The new Capture Hammersmith competition hopes to encourage everyone who lives and works in the town to take a fresh look at their surroundings.

“We want to make this an annual tradition to celebrate Hammersmith,” explained Edward Finlay, director of Willmotts estate agency in Blacks Road, Hammersmith, which is organising the competition.

There are three categories: people, nature and architecture. Prizes will be awarded for the best picture in each, with a £500 voucher for the overall winner.

There will be an exhibition of pictures later in the year, with a shortlist being chosen by Alex Saberi, a National Geographic photographer, and the winners being picked by public votes.

You can enter as many times as you like, but it is aimed at amateur snappers... not professionals.

The closing date is 30 November, so get snapping.

Full competition rules can be found on the Willmotts estate agency website. Entries should be posted on Instagram.
