The Ayrshire Hospice is delighted to announce the return of its popular photography competition this Spring.


After a four-year hiatus, the much-loved competition for aspiring amateur photographers returns, offering them the opportunity to have one of their images featured in the Ayrshire Hospice 2025 calendar. 


This year’s theme is ‘Celebrating Ayrshire through the Seasons’, and the judging panel is seeking the finest image that encapsulates our region throughout Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter. 


The competition continues to receive fantastic support from Robert at Vennal Cameras, who will sponsor the competition and provide the overall winner with a £150 voucher. 


Gwenda Burns, Strategic Lead for Income Generation and Partnerships, commented: “We’re thrilled to bring back the Photography competition, and we're eagerly anticipating everyone’s entries. 


“Our calendar is a popular item in our shops each year, and it’s truly special to have our supporters contribute their stunning photography to it.” 


If you are an enthusiastic photographer or simply someone who loves capturing the beauty of Ayrshire, submit a maximum of four of your finest shots to enter. Whether you're grabbing your camera or phone to seize that perfect Ayrshire scene right now or digging through your archive of past seasons' pictures, get snapping and get ready to submit your entries when the submission window opens in May. 


The judging panel will select the 12 best images for next year’s calendar, with the overall winner's photograph gracing the calendar's cover. Additionally, the winner will receive a £150 voucher to spend at Vennal Cameras in Ayr.
