Supporting Mental Health Awareness Week

In January 2021, during lockdown, the College launched ​a Nature Photography competition, ​inviting members of the Hills Road community to explore the natural world close to their homes, and submit their favourite nature photos each month. The competition was inspired by Mental Health Awareness Week in May, which had the theme 'Nature and the environment'.

Photographs could be based on any of the four categories; Looking Closely, Plants, Animals, and Tranquillity of Nature.

Every month, prizes were awarded for the best photo in each category, with the winner receiving a £25 Amazon voucher, plus a prize for the best parent photo and the best staff photo.

At the end of the competition, the shortlisted ​pictures were sent to the celebrity judges, BBC The One Show’s wildlife reporter Mike Dilger, and Countryfile presenter Tom Heap, former Hills student. They chose 12 photos to be published in the Hills Road calendar.

It has been an incredibly tough year, and I’ve sought sanctuary from watching wildlife; I forget about all of my worries and enjoy being outside. Congratulations to everyone who’s taken part in this competition, especially the winners who feature in the calendar; I look forward to receiving my copy for displaying in my office
