THE deadline is looming for the county’s best young photographers to submit their entries for the 2014 Young Photographer of the Year competition ran by Hereford College of Arts.

The annual contest is open to anyone 9-19-years-old – split into three age groups ¬– and this year’s theme is ‘energy’.

Photos must be submitted by September 12 to stand a chance of winning a range of great prizes for the aspiring shutterbug, from a one-to-one workshop with a professional photographer to cash prizes and portfolio to store your collection.

Entrants will also have their work exhibited at the college during the autumn term.
