The Observer’s chief reporter Laura Cartledge said: “Working with the trust to celebrate our town in this way – and the talents of the people who live here – is always something we enjoy.

“This year we are keen to find out more about you, the photographer, too.

“Why you were inspired to take the picture? What do you love most about Bognor Regis? Please include the stories behind your snaps with your entries and we’ll look to publish profiles and pictures in the weeks which follow – good luck!”

There are prizes for both adult – first place £50 voucher for Sussex Camera Centre, second place £25 voucher for Sussex Camera Centre – and child categories – first place £25 voucher for Sussex Camera Centre, second place Picturedrome tickets.

Winners in both categories and ten runners-up will have their photographs made up into postcards.
