Budding photographers will be entered into one of three age categories – aged eight to 12, 13 to 15 and 16 to 18.

The winner of each category will receive a £50 voucher supplied by the Arts Society Dukeries and the very best photos in each category will be displayed in prominent places across Bassetlaw - including town halls and museums.

The closing date for entries is September 2.

Judging will take place by a panel of judges made up from The Arts Society Dukeries, Focus on Young People in Bassetlaw, photographer Ali Gordon and the mayor of Retford, Councillor Sue Shaw.

Winners and runners up will be notified by email shortly after the closing date.

Ali Gordon, admin and events coordinator of the charity, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for children and young people to connect with their local community and think about what they like about it and why, whilst encouraging them to take more photos, improving their photography skills.”
