The annual photography competition by the Heraldry Society is open for entries seeking photos of anything to do with coats of arms, crests and shields — of which London is replete.

The competition invites non-professional photographers to find and capture scenes, buildings or objects that feature a strong heraldic content or that communicate something of the fascination, beauty, colour or boldness of heraldry.

Compositions can demonstrate the context or setting of the subject; they can seek to express something from the long history and variety of the heraldic tradition, from anywhere in the world.

The competition is open to persons aged 18 and over, and closes on the 30th of September – full details are here.

Copyright in all images submitted remains with the respective entrants. However, each entrant grants a worldwide, irrevocable, perpetual licence to The Heraldry Society to feature any or all of the submitted images in any of their publications, their websites and/or in any promotional material connected to this competition. Due acknowledgement to the photographer will be given.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
