Shooting sounds for charity calendar

A manufacturer of noise-measurement devices is encouraging budding photographers to enter its ‘Noise in Action’ competition and help raise money for charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People in the process.

Cirrus Research is seeking interesting, unusual and imaginative images that illustrate noise, its measurement, or its impact. Images must be of sufficient size and quality for reproduction as an A4 image, at a resolution of 300dpi.

A dozen images will be selected to feature in the company’s 2013 charity calendar, which will be on sale from the end of October. The image chosen for the front cover and one of the months will win a prize of £150. The 11 other images will each win a £50 Amazon voucher. Cirrus Research says the winning images will be chosen on their individual merit and will be selected by the company itself.

All funds raised will be donated to Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, a charity that trains dogs to help the deaf. The role of a hearing dog is to alert deaf people to everyday household sounds and danger signals in the home, workplace, and public buildings. Hearing dogs also help address the isolation, stress and anxiety from which individuals with deafness can potentially suffer, explains Cirrus.

The closing date for entries is 31 August. For more information about how to enter the competition, as well as the full terms and conditions, visit
