Images will show love for county

A HUGE number of entries have been submitted by budding photographers to a county competition.

The LOVE Northumberland campaign aims to find the amateur snapper who has captured their favourite view of Northumberland.

It has brought in more than 240 images.

With pictures taken at locations all over Northumberland, judges now have the difficult task of drawing up a short-list then selecting a winner.

The winning entry will receive £50 worth of garden centre vouchers.

Short-listed entries will feature in an exhibition in one of the county’s libraries, and in a gallery on the council’s Facebook page.

Coun Isabel Hunter, executive member responsible for infrastructure and the environment at the county council, said: “The standard of photographs has been extremely high.

“We are pleased that we will be able to feature the winner and other short-listed entries in an exhibition and online, so that they can be widely seen and enjoyed.

“We will also be using some to promote our beautiful county as part of the LOVE Northumberland campaign.”

Love Northumberland – caring for our county, is a campaign that aims to promote the work of Northumberland County Council and its partners in preserving and improving the environment, celebrating community spirit and promoting pride.
