On Thursday 20th September the winning photographers from this year’s Photography Competition visited Farleigh Hospice for the Calendar 2019 launch evening.

As part of the competition the best 13 photographs were selected from over a hundred entries and will take pride of place in the Farleigh Hospice Calendar for 2019. All of the winning photographs were chosen because they expertly captured the county of Essex in all of its natural beauty.

Pauline Harvey-Jones, Commercial Director at Farleigh Hospice said of the evening “It was a pleasure to meet all the talented photographers who so enthusiastically took part in this year’s Photography Competition and our 2019 calendar. The sale of the official Farleigh Hospice Calendar across mid-Essex will help raise the vital funds we need to support those with life-limiting illnesses and their families and friends.”

During the launch evening the winners were gifted an early release version of the 2019 Calendar and had the opportunity to chat and share tips and tricks with their fellow photographers.
