Entries invited for charity photo exhibition

Local photographers are invited to submit photos of Hertfordshire’s places to be considered for inclusion in the Herts in Focus 2021 charity photo exhibition.
Following on from the success of last year’s Herts in Focus 2020 which featured Hertfordshire wildlife, the 2021 exhibition’s subject matter will be Hertfordshire places and will once again be raising money for local charity, Hertfordshire Community Foundation (HCF).

30 photographs featuring places and landscapes from across the county in all seasons will be selected by a panel of judges and posted one a day on social media during the month of October 2021. The photos will also be for sale on the Herts in Focus website ( Pictures will be printed A4 and mounted and framed in a 30cm x 40cm frame and sold for £50 with all profit going to HCF (last year £7,700 was raised).

Local photographers are invited to submit a maximum of three high resolution images in JPEG format for consideration. The photographer will need to agree to give their image to the exhibition. Contributions should be emailed to with a title and location by Friday 20th August 2021. The curation for the exhibition will take place on 1st September 2021.

As the prolonged economic impact of the pandemic unfolds local issues including food poverty, social isolation, poor mental health and domestic violence are being exacerbated. Funding to help the most vulnerable is needed now more than ever.

Hertfordshire Community Foundation is a local independent charity that collects donations to provide grants and support to small charities, voluntary groups and families in crisis in Hertfordshire. Over the past three decades HCF has funded thousands of local initiatives addressing complex social issues including domestic abuse, learning disabilities, bereavement, homelessness, mental health and many more.
