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


To celebrate this year’s Norfolk Day, we’re excited to announce the launch of a photo competition for local charities and groups which aims to celebrate all of the vital work that they do in their local communities. Groups are invited to submit photos illustrating their inspirational work; the winning entry will receive a £500 cash prize, with a second prize of £300 and a third prize of £200 available.

Norfolk Day is a celebration of everything this wonderful county can offer, and is the perfect opportunity to highlight the work of local organisations, which are often small in size but big in impact. Norfolk Community Foundation is proud to support many of these neighbourhood charities, targeting funds where the need is greatest. At the backbone of many local communities, these organisations work tirelessly to make Norfolk a better place for everyone, whether this is by tackling isolation, providing support to vulnerable families and individuals, supporting local organisations tackling poor mental health, and in many other valuable ways. Their amazing work deserves to be celebrated as part of Norfolk Day.
