Snap happy: images of Paignton Pier may feature in the photography competition

We’re asking budding photographers to enter their pictures of Paignton, Devon, in a competition to find the very best – and raise funds for a local school.

Our South West region is running the contest in which the 12 winning shots will be produced as a calendar, to be sold with all proceeds going to White Rock Primary School.

Brian Deacon, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes South West, said: “We wanted to celebrate Paignton, its architecture and its people and thought a photography competition would be a fantastic idea.

“We’re looking for pictures from local people of all ages. We’re enjoying some wonderful weather this summer so we’re hoping children especially will make the most of the school holidays by taking some winning pictures.”

The prize for the best picture (aged 12 years or over) is £250. The prizes for the 11 years and under category are: gold (£100), silver (£75) and bronze (£50).

The closing date for entries is Friday September 12th. Pictures should be sent in high resolution, up to five megapixels, to There is no limit to the number of entries that can be made.
