A TOP prize of £3,000 is up for grabs in an amateur photography competition aimed at celebrating the work of community groups, small charities and social enterprises.

Organised by the Two Ridings Community Foundation and North Yorkshire High Sheriff Clare Granger, organisations in Craven and across the county, are being invited to send in photographs that capture the essence of 'community' in two categories - 'our people' and 'our place'.

Bec Horner, communications manager at Two Ridings, said: “We really want groups to show off the people of our region and what community means to them. They say a photo says a thousand words, and we want to see that. We know that community organisations in the region do such vital work for local people. We want them to capture the energy, the vibrancy and the magic that is happening all over.”

The photographs will be judged by a panel of six and the shortlisted groups will be invited to an exhibition at Allerton Castle, Knaresborough,in October where the winners will be announced.The first prize in each category is £3,000, second, £2,000 and third, £1,000.

Photographs must be taken by amateurs, not professionals. Deadline for entries is Tuesday, September 5.
