With spring on the way, it's the perfect time to get out and capture the natural beauty of Chorley. Why not head to your local park or capture the joys of urban wildlife right on your doorstep?

The Chorley Flower Show is a fantastic place to showcase your talent. Five images will be shortlisted from each category and displayed at the show and the more than 13,000 people who pass through the event will be able to vote for their favourites.

The winning photographer's images will be used in publicity material for next year's show, will feature in the programme, and will be displayed at the event. Adult winners will receive a wristband ticket for next year's show while the young photographer winner will receive a special hamper.
