PHOTOGRAPHERS have been urged to get behind their lenses for the latest Bognor Regis Pier Trust annual photographic competition.

The success of last year’s initial event has seen the trust organise another one to get keen amateurs snapping away.

The scope of the competition has been widened to include the people and places of the town as well as the pier.

Community organiser Val Souchet, who works with the trust, said the contest was named The Bigger Picture.

“We believe the regeneration of the pier would be a really good starting point for the town’s regeneration.

“We see it as being part of the bigger picture of what is happening in Bognor.

“It’s not just the pier. It’s the effect it has on the town.”

The contest is open and ends next March 1. Winners will be announced on March 15.

Entries can be uploaded or messaged to ‘friends of bognor pier’ on Facebook with #WeLoveBognorRegis or sent to Twitter using @BognorPierTrust.

They can also be emailed to:

Prints sized 10in x 8in can also be handed in to or sent to: Bognor Regis Trust Photographic Competition, Bognor Regis Observer, Place St Maur, Bognor Regis PO21 1BJ.

Names and contact details must be included for emailed, posted and hand-delivered entries.

The winner will see their photo framed and exhibited in Oxford’s Bar & Restaurant in the High Street.

The runner up will have their photo printed on a 16in x 24in canvas with a 12in x 16in canvas for the third-placed entry.
