You could win terrific prizes from Wilkinson Cameras in our super photographic competition. The winner will be put forward to the Great British Life Photo Competition. This month we focus on buildings

From our dark satanic mills to the rich russet red of Accrington brick, Lancashire has a wealth of beautiful buildings. Liverpools three graces, Blackpools famous tower and our collection of stately homes grab the limelight but, as these images show, there are many more lovely buildings around the county.


These four shots are just a few of the huge number which is building up in our office and on our website as hundreds of amateur photographers compete for wonderful prizes from Wilkinson Cameras.
