Fancy yourself a budding wildlife photographer? Then enter one of your photos into the North East Wildlife Photography Competition 2017

Anyone can enter, and there is even a category for mobile phone images so you don’t need lots of equipment or experience to have a go.

There is a category for photographers under the age of 16 – with the winner’s school receiving a £100 bonus.

First prize wins £250 and an A3 framed copy of their picture, but there are a whole range of prizes to be won, including boat trips to the Farne Islands, photography workshops and a pair of Savanna binoculars.
