PHOTOGRAPHERS hoping to impress the judges of this year’s VisitWiltshire photograph competition have just days left to capture their award-winning shots.

The competition, which has been running throughout the summer, will close on Saturday.

Among some of the entries already submitted in this year's competition are firey skies over Salisbury Cathedral by Christine Elsworth who lives in the city, as well as a photograph of a falconer poised to let his Harris Hawk loose over Mere Down.

Dylan Higginson from Abbey Meads submitted a photo captured just at the right moment of a hound coming bounding towards the camera on Seven Fields, as well as a colourful sunset at St Andrews Ridge.

Emma Johnston from Okus has also been busy out and about in Old Town with her camera, capturing images of the Town Gardens, the band stand and scenes further afield in Lechlade.

To be in with a chance of winning, your photos should capture the essence of life in Wiltshire, its people and landscape, and tie in with any of VisitWiltshire's four ‘Timeless’ themes:

• Timeless Wonders: including Stonehenge, Avebury, Salisbury Cathedral, the Kennet & Avon Canal and Wiltshire’s White Horses

• Timeless Places: including market towns, villages and other attractions

• Timeless Pleasures: including shopping, food and drink, festivals and events, arts and entertainment

• Timeless Nature: including big skies, rolling hills, flora and fauna

Castle Cameras in Salisbury are offering up a Nikon D3300 camera with 18-55 lens – worth over £300 – for the best photograph overall, plus two runners up prizes of a £50 gift voucher each to spend at Castle Cameras.

The competition runs until Saturday, September 30. To give yourself the best chance of winning you can send in up to eight photographs per calendar month to arrive by midnight on the last day of each month. Only colour, digital photos will be accepted and all photographs must be submitted as jpeg or tiff attachments, minimum resolution 300dpi.
