Children North East Calendar

Do you enjoy taking beautiful photographs of our great Northern landscape, landmarks and its wildlife?

Then why not help us create our unique 130th anniversary Children North East calendar?

To celebrate our charity’s birthday this year, we’re inviting photography fans to send in their favourite pictures from around our fantastic region for a 2022 wall calendar that will not only showcase your talents but also raise much-needed funds for babies, children and young people.

A panel of judges, including a professional photographer, will select the top 13 pictures to take their place in the 2022 calendar that will be on sale through our website in time for Christmas. The entrant who, in the judges’ opinion, submits the best picture, will receive a £100 worth of shopping vouchers donated by John Lewis. The runner up will also receive £30 of John Lewis vouchers and each winner will also receive a complimentary calendar.

We’d love as many people as possible to get involved – whether you have specialist camera equipment or simply a trusty smartphone.

All you have to do is complete this simple entry form and start planning those pics! Please note that your image may be cropped in order to correctly fit the shape of the calendar.

We’d encourage you to enter as many photographs as you’d like – why not take one every month to truly reflect each season? It’s free to take part so why not give it a go? We look forward to receiving your submissions!

For files under 5MB, these can be uploaded and submitted directly on to this page, for any files over 5MB please send these to us at after filling in the form below.  Please make sure you read the Terms and Conditions below before submitting any entries.

The Closing Date for entries is 30 September 2021.
