Each winner will receive vouchers worth £100 which can be used towards photography equipment of their choice. Out of the 12 winning entries, Mulberry Homes will also be choosing one overall adult winner and one overall junior winner, who will be awarded an additional £50 each and the accolade of being featured on the calendar’s front page.

The calendars will be given out to customers and residents and will be displayed in all of the developments’ marketing suites.

Kerry Jones, sales and marketing director at Mulberry Homes, said: “We’re very excited to be launching our photography calendar competition.

“It is a huge part of our mission to protect the local wildlife and create safe environments for nature to grow and thrive. Raising awareness of how we can keep vulnerable wildlife, such as hedgehogs, protected is something very close to our hearts and we’re delighted to be sharing our passion with residents and community groups alike.

“We’re looking forward to receiving entries of locals’ favourite nature spots, local animals and more, and cannot wait to create our very own, nature-themed 2022 calendar for everyone to enjoy.”
