Contest to find coast photo for guidebook

Budding photographers could see their photo of the north Northumberland coast on the front of next year’s visitor guide.

The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Partnership is holding a photography competition this summer to find a cover for its 2014 Northumberland Coast Visitor Guide.

Liz Walters, from the Partnership, said: “We publish 40,000 copies of our visitor guide each year, the guide provides lots of really useful information helping visitors to make the most of their visit to the coast.

“First impressions count, so it is really important to have a front cover image that is really stunning and will encourage visitors to pick up a copy and read it.”

Images need to be in an electronic format and be 280x356 mm (resolution 300dpi). Previous guide covers and the full set of rules are online at
