A PHOTOGRAPHIC competition is being launched challenging snappers to capture on camera why Suffolk is a good place to live.

The Suffolk Mental Health Partnership Trust is throwing down the gauntlet to members of the public, and its patients and staff.

Paul Vinters, organising the competition, said: “We will be looking for photographs which say something about why Suffolk is a great place to live and work, and so technical expertise will not be the main deciding factor.

“We see mental well-being as being everybody's business and so this is a great way for people to look around and take a picture of something which makes them feel good about Suffolk.

“This could be the excitement of match day at Portman Road and the elation of a Blues victory or maybe, for some, fish and chips eaten on Aldeburgh beach.

“Perhaps the best part of the competition is that the winners will have their photographs displayed on the Trust's website so that everyone can appreciate their view of Suffolk.”
