There is still time to enter the Norfolk Community Foundation’s photo challenge in celebration community life in Norfolk.
Photo entries need to be focused around the idea of communities in Norfolk and the charity hopes to received lots of photos from community and charity groups.
The Norfolk Community Foundation works with charities and voluntary groups around Norfolk with the photo challenge a chance to showcase what these groups do.
The aim is to encourage charities and voluntary groups to take a snapshot of the people, activities and places at the heart of different communities.
The foundation hopes to announce the three winners of the photo competition on Norfolk Day on Friday, July 27.
People can send in their photos in until May 31 to the Norfolk Community Foundation, all of which will go to a public vote in June.
The photo must include people, entrants must live in Norfolk and the photo must be taken in Norfolk.
The 12 photos with the most votes will be shortlisted and the photo with the most votes will be named People’s Choice Winner with the winning photographer winning a £500 grant.
Judges will then choose the remaining two competition winners, who will win cash prizes of £300 and £200 respectively to support the work of their organisation.
Norfolk Day is taking place for the first time ever this summer.
It offers communities, groups, individuals and businesses an opportunity to celebrate what they love best about our county in whatever way they want to.
David Powles, editor of the Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News - the main backers of Norfolk Day, said: “This competition is the perfect opportunity to celebrate community life at its best and I’m excited the winners will be announced on Norfolk Day.
“Norfolk is such a beautiful place. It has so many amazing people, communities and groups which make it a great county to live in.”
Norfolk Day is also being backed by BBC Radio Norfolk and is being sponsored by Woodforde’s Brewery and Richardson’s Hemsby Beach Holiday Park with Norfolk Wildlife Trust the official charity partner.
