Does your picture have the wow factor?

Young photographers aged under 16 and under could win a special prize as part of the search for images for next year’s Hopton in Bloom calendar.

The  Hopton in Bloom  calendar has been produced annually since 2007 with all the proceeds going to village projects and planting for the Yorkshire in  Bloom competition.

James Bland, from the team, said: “Our supporters keep asking for more photographs of the village in all its blooming glory, village icons and  landmarks, surrounding local  scenes, colourful displays, seasonal colours and moods, views of Upper Hopton and interesting features in the village’s gardens. There’s plenty of scope.”

Photographs  do  not  need  to  be  technically perfect, but need to have a wow factor.

All  entries  should include  the  entrants’  name,  age  if  16  and  under,  where  the  photograph  was  taken,  date it was taken and a contact number  or email address must be submitted to James Bland on a CD, USB Memory device  or  by  email to or  call 01924 502478.

Entries close at midnight on May 20 and ideally, entries should be landscape, high resolution, jpg format.

Entries will be judged by the team in June.
