THE search is on for budding photographers in Northumberland.

Arriva North East has organised a competition designed to explore the role of public transport in communities and is looking for photos of buses at work in local areas.

People are being invited to submit images of Arriva buses in a variety of settings, and should be shown playing an essential part in daily life such as meeting with friends, and linking communities.

Photos and contact details of the photographer should be sent to photo@arriva.co.uk by Monday, July 31. The national winner will receive a Sony digital SLR camera. The North East winner will receive vouchers. All winners will have their photo published on the Arriva website.
