The hunt is on for pictures to represent Hertford in the town’s official 2018 calendar.

It will be published by Hertford Town Council and sold in Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre.

There will be 13 winners selected to make up the 12 months and front cover of the calendar.

Photographs can be as creative as you wish, but ideally in landscape format.

They must be of Hertford and could be of the parks and gardens, the county town’s four rivers, historic landmarks, events taking place or something else that the eye of the beholder sees interest and beauty in.

Successful snappers will be presented with a complimentary calendar and certificate by the mayor of Hertford at the calendar launch ceremony at Hertford Castle on Sunday, October 8.

Councillor Jane Sartin, the chairman of the town council’s development and leisure committee, said: “Hertford’s calendar provides an opportunity to showcase our town.

“It’s always good to have different perspectives on some of our best-known buildings and views, but also images that show off the town in new ways.

“Above all, they should be pictures that could only have been taken in Hertford, and that people will enjoy seeing through 2018.”

Pictures must be submitted by the closing date of Tuesday, August 29, 2017.

To enter, simply send an email with the high resolution photograph to along with your name, address, telephone number, title of photograph and where in Hertford it was taken.

Alternatively, hand in a copy of your photograph on a CD or USB to the Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre in The Wash, opposite Hertford Theatre.

Entrants are asked to submit a maximum of three images.
