The region's top amateur photographers showcase their work

Its been a great year for photography in the North East and, as expected, readers of North East Life have demonstrated unrivalled enthusiasm for getting out with their cameras and capturing our beautiful landscape in all its moods.
From the chill of one of the coldest winters on record to what, mostly, has been a nice summer in the region, your pictures illustrate the ever-changing complexion of our wonderful countryside and seashore.
Readers are also setting the pace in entering their photographs for the Great British Photograph of the Year, with a prize of 5,000 for the winning photographer. The closing date is September 30, so theres still plenty of time to submit that winning entry.
Such has been the response to our Readers Photographs website pages that we will, in future, move to selecting pictures for this feature in the magazine from the website. We will also continue to make selections from disks previously supplied by readers, although we are requesting that no further disks be submitted for consideration.
Because of the low resolution of website photographs, readers whose pictures are selected for print will be contacted in advance for hi-res images and captions.
The Readers Gallery feature in the magazine is only open to amateur photographers. Although the website contains beautiful pictures from other places, notably the Lake District, we will continue to select pictures for publication from within the counties of Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham and Cleveland. Readers whose pictures are selected will be asked to recognise our right to publish the pictures in North East Life at a date or dates to be decided by the co-editors. We also reserve the right to use photographs for North East Life promotional features. The name of the photographer will be credited on all published pictures.
To submit your pictures to North East Life, please go to, register your name, if you havent
already done so, and follow the guidance under the Reader Photos tab to upload your pictures.
