Last year's winning image - Puffin with his eyes closed, by Chris Orange.

Photos submitted can be of virtually anything, but must have been taken within the Northumberland Coast AONB in 2017. The closing date for entries is Friday, October 6.

The winner will not only see their image on the front cover of 50,000 copies of the 2018 guide, but also receive a voucher for £150 to spend at Stait Photo of Morpeth and Hexham, which is once again sponsoring the competition.

The runners-up will receive a canvas print of their image. Ken Stait will be acting as one of the judges.

Jane Coltman, image manager for the Johnston Press Northumberland titles – Northumberland Gazette, Berwick Advertiser, Morpeth Herald and News Post Leader – is also a judge. She said: “It is always a delight to be involved in the process of selecting the cover picture for the Visitor Guide. I love seeing the many and varied ways people express their passion of the Northumberland coast through their photography”.
