Many people in the Brigg area have an interest in photography and some of them were taking pictures at Brigg Horse Fair 2017 on Saturday.
Local folk who enjoying ventured forth, camera in hand, are now being given the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in a competition.
North Lincolnshire Council says the 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, in Scunthorpe town centre, is calling on photographers of all abilities with a passion for North Lincolnshire’s landscape to enter this photography competition.
It opened at the weekend and ends on Sunday, August 29.
20-21 is running the competition as part of their Photography Day on Saturday 19 August and wants to see your best photographs of North Lincolnshire.
All you have to do to enter is post your photos on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #thisisnorthlincs
A spokesman for the council told us: "If the post isn’t available for the public to see, we won’t be able to view your photographs and your entry will be invalid.
"Whether you are an amateur, semi-professional or professional photographer we want to see your photographs of North Lincolnshire.
"The winner will be announced towards the end of August/early September.
"The five most exciting photographs will be displayed on the TV in the 20-21 Café, with the overall winner also offered the chance to take over the 20-21 Instagram account for a week in the near future."

Coun Carl Sherwood, from Brigg, the council's cabinet member for community wellbeing, said: "We look forward to seeing all your wonderful photographs of North Lincolnshire online, so make sure you use the hashtag #thisisnorthlincs when you upload your photos to social media to enter the competition.
“The photographs will look great on the 20-21 Café walls!”
Brigg Blog took this picture of Coun Carl when we visited Hibaldstow a few years ago for an event on the former RAF airfield which included a fly-past by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight's Lancaster bomber. Carl, to his credit, had arrived by cycle while everyone else took to the car. The strong spring sunlight reflecting off the display board would not impress the judges in the council competition but at least we got Carl in focus!
