Budding snappers, keen to enter River Canal Rescue’s photography competition have until midnight, 31 May, to email their marine, river or canal-based images to rcrcompetition@gmail.com.

Twelve photos will be chosen by judges – RCR managing director, Stephanie Horton, Canal Boat editor, Charlie Waters and Canal & River Trust communications manager, Damian Kemp – to illustrate its 2025 calendar with any sales’ profits donated to Cancer Research UK.

Entries should be landscape in size and as long as they’re water-based, can be anything from cruising scenes to wildlife images. Multiple entries are permitted, they must be original, in a hi-resolution format, taken by the entrant, and accompanied with some background information, including a name, photo title, brief description of the image, and when and where it was taken.

RCR’s calendars will be on sale from the end of August and every image received will feature in a video, released on YouTube and RCR’s Facebook page, and potentially used in future promotional material, crediting the owner.
