The wonderful images submitted by Lancashire Life readers in recent weeks which have been entered into our annual hunt for county’s best amateur photographer.

You have until Friday September 22nd to get your entry in. On that day the shutters come down and our judges will begin the hard task of choosing a winner.

There are just two rules – the competition is not open to professional photographers and while the pictures can contain any subject matter – landscapes, wildlife, views or people – they must be taken in Lancashire or the Lake District.
