AYRSHIRE Hospice are now running their photographic competition with the theme ‘Castles of Ayrshire’.

This year’s competition is to find 12 photographs for the 2019 hospice calendar. The photographs will be chosen by a panel of hospice judges and the overall winner of the competition will also have their photograph featured on the front cover of the calendar.

Running until May 13, the hospice is looking for photographers of the many castles that are around Ayrshire.

Senior Fundraising Officer, Claire Stuart-Paulin, said: “The competition has been really successful over the last few years and it is always very difficult to pick only 12 from all the beautiful photographs we receive each year.

"We are once again grateful to Vennal Cameras in Ayr who are sponsoring the competition and have donated a £150 voucher for the winner - a great prize for any keen photographer”.

Images must be in colour, high quality, high resolution (300DPI) and in landscape format.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the hospice website: https://www.ayrshirehospice.org/how-you-can-help/retail/photographic-competition/ or by calling Claire Stewart-Paulin on 01292 28848.
