Bureau chairman Nick White said: “North Devon is a beautiful, picturesque location and we’re looking forward to seeing the talent of local photographers to share, and entice others to visit the area.

“We’re looking for entries that really capture what people love about North Devon; from the beautiful beaches to the idyllic landscapes – get creative, but most of all, have fun.”

The winning entry will be chosen on March 31 by panel of judges from the bureau, J&A Cameras and the Gazette.

It will be featured in the Gazette and the winning photographer will also receive and a J&A Cameras portrait session worth £100.
