We’re asking readers to submit photos of the county taken throughout the year to make up the 13 images in the Dorset Magazine Readers’ 2022 Calendar. From coast to countryside, wildlife and wildflowers to outdoor pursuits, handsome towns and pretty villages, famous landmarks and hidden gems, all will be considered. The glossy calendar will be packaged with the December issue of Dorset Magazine and all those featured will be part of a special article.

What do we need? 

Photographs need to be landscape (not portrait), so oblong in shape. 

Please supply photographs of at least 3000 pixels on their shortest edge (i.e. 3000 pixels tall for a landscape photo). 

The photographs must be taken by you and be of a Dorset location. 

Please include a caption for each image so we know what it is, where it is and what time of year it was taken.
