COMMUNITY group Otley 2030 is running an art and photography competition, encouraging children and adults to capture the wonderful wildlife and greenspaces at the East of Otley.

In reaction to plans for a development of 550 new homes and relief road on the eastern outskirts of the town, people are being encouraged to take photos and create artworks, which celebrate the beauty of the Irish Fields, Ings Tip and the surrounding fields, streams, trees and hedgerows.

The competition will run throughout the spring, until Friday, April 30, with categories for adults and children.

Otley photographer, Steve Davey, will be judging the photos and local designer, Kate Broughton will judge the artwork.

First prize winners will have their winning piece framed by The Art Works, Otley, and be part of an exhibition in their gallery (restrictions permitting). They will also be able to keep their framed winning entry. There will also be runner-up prizes, including exclusive tote bags and rucksacks.
