Doncaster Civic Trust is launching a contest celebrating the town's building heritage.

All submissions must adhere to the central theme of celebrating the building heritage of the Doncaster and district area.

All entries must feature, a building, or street/area, connected with Doncaster and the surrounding district, identified as being in the area of the Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council.

You are asked to visit the competition's website and register your expression of interest in taking part in the competition.

After the registration period has ended on May 31, the Trust will invite people to submit entries and pay the £10 entry fee.

You will be allowed to submit up to five pieces of work per entry.

The competition has two stages. The first stage is the online voting where all entries will be judged in a public vote.

This will determine a shortlist from the 12 highest voted entries and the second stage involves a judging panel who will decide the winner, second and third places.

All the final 12 entries that are shortlisted, will be used in a DCT calendar for 2023. For more details on how to enter the competition, go to
