many Norfolk communities, we have seen how our local charities and community groups have yet again stepped up, taken action and continued to support our most vulnerable. This Norfolk Day, we want to continue to celebrate the amazing people, activities and places that are at the heart of our community with our annual photo competition.

The winning entry will receive a £500 cash prize, with a second prize of £300 and a third prize of £200 available.

Following shortlisting and then decision by an expert panel, the winning images will be announced to celebrate Norfolk Day on Wedenesday 27th July 2022. Three winners will receive a cash prize of up to £500 to support the work of their community group and we aim to feature as many examples as possible of work given throughout the next year.

Deadline for submission is Friday 15th July 2022.
