Calendar photography competition

Calling all amateur photographers…we need your help!

As part of DZC’s 85th anniversary celebrations, we’re planning on launching a 2023 fundraising zoo calendar and we’re on the hunt for images which depict the quirkiness of DZC, including our animals, 11th century Dudley Castle and architecture.

That’s where you come in!

We’re looking for a number of images to use in the multi-photo calendar from over the last 12 months, which we’ll need by 30th April.

We can’t wait to see your photos… Happy snapping!
