LOCAL photographers are invited to enter a new competition to capture the best images of Fenland.

Atelier East and Fenland District Council have joined forces in search of the Fenland Photographer of the Year 2012 competition, which will raise the profile of local photographers and give them a national platform. 

There are six categories and the competition is open to everyone from the novice to the professional, and all ages too!

The categories are: Heritage and Culture, Churches, Waterland, Outdoor Pursuits, Parks/Gardens and Open Spaces, Fenland Market Towns. You can submit up to 18 pictures across the six categories.

Selected photographers will be invited to exhibit their winning photographs with Atelier East at the Octavia View gallery in Wisbech throughout this December and January 2012, with all work being offered for sale (if the photographer so wishes).

Photographers can also win the opportunity to have their pictures published and credited in the Welcome to Cambridgeshire Fens, visitor and accommodation guide which is distributed nationally.

There will be a special awards evening on December 2 at Octavia View. There will be an award for one winner in each category and the overall winner, selected from the six categories, will be awarded a trophy and the grand title of Fenland Photographer of the Year 2012.

The deadline for entries is September 30. For more information and an entry form email;
