We thought we would mark the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Hertfordshire Gardens Trust in 1991 by inviting members and friends to submit photographs taken in a Hertfordshire garden, historic site or landscape.  Judging will take place in the summer by members of the committee and the winning entries will be used to create a Hertfordshire Gardens Trust calendar for 2022.

By this means we hope to not only display some of the county’s glorious gardens and landscapes but also to raise the profile of HGT and publicise what we do.

Entries can be taken by either a mobile device or a digital camera.  The most important stipulation is that they be as clear as possible.  Please use a high resolution setting to take your photographs.  They must be taken as LANDSCAPE.

Please ensure that you tell us exactly when and where each photograph was taken. 

Also let us know if there would be any restrictions on their publication.  Permission must be obtained from the owners of any private land to take and reproduce photographs.  This includes photographs taken from outside the site.

Send your entry to:

sally.pool@hotmail.co.uk as an email attachment before 31 July 2021

Please remember to include your name and contact details in the email message.

So do begin to look through your photographs now and send us what you have – the more the better to choose from.  You will have plenty of time before the end of July to take more.  You can send in as many entries as you wish.
