BOTH professional and amateur photographers are being invited to submit their favourite snaps which show the best Northumberland has to offer.

Ahead of English Tourism Week from March 30 to April 7, Discover our Land is encouraging local people to celebrate the county.

Photographs can be of anything, from the county’s historic landmarks to picturesque landscapes, unspoilt beaches, friendly market towns or a fun family day out.

Professional and amateur photographers of all ages across the North-East are being invited to enter, with their entries having to impress a panel of expert judges including professional photographer Neil Denham, whose work includes photographing the Royal Family, to wedding celebrations in Northumberland. Joining Neil will be Iain Robson from the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership, and Duncan Wise from Northumberland national park.

One winning photograph will be chosen, seeing its photographer take home a two night stay for two people at the Amble Inn. A runner-up will win a Produced in Northumberland hamper, and there is also a children’s prize for under-16s.

Winning entries and the best of the bunch will be shared across the Discover our Land social media channels during English Tourism Week.
