CA Photograph Competition (for Croquet Calendar)

The Croquet Calendar is primarily a photographic competition, but it should have the effect of bringing the joys of croquet to a wider audience.

The judges will select the best twelve images submitted.

These will demonstrate the inventiveness, imagination and skill of the creator and will probably not be pictures of the club chairman presenting the trophy to the winner of the annual handicap competition! The impressive images will form the photographic parts of the new Croquet Calendar and the successful photographers will be properly acknowledged and will become justly famous!

The best of the twelve selected pictures will not only be used as the cover of the calendar but will also win its creator the title of "Croquet Photographer of the Year" and an as yet undecided prize.

CA Shop Sale and a Charity Angle

When assembled, the calendar will be sold by the CA Shop and other selected outlets.
Purchasers will acquire a wonderful colourful gift to present to the croquet-obsessed friends or relatives of their choice.

The net proceeds of sale of this almost-unique publication will be divided between the CA and the national charity selected for support by the CA.

Submitting Your Photo Entries

We know that there are many resourceful, aspiring paparazzi and daguerreotypists in the croquet community. A beautiful photograph is timeless - so you don't have to take one especially for this competition.

One from your collection would be wholly acceptable and there is no limit on the number of entries that you may submit. Please submit your croquet-related photographic image(s) of publishable quality (i.e. with lots of pixels) to Chris Roberts, who is, of course, the Editor of the Croquet Gazette and, in his capacity as a renowned professional sports photographer, will be Chairman of the Panel of Distinguished Judges.

The closing date is not yet close and you have plenty of time. Any image submitted on or before Sunday 19 September Sunday 17th October 2021 will be entered into the competition, which is open to any individual member of the CA. Send your photographs to: with the subject line 'Croquet Photo Competition'.
