AMATEUR photographers across the West Highlands and Islands are being urged to get snapping with Wyvex Media’s Photo of the Year competition.
We are looking for photographs that sum up why this part of the world is your favourite.
It can be anything, from your favourite place or activity to a picturesque sunset or local wildlife.
Entries will be accepted until the end of January, so there is plenty of time to get out and about to grab that winning image.
Each week, we’ll run a selection of the best photographs and even if you’re not taking part, you can vote for your favourite.
Either fill in the coupon which will appear each week while the competition is running in the Argyllshire Advertiser or text POY plus the number in the bottom right hand corner of the photo to 88010. You can vote for your favourite as many times as you like over the course of the competition.
The most popular photographs stand a chance of winning fantastic prizes in the Photo of the Year People’s Vote and our judges’ Grand Prize categories.
To enter, log on to www.argyllshireadvertiser.co.uk/poy or send a CD of your images to Wyvex Media, Photo of the Year, Lochavullin Industrial Estate, Crannog Lane, Oban PA34 4HB.
