Derby Telegraph and University of Derby Photography Week will run from April 1 online, in our paper and on the university's website. It will be a chance for us to feature what we love about Derbyshire through photography.
The best images will be published in the Derby Telegraph during Photography Week and will also feature in The Derbyshire Magazine.
Your pictures will be in a virtual exhibition once the contest begins, with content uploaded regularly during the entry period online so your work can be seen by thousands.
This showcase will be updated regularly with new entries as they are submitted. We want to give you the chance to have your photos on display at the same time as some of the world's greatest photographers exhibited in our city at Format 13.
You will be able to see your shots on www.thisisderbyshire.co.uk/pictures. We also will be tweeting using "#lovederbyshire" during the entry period.
You can also see the latest entries here.
Huw Davies, dean of the university's faculty of arts, design and technology, and one of the competition judges, said: "We're thrilled to be partnering the Derby Telegraph for this competition.
"Photography at the University of Derby enjoys a rich heritage. It's one of faculty's most popular courses and we're extremely proud of the fantastic work that our students and graduates produce in this field.
"Coming from a background in photography myself, I'm particularly looking forward to seeing how the competition brief is interpreted and brings the best of Derbyshire to life – best of luck to everyone!"
The theme for our competition is simple: show us what you love about our county. This might be a flavour of our county, a mood or a theme that you want to share that says everything about Derbyshire to you.
Our panel of judges will include Derby Telegraph editor Neil White, picture editor Victoria Wilcox and Mr Davies. Victoria said: "We will be looking for originality, skill and, above all, style. It's going to be a great celebration of our county and our citizen journalists out there will get a chance to impress us."
This is your chance to show us what you can do. What are you waiting for?
