THE Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) is encouraging Ashbourne's amateur photographers to take part in its nature competition.
The Julian Gardner award is given to the picture that best encapsulates the beauty of the British countryside.
The award is made in two categories: adult and 16-and-under.
GWCT publications editor, Louise Shervington, said: "There are some wonderful countryside scenes just waiting to be captured, especially as we move further into spring."
The competition can be entered by e-mailing pictures to photocompetition @gwct.org.uk before midnight on May 31.
The winners will be announced in July.
