People in Jersey are being asked to take a photo of something in the island that they are proud of.

It is for a photography competition which invites Islanders to consider and express their 'island views' ahead of next year’s General Election.

Anybody over the age of 13 can share their photo of something they are proud of, or something they would like to change about the island.

So far there have been more than 100 entries from coastal shots to rural and heritage. The winner, who gets the most votes, will get the opportunity to shadow award-winning Royal Family photographer, Matt Porteous. While the runners-up will receive prizes from Fotosound Jersey and the Framing Workshop Ltd.

Jersey's Greffier of the States says the competition is a "fantastic opportunity" for islanders to channel their creativity and capture what is important to them in Jersey, while engaging in the local democratic system.

Photos can be submitted until midnight on Sunday 19 September via the vote.je website.

The images will then be displayed as part of an online gallery and during Democracy Week (28 September - 8 October) they will be presented in a public exhibition in the Royal Square.

Islander can vote for their favourite image between 28 September and 1 October in the Royal Square and online.
