Photography competition “A Natural Environment”

Image Theme

Ecoffins produces a desk calendar every year for their clients, who are mainly Funeral Directors. The calendar gets distributed throughout the country and is displayed in many of the UK’s 6000+ Funeral homes. This year’s theme is “A Natural Environment” and Ecoffins is looking for 12 images, one for each month. The images should display parts of a British or other European environment. Each image will display the photographer’s name and the location of the taken image. Due to the environment in which this calendar will be used Ecoffins is looking for images that reflect the natural beauty of landscapes and places in the UK or in Europe in a positive, memorable and calm way.
