Calendar comp


Don’t forget our photography competition – when your work could appear in our fundraising DZC 2023 calendar!

There’s still plenty of time to enter, as the deadline isn’t until April 30 and with the sun set to shine all week, it’s a great time to grab your camera and get snapping.

We’re on the hunt for pictures to depict the quirkiness of DZC and are hoping for photos showcasing Dudley Castle, our unique architecture and our animals.

We’ve had lots of images already, but ask you to read the instructions before submitting, as we do need high resolution JPEG pictures.

Photographers can submit up to two pictures each, which must have been taken within the last 12 months.

We can’t wait to see your entries!
