The best images of the picturesque seaside town will feature in the 2018 publication

Photographers of all ages and experience are being invited to enter a competition to see their images in the official Lyme Regis tourist guide.

The best images of the picturesque Dorset seaside town will feature in the 2018 guide.

The judges are looking for images which show a variety of life in Lyme Regis, including landscapes, events, local attractions, people, and interesting buildings and architecture.

The official guide for the resort is produced annually by Lyme Regis Town Council, with 25,000 copies distributed to potential visitors.

The winning photographs will appear alongside images by Simon Emmett, the official photographer for the guide and the tourism website, lymeregis.org.

Simon will be one of the judges helping to choose the very best of the entries.

Cllr Cheryl Reynolds, chairman of the council’s tourism, community and publicity committee, said: “The Lyme Regis guide had a major re-design for 2017, including fantastic new pictures by Simon Emmett.

“There’s a wealth of talent out there and we’d like to capture that in our 2018 guide.

“Lyme Regis is a beautiful, unique and picturesque town and the perfect backdrop to any photograph.

“You don’t have to be a professional photographer to enter this competition, it’s open to people of all ages and experience.

“We hope the competition will produce some inspiring and captivating photographs and show Lyme Regis from as many different perspectives as possible.”

The closing date for entries is Friday, September 29.

Pictures must be at least 1Mb in size and should be sent to Sophie at assistant2@lymeregistowncouncil.gov.uk, along with your name, address, telephone number, and the date and brief description of the photo.
