Photo competition: Submit your favourite photographs to be our 'Photo of the Month'.

We’ve had a great response from local photographers to our Sharp Focus competition. Keep sending in your fantastic pictures. 

We have been amazed at the quality of the photographs people are taking on their iphones, ipads and digital cameras. 

We have invited you to submit your favourite snaps and you've jumped at the chance. Whatever the subject - people, nature, landscapes, oddities - we want to see the diversity of this great area in all its glory.

Each month a team of  judges will select a “Photo of the Month” for our papers in the New England and North West, with the winning entries featuring on the front page and our Facebook page. 

We'll be sharing a selection of the entries online, in print and on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter throughout the month.

Come back regularly to see if your entry is featured.

So capture the colour of your world and send us your top pictures. Just click on the link and start uploading.
