Stanton Cross Developments will present £500 to the talented winner, with two runners up both set to receive £250 each.

Paul Boatman, Project Director East Division at Bovis Homes responsible for Stanton Cross, said: “Wellingborough is a vibrant and lively town with a strong sense of community and an even stronger sense of local pride, and our photography competition gives the people who really know it best the opportunity to capture the best of the town.  

“With the changing landscape at Stanton Cross, the wildlife and ecology within the local parks and surrounding countryside, and the buzz of the town, there is a wide range of material for budding photographers in the area.  This is an opportunity for the people of Wellingborough to bring their vision of Wellingborough into focus; and we look forward to seeing the very best that the town has to offer in both photography talent, views, landscapes and life.”
