Photographers are being invited to send in their images which capture the spirit of the seaside – with the winning picture set to be featured on a mayor’s Christmas card.

Mayor of Felixstowe, Nick Barber said: “We are launching this competition in order to find a photo that will reflect our great town of Felixstowe on the theme ‘Great Days by the Sea’.

“The winning photograph will then be used as my official Mayor’s Christmas Card for 2017 and the mayoress and I will invite the winner and their guest for dinner at a local restaurant.”

People of any age are welcome to enter up to six photographs via email to for consideration by the closing date of November 10.

Entrants must have full rights to the supplied images and give permission for Felixstowe Town Council to use them.
