The clock is now ticking towards when we have to call time on entries for our brilliant Specsavers Life Thru The Lens photographic competition.

Midday on Monday December 9 will be the cut-off point for you to send us your spectacular shots

The tough task will then be on to decide who the winner of the competition is and who will take home a digital camera worth hundreds of pounds provided by our sponsor Specsavers, of Bath Street, Ilkeston.

Among the entries that have flooded into our email inbox is this shot taken by Ann Davis of Newthorpe and captures the calm of the early morning at Greasley Recreation ground.

Both the ‘Advertier and Specsavers have joined forces to bring you this wonderful opportunity, now it is down to you, our readers, to get out and about with your cameras and smartphones and capture your final images as the closing date looms

The only limit is your ambition and creative flair.

Can you sum up the town’s industrial heritage in a single shot?

Perhaps the old Kimberley Brewery would provide the perfect backdrop?

The next step is to email or post your entry to us with specific details (SEE BELOW).

The competition will run for the next few weeks to allow you to take advantage of the changing seasons to add atmosphere to your shots.

And we will showcase some of your entries each week in the paper and online.

Once the competition closes, a group of finalists will be selected before a panel of judges select the overall winner.

There will then be a presentation night at the Specsavers store where the finalists’ images will also be exhibited.

As mentioned, Specsavers Ilkeston is providing a top prize of a top digital camera.

Krishna Parmar, director at Ilkeston Specsavers, said: “We’re really pleased to be sponsoring Life Thru the Lens . We can’t wait to see your entries.”
