THE EMSWORTH Business Association has announced the release of its annual One Day Calendar for 2017.
Pictures for the release were collected through the Emsworth Life One Day monthly competition.
Open to everyone, the contest celebrated the community feel and beauty of the local area. The winning entries managed to capture Emsworth’s heritage, people and their everyday lives.
Over the past 12 months, hundreds of residents have been vying to take the best photographs and impress an independent group of judges.
The panel consisted of images editor for The News, Sarah Standing, Emsworth Business Association chairman, John Tweddell, chairwoman of the Emsworth Arts Trail, Carol Price, committee member, Zak Kara and Emsworth Business Association chairman John Tweddell,
John said: ‘It was a real joy judging all the marvellous photographs that came in each month to the calendar competition. The standard reached by many of the photographs was exceptionally high, and all of the judges found it difficult to pick one to represent Emsworth for each particular month. I think we will all miss the monthly deliberations and discussions that were needed to decide which photograph would be the overall winner.’
Each month the group selects a winning entry to be represented in the calendar. The winners also receive a bottle of Hambledon Classic Curvée.
The calendars are priced at £9 and feature all 12 of the winning photos as well as listings of the community events in Emsworth for 2017.
The items will be officially released on Monday, November 14 and all profits will be donated to good causes in the local vicinity,
Emsworth Primary School, St James’ Primary School and the RNLI (Emsworth Branch will all benefit from the money raised and the ONE day items will be sold from Bookends, High Street, Henry Adams, North Street, Bluebell Inn, South Street and The Brookfield Hotel.
