Would you like to see your photograph exhibited during the South Devon AONB's 50th birthday celebrations, and have the chance to win a balloon flight over the area?
2010 is the year South Devon celebrates 50 years as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Designated by government in 1960 it is recognised as one of England's finest landscapes.
Please help us mark the occasion by entering our photography competition, showing why you think this area is so special. Only images taken within the AONB qualify, so please see the map to find out the area of South Devon that is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We would encourage you to delve beneath the surface and capture some scenes that are special to you avoiding the overdone and third images.
Take your camera wherever you go and capture your everyday life in a way which will inspire others and tell a little story with it to express what the image means to you and your life. What is everyday to you may be completely new to others.
The panel of three judges will be chaired by Roy Sims past Principal of Plymouth College of Art and Design.
