Stour Valley River

Calendar Photo Competition

Have your photo featured in our 2024 Stour Valley calendar


Each year, we look for seasonal photos of the Stour Valley for our calendar. We sell the calendar in our Kingfisher Barn Visitor Centre, with all profits to The Parks Foundation.

We are looking for cheerful and colourful seasonal scenic views and wildlife pictures of the Stour Valley. Ideally, the photos will be in landscape orientation (for the calendar format) and keep people featured to a minimum.

We will be accepting photos from 3rd July to 31st August 2023 inclusive. We will accept a maximum of 5 pictures submitted per person. Staff at Kingfisher Barn will be judging the photos for the competition.

Winning photos will be featured in our 2024 calendar and each winner will receive a free copy of the calendar. The photographer of the image with the most votes will also receive a £10 gift voucher for the Kingfisher Barn Visitor Centre.
