Dacorum is a beautiful place with so much to offer and we want to see it all! The Mayors Office at Dacorum Borough Council have partnered with Diverse Print to produce a calendar for 2022, showcasing the best parts of our Borough, with a photo for each month.
We are inviting residents to go out and take photos of spots within the Borough, which are beautiful and should be recognised. This could be pictures of natural spots of beauty, from the parks and canals to the wildlife; or it could be built areas such as the High Streets and Walled Gardens. So we invite you to get creative over the next few months and get your cameras/phones out to submit your pictures for the Dacorum Borough Council 2022 calendar.
To participate in this event, please submit your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Calendars will be sold from the end of September and be available online via the Mayors page, on the Dacorum Borough Council website. All winners will have their pictures printed and be invited, as guests, to the Forum for a Gallery Viewing on Friday 1st April, 2022. The event will be open to members of the public, with tickets being sold online for any additional guests.
All proceeds are being donated to DENs; a charity aiming to help people within Dacorum facing homelessness, poverty and social exclusion.
