There's £100 High Street shopping vouchers to be won, plus a framed print of the winning photo courtesy of Fairhurst Accountants.

A message from the sponsors, Fairhurst Accountants:

This is our fifth year of sponsoring the competition and we are always very impressed with the creativity of the photographs which bring out the real beauty in some of our well-known and not so well-known local places.

We hope that this year Wigan inspires even more people to enter the competition.

As an accountancy firm, we obviously spend much of our time looking at financial details for clients.

Although we love what we do, it is a welcome change to be part of this imaginative and visual process and to recognise the obvious talent and ability the local community have, to create such amazing images.

We are always keen to take part in local initiatives and to help people account for their potential.

We find the ‘Wigan in Photos’ competition particularly interesting, as it gives the whole community the opportunity to take part.

As technology advances, many pictures will be taken on smartphones and tablets, as well as cameras - some on impulse and others with much planning.

This is what makes this competition special and we would like to congratulate everyone who takes part.

Good luck to all!
