Ecoffins Photography Competition 2019

"The Art of Recycling"

Ecoffins Photography Competition 2019

Every year we produce a desk calendar for our funeral director customers. This calendar gets distributed throughout the country and is displayed in many of the UK’s 6000+ Funeral homes.

Over the past few years we have run a photography competition to find pictures to feature in the calendar and this year we are running our competition again.

As the UK’s premier manufacturer and supplier of eco-friendly coffins and urns we are dedicated to protecting the planet and the environment. All of our products are made from highly sustainable and/or recycled materials. This year’s photography competition theme echoes our environmental ethos. We are looking for 12 images that reflect the “ART OF RECYCLING” - pictures that capture inventive and stunning recycling. This could be a picture of something you've seen, or something you've made, where old materials have been used to make something new.

The competition runs from now until the end of July, with a top prize of £200 and £25 vouchers for 11 runners-up, so get snapping!
