Capture the front cover image for the 2019 Visitor Guide

The Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) are once again

holding a competition to find an image for the cover of their 2019 Visitor Guide.

Photos submitted can be of virtually anything, but to be eligible, the photo must have

been taken within the Northumberland Coast AONB in 2018. The closing date for entries is

Friday 19th October 2018.

The winner will not only see their image on the front cover of 50,000 copies of the guide,

but also receive a voucher for £150 to spend at Stait Photo of Morpeth and Hexham, who

are once again sponsoring the competition. The runners-up will receive a canvas print of

their image. Ken Stait will be acting as one of the judges.

Jane Coltman, Image Manager for Johnston Press Northumberland titles is also a judge.

She said: " It is always a pleasure to look at the pictures and discover the photographic

talents of people who love the Northumberland Coast as much as we do”.

Last year's winn ing entry was taken by Ben Wayman, a photographer who lives in

Newcastle. Ben explained how his shot captured the beauty of the landscape saying: “As a

change from my usual Northumberland woodland or hill walk, I decided to head up the

coast. I was familiar with the great sweeping beaches but thought I’d head to Holy

Island/Lindisfarne early to watch the sunrise. Luckily, the clouds began to break up and

the Sun burst through, lighting up the island. What better way to begin your day? We are

so very lucky to have such a beautiful landscape on our doorstep; if we deserve to have it,

then it serves to be looked after and cherished” .

Images need to be submitted in an electronic format and be of a high enough resolution to

be used on the cover of the guide. More advice, previous visitor guide covers and the full

set of rules are on the latest blog on the AONB website.
