The competition has already attracted hundreds of entries and it is open, as ever, to anyone who loves getting out and about with their camera.

There’s still plenty of time to enter so be sure to send in up to five of your favourite images, taken in the last 12 months, and you could win a prize. There are three categories, one for adults and two for juniors – under 11s and 11-16 year-olds. Prizes will be awarded to the winner of each category, and there will also be special prizes awarded for the best landscape shot, the best wildlife photograph and a photo of the editor’s choice. This year, there will also be a chance to enter an additional category being run by Hearing Dogs for the Deaf. The charity’s theme is ‘pets assisting their owners’ and all entries that adhere to the theme are welcome.

All the entries will be printed and mounted and will feature in St Neots and District’s Camera Club’s annual exhibition at the Priory Centre, St Neots, from 10am-4.30pm on Saturday, March 12. Entrance to the exhibition is £1, which includes a programme.

To enter, images should be emailed to huntspost@hotmail.co.uk

Gill Yeates, of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, said: “We are very pleased to be the beneficiary charity of the photo competition. Hearing Dogs and our puppy recruits will be at the exhibition. In addition there will be a large display of photographs of our local hearing dogs, some taken at a puppy training class.

“We are looking for volunteers who may wish to become a puppy socialiser or help with promoting our work by speaking or fundraising. We look forward to meeting those who attend and seeing the fabulous photos on display.”
