ENTRIES to our competition to find the best photograph of Lendal Bridge are pouring in.

On January 8, it will be 150 years to the day since Lendal Bridge opened to the public and we have teamed up with City of York Council to mark the anniversary.

We have launched a photography competition running from now until the end of the year, inviting people to send us their pictures.

Local businesses York Boat and The Maltings pub (formerly The Lendal Bridge Hotel) have donated prizes for the winners and the picture chosen by our judges will be displayed in The Press, on our website, in the reception of the council’s Guildhall and on the council website.

To enter, you can send photographs by post to Gavin Aitchison, The Press, 76-86 Walmgate, York, YO1 9YN, or email photographers@thepress.co.uk or upload pictures to the flickr group:www.flickr.com/groups/lendalbridge/

If emailing pictures, please put “Lendal Bridge competition” in the subject line and include your name and a telephone number on which we can contact you.
