The competition has proved to be so popular that we have decided to run four each year to represent the seasons.

So, the next one will run in November for autumn images.

“Now the leaves are starting to fall from the trees and there are so many beautiful colours around us, take the opportunity over the next few weeks to capture the season and start sending us your images,” said Editor Debbie Davies.

Closing date is November 27. The competition is open to anyone living in Huntingdonshire and the images must be taken in Cambridgeshire. Entry is one image per person and photos must be in jpeg format. Entries must be via email and entrants must provide full name and town or village where they live and a short description of the image.
