The Blesma Calendar competition has an open theme this year and the charity want you to send in pictures that capture the beauty of the countryside, cities, people and all the wonderful life within it…

From all your entries, the best photographs will be chosen to make up the Blesma Calendar for 2019, which all members will receive a copy.

The photo competition is open to all Blesma members and each can send in up to four photos. Whatever you decide to photograph, please do it responsibly – take care not to disturb any animals or damage the environment. Art painting and drawings can also be entered in a .jpg format (sizing as below).

Entrants can submit up to four photos in total, in colour or black and white. Images must be at least W253mm by H236mm or 10 inches by 9.3 inches and 300DPI. Please contact Blesma if you are not sure about sizing.

Please send your entries to by 30th September 2018.

The judging panel this year will be Blesma’s Chief Executive, Barry Le Grys MBE, and Operations Director, Ian Waller, who will chose the best photographs for the 2019 Blesma Calendar.
