Super snappers could have their perfect pictures of Yorkshire hung on the walls in a city museum.
Budding photographers of all ages and abilities can enter ‘A Snapshot of Yorkshire’ competition which launched today with five categories to show off your talent.
The categories are aimed at celebrating Yorkshire today – Working Life in Yorkshire wants pictures of everyday people working in the county, while Yorkshire Celebrations asks for images at public events and of festivals goers.
Other categories include Yorkshire holidays, Yorkshire Sport and People at Home in Yorkshire.
Councillor Lucinda Yeadon, Leeds City Council’s Executive member for leisure and skills, said: “This is the perfect opportunity for anyone with a real passion for Yorkshire to showcase their pictures of a great county. Don’t miss out on your chance to display how great Yorkshire is.”
Winners will have a chance to have their photographs displayed alongside Leeds Artist George Walker in the Abbey House Museum in Kirkstall, as well as receiving a Yorkshire-themed prize.
The Leeds museum will be celebrating the 200-year anniversary of his work The costume of Yorkshire 1814, with 40 of his pieces on display.
And the aim of the competition is to compare and contrast Yorkshire today with the time of George Walker’s prints. To enter, go to Yorkshire.email@example.com – include when and where the photo was taken, who is in the picture and the category you are entering.
The competition closes on Friday, December 6 and the exhibition will run from January 25.
