Staff Benefits 2019 Calendar Competition

The Competition

The Staff Benefits Calendar Competition is back!   In the 70th year of the NHS we want to celebrate the diversity of our workforce with a ‘Gems of our hometowns’ competition.  Staff are invited to send in their image of their hometown - wherever in the world they may be!  It could be a photograph, drawing, painting or illustration.  Creativity is encouraged and we’re looking forward to seeing skylines, landscapes, buildings, houses, people and animals; in fact anything that shows your favourite view of your home town!


All entries will be considered by a panel of judges, which this year will be comprised of members of the Staff Benefits Committee. The panel will select 12 winners, one for each month of the 2019 Staff Benefits calendar.  One of these entries will be named as the overall winner and used on the front cover of the 2019 calendar.  All entries will be saved in an image bank for use by the Arts and Staff Benefits teams and posted on social media throughout 2019.

How to Enter

  1. Decide on your view and get snapping, drawing or painting!
  2. Photograph/scan your view following the guidelines below.
  3. Complete an application form and submit your image to the Staff Benefits Team either by email or send on a memory stick
