Trustee Catherine Cannon said: “Every year the quality of the photos just gets better, I can’t wait to see this year’s submissions. We’ve invited a number of local schools to take part and I’m really looking forward to seeing the junior entries.”

This year the prizes include a Giclee print of your favourite image offered by Selsey Press; Whitby’s has donated a seven-piece photo frame and the trust has donated a fish and chip cruise on trip boat Richmond. There will also be a special prize for the best junior, 17 and under, entry. This is either a one-day workshop to learn more about taking photos with your DSLR OR a half-day one to one session with the principal of Imber Court Photo Training to learn more about your DSLR camera.
