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

The Hunts Post launched its 2018 Photo Competition last month and hundreds of entries have been received, but there is still time to get your shots in.

Send in up to four of your favourite images, taken in the last 12 months, and you could win a prize.

There are three categories: one for adults, one for those aged under 11, and one for those aged between 11 and 16-years-old.

Prizes will be awarded to the winner of each category, and there will also be special prizes awarded in the adult class under the theme ‘wildlife’ and under the theme ‘flowers’ in the junior classes.

The competition is being run in partnership with St Neots and District Camera Club.

All the entries will be printed and mounted and will feature in the club’s annual exhibition, which this year is its 66th. It will be held at the Priory Centre, St Neots, from 10am-4pm on Saturday, October 20.
