The calendar is now complete with all the winning photos chosen.

The theme was open to your personal interpretation and we are looking for photographs that show off our incredible canal network, either in our cities or surrounded by our beautiful British Countryside.

We will be donating 50% of the sale price of each calendar sold to The Canal & River Trust, helping them to maintain our historic canals for future generations.
