BUDDING photographers - start getting snap happy in Suffolk.

If you can capture a more stunning vista than this picture, you could be in with a great chance of winning an exciting new competition.

The East of England Co-operative Society has launched a contest to find the best photographs in Suffolk for a special 2010 calendar.

The inaugural competition, called “Visions of East Anglia,” is open to all amateur photographers living in Suffolk.

The Co-op is looking for vibrant photos, with good composition, that reflect your interpretation of the best scenes in our region.

Richard Samson, chief executive of the East of England Co-operative Society, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for local people to see their photos published in thousands of calendars. Photos can be traditional or perhaps a rather more quirky or unusual view of a local scene.

“We are looking forward to receiving some really special photos and I'm sure the task of choosing the best ones will not be easy for our judging panel.”

Each of the twelve winning photographers selected by a judging panel, including The Evening Star's editor Nigel Pickover, will have their image printed on the calendar.

They will also receive a �50 voucher to spend in a Co-op store.

More than 30,000 calendars will be printed and they will be available for sale from October 2009 in all East of England Co-op stores across Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.

Entries should be unmounted 10x8in photographic prints, clearly labelled with your name, address, contact telephone number (daytime and evening), email address and where the photograph was taken. Photographs should be a minimum of 300dpi.

They should be sent to: Visions of East Anglia Competition, Marketing Department, East of England Co-operative Society, 47 St Helen's Street, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP4 2JL.
