The theme for this year’s competition run by Thatcham Photographic Club has been announced.
Youngsters aged up to 17 are asked to take pictures with the theme ‘the natural world’, and what this means to them.
Students living or studying within 10 miles of Thatcham can submit up to three photos for the competition, which is again sponsored by the Newbury & Thatcham Observer.
Paul Roberts, chairman of Thatcham Photographic Club, said: “This is our third year of this student competition and the catchment area has been enlarged to include schools from Newbury to Theale.
“The club encourages young people to take an interest in photography and frequently works with young people’s groups on activities and workshops to foster and develop photographic awareness.”
There are three categories for different age groups, with vouchers of up to £50 on offer for the winning photographers.
Submissions can be made until September 22. The results will be announced at October’s Thatcham Festival.
