It’s open for anyone to enter, with two categories; one for people aged under 18, the other for those aged over 18. The best images will win a prize and feature in a calendar set to go on sale later this year.

You’ll also need to include your name, age (junior or adult) and contact details. Entries are limited to three per person and the competition closes on 1 September 2017.
