Residents are being urged to take part in a special photography challenge to celebrate our wonderful environment.

Amateur photographers across the Malverns are being encouraged to share their best photos of the district including anything from the stunning landscapes and rich heritage to wildlife and people enjoying the environment.

The top ten photographs will be framed and exhibited at the Great Malvern Priory for three weeks in November/December, as well as shared on the official council and Visit the Malverns social media pages.
