Wrexham Council are going to run their competition to collect photographs that showcase the beautiful places in and around the county borough, and display them in a charity calendar.

Wrexham Council produced a Wonders of Wrexham Calendar 2018 and it went on sale in November, just in time for Christmas, as pictured above and hopefully on the walls of many of your homes and offices (like ours!).

Wrexham Council have said: “We’ve now had time to reflect on the success of the competition and that so many of you were willing to take the time to submit your entries for what wasn’t exactly a life changing prize of a personal copy of the Calendar. You’ve also asked us if we will be running the competition again and we’re pleased to say that yes we will but in a slightly different way.”

This year there will be a single competition run during August and September with the theme concentrating again on all that’s beautiful and great in Wrexham.

Once again any profits from the sale of the Calendar will be given to the Mayor’s charity fund.

The Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr John Pritchard, welcomed the news that the competition will be run again: “It was an excellent idea to show everyone just what we have in Wrexham to be proud of. Beautiful architecture, some great views and what really came across was all that water!”

“I’d like to thank all those who took part in the last competition and who bought a calendar and also encourage everyone to keep snapping and look out for when the competition opens for entries in August.”

The rules again state images can be taken at any time of the year but they must be of somewhere in the county borough. 13 images will be included in the 2019 Calendar – one for the front cover and one for each month of the year.

It is worth noting the size of the images printed will be 295mm x 295 mmm and images should be cropped to this size or large enough to be cropped to this size.

All images submitted should have a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and the file formats that will be accepted are Tiff, Psd, Eps, Jpeg, High res pdf.
