We are delighted to announce, that due to the success of the Create a Calendar for Hospice Care competition last year, the Charity is looking for the next set of talented photographers to feature in the Rowans Hospice Charity 2023 Calendar.

Take advantage of the gorgeous summer scenery, seaside and sunsets by capturing your photos now, ready to enter our Create a Calendar for Hospice Care competition.  You do not have to be the next David Bailey, or have the skills of an Instagram influencer to take part, all you need to do is take a photo (please read the guidelines below) of our local great outdoors.

Top Tips

Key Information
  • All photos must be taken in landscape.
  • All photos must only contain objects, landscapes and animals; they should not include people.
  • You may submit as many photos as you wish.
  • Set your camera quality to high in the settings.
  • Make sure your camera or phone are charged.
  • Tap the screen to sharpen your focus.
  • Get in close. Zoom decreases your photo quality.
  • Check for even lighting.
Would you like to sponsor a month in the Rowans Hospice Charity 2023 Calendar?

The Charity is looking for twelve businesses or organisations to support one month each in the calendar, by donating £100 in return for featuring your logo. This is a perfect opportunity to potentially capture new customers, promote your services and let everyone across Portsmouth and South East Hampshire know you support local Hospice care.

It is the aim of the Charity to use these donations to cover the cost of printing and production, which means the income generated from calendar purchases goes directly to supporting people in our local community who are affected by life-limiting illness.

Please contact our Income Generation Team via 02392 250 001 or fundraising@rowanshospice.co.uk for further information.
