Do you have an eye for taking a prize-winning photograph?

Today The Hunts Post launches its 2015 Photo Competition, open to anyone who loves getting out and about with their camera.

Hunts Post editor Stefan Bartlett said: “This is a contest for all you amateur enthusiasts out there. The subject matter is down to you - if it is a photo you are proud of, send it in. So grab your camera and get snapping.”

Send in up to six of your favourite images, taken in the last 12 months, and you could win a prize. Everyone who takes part will see their work go on public display.

There are three categories, one for adults and two for juniors - under 11s and 11 to 16 year olds. Prizes will be awarded to the winner of each.
