People are being urged to get snap happy over the Residents’ Festival weekend to win a Canon digital camera.

This weekend, residents will be able to enjoy free or discounted entry to more than 30 attractions and activities.

Through the competition, Northumberland County Council wants to find the photographer who can best capture one of the many attractions on offer over the weekend and let everyone see how they are enjoying the Festival weekend. It will also give residents a chance to show what they think is their favourite tourist attraction within the county.

The winning entry will be judged by a leading local professional photographer and will receive the Canon PowerShot 16x zoom compact camera.

Four runners-up will be awarded family annual English Heritage passes or a family day pass to Cragside courtesy of English Heritage and the National Trust.

Entrants’ photos will be used on the Northumberland County Council social-media sites, with the winning entries taking pride of place on the council’s website.
